#100 Good Friday Snow under the street light, early in the morning. The flakes were the size of ping pong balls and made the night look magical.

    The things I love about it
    - can store HUGE amounts of books on it.
    - can adjust the font size for my eyes (paperback books give me a headache these days)
    -no backlight (like the computer) = no glare. (although you might need a booklight if you read in low light situations)
    - ended the battle of keeping the bookmark in the book (Zora kept stealing them and I wasted a lot of time trying to find my place). It automatically brings the book up to the page you last read, forever.
    - can find a lot of public domain books, and the “regular” books are usually under $10 for the new releases. Pretend I didn’t say this, but I have heard you can find a lot of books on bit torrent sites.
    - although there is no “new book smell”, there is also no “old book smell” that makes me sneeze, even though I love the smell. lol.
    - if you buy a book from amazon, you can get it on the kindle in under a minute. if you turn off the wireless, the battery lasts a long, long time.

    Things I don’t like:
    - unlike your computer, where you can have file folders to organize everything, this just lists all of the files, with the most recently accessed first. It is likely there will be a hack to fix that later (there were for earlier versions), but it is new and I don’t know of any.
    - really too pricy for us, but with the upcoming trip it allows me to keep with the “no checked baggage” without sacrificing my most anticipated activity…reading, and reading and knitting. (I am working on converting some of my knitting patterns to files that I can put on there too, plus, I can prop it up and read while I knit because I don’t have to hold down pages in the wind).

    I lurve it. :love2: I carry it in my purse to therapy, read it while waiting in line, and have it next to me so I can grab when a child falls asleep in my lap. Very handy.

  • Let’s open our hearts in prayer. Gracious and loving God your son taught us that your kingdom is among us. Yet so often we treat life as something to be gotten through instead of something to be embraced and to be cherished. We look ahead to the end of the work day, to the week-end, to the summer vacation, to retirement, and we forget that the only time we will ever have is now. Open our eyes and open our hearts so we know that we cannot collect the moments we waste and store them for future use, and we cannot hide our love away, protecting it, thinking the ideal time will someday arrive when we can reach into that vast reservoir of love we have saved up and joyfully pour it upon the world. Tomorrow may never come and we cannot relive a single wasted yesterday. Today is all we will ever have. Grant us the wisdom to understand that now is the time to embrace the fragile beauty of life and now is the only time we will ever have to love the people you have placed beside us for this mysterious and beautiful journey. — Gary Cox, pastorial prayer, after his terminal cancer diagnosis.
