My first Kindle White - reading in the 21st Century

I sometimes surprise myself, but today I decided to go out and treat myself.

I mean, here I am, busy writing; about to self publish my first two e books on Amazon KDP; and I had not even got a Kindle!

I admitted in an earlier blog, that I.T. has started to leave me behind, and I have always loved the feel of manuscript, and the joy of turning over the page corner, in eager anticipation of the next session.

But, I decided if I wanted to see my e books and those of my fellow writers on these hallowed groups, I needed a Kindle.

I now have a beautiful Kindle White - and I can read it in bright light.

Back to turning the page corners, I can even do that electronically.

Clever Kindle.

  2. Hi Megan; I have to admire your talent! I have reached chapter three and thoroughly enjoyed the scheming and plotting of the devious Aunt / step-mom.

Actually makes for a good read for male or female, and the sense of what is to come next is gripping. Can't wait to pick it up tomorrow and see off a few more chapters. Brilliant stuff!
