A Bit of Rambling

Hard for me to imagine, but I have actually gone nearly a week without reading a book.  UGH!  Life is crazy here this past week.  My Mr, likes to tease me about the books I read.  One of his favorite comments regards the ads that show up on my Kindle when it is turned off.  His funniest is when he jokingly asks me if the ads were chosen according to the books on my Kindle, what type of books or products would the ads be selling?  To this, I really have to say that I would rather not find out.  LOL  With all the "smut books" that are on the Kindle, I am certain that some embarrassing ads would be involved.  The term "smut books" is a running joke with Mr. and I. If he doesn't call it porn, that is.  I have an old VHS tape cabinet that is filled with 3 series of books by Christine Feehan.  That is affectionately called the Smut Cabinet.

I am still undecided about whether I prefer the ebooks or the paperback books.  Both have their place in my collection.  I love the convenience of my Kindle. However, I also can appreciate the feel of the actual books.  One of my prized collections is the entire KGI series by Maya Banks, which she autographed for me.  Yep! The entire series in paperback are all autographed.  They are carefully tucked away and I read the ebook versions.  Can't have the covers on the autographed copies to become worn looking!

I am quickly being won over by ebooks.  The lower cost and convenience are a plus.  I find myself trying out new authors using the Kindle.  If I really like a book, I will order a paperback version of the book to add to my collection.  That seems to be working great for me.  Reviewing books has offered me the opportunity to read many new-to-me authors and genre of books.  It is always a new adventure when reading a book from an author I have not read before.  I have been pleasantly surprised at the number of them that I look forward to reading more of their books.  With winter fast approaching, the extra reading will become a favorite pastime for me.
