I hope everyone has had a great week. Those of us on the East Coast have been recovering from this weeks heavy snowfall. Someone had commented on how efficient the plow crews must be here based on the fact that with 18-20" of snow work was only closed for one day and a (2) hour delay the following day. I guess, with all of the snow we are use to in the Northeast, they finally have the routine down pat. The side streets were still pretty messy the day after but main roads were fine. When I got to work on Thursday I could not believe all the snow on the seating area outside of the library. Even allowing for some drifting, clearly more than 18" fell here:
A week after my SIL's surgery for breast cancer, her follow up visit with her surgeon came with good news. The nodes that were sent to pathology came back clean, so although she still must see an Oncologist next week, possibly for some hormone therapy drugs, it is unlikely that she will need any chemotherapy or radiation therapy after her mastectomy. Whew....we are all breathing easier, and except for a nasty cold, she is doing well for a week after surgery. THANK YOU once again for all the kindness you have showed. I appreciate it.
I know there is a lot of disagreement over whether readers prefer eBooks or a real old-fashion book. I was in the "old-fashion book" camp all along, but have to say that there are a lot of pluses when reading on my Kindle.
Reason #1) - I love eating lunch at work and only needing one finger to turn the page. Reason #2 - I love having (currently) about 40 books in my pocketbook at one time (all weighing just a few ounces). Reason #3) - Your eyes get tired more easily as you get older, and I can read for longer stints on my Kindle, than I can with a regular book and Reason #4 - I love sunlight, and I can read in the sun with no screen glare.
Are you an eBook convert? If so, do you have other reasons you sometimes prefer an eBook?
I currently have (3) books going right now, all on different devices, and am loving them all. How often does that happen?
- Matterhorn; Karl Marlentes (audio book) (wonderful Vietnam tell all novel written by one who was there)
- The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer; Mukherjee - eBook (FASCINATING)
- How to Read the Air; Dinaw Mengestu (print book) (beautiful writing; compelling story)
