Books

I recently purchased a Kobo Clare.  Backlit for reading at night, and so much easier to manage than the Kindle Paperwhite, which I absolutely hated.  I can put my fan fiction on it, AND, and it’s a big AND, I can borrow ebooks from my library that get delivered right to it.  But anyway, it gets me wondering, what is the deal with telling you how long it will take to read a book, and how much reading time is left before you finish?  Do you ask the librarian or the book store clerk how long it will take you to read this before you borrow/buy it?  I just find this strange, and annoying when it appears on my reader.  You can shut that off, thank goodness, but just the idea of it puzzles me.  Are we so stretched for time that we need to know how long it will take to even read a book?  Is it just me?  Puzzled Jean is puzzled.

It’s September.  Autumn at last.  I love, love, love autumn.  Some people see it as a precursor to the death that is winter, but winter is not dead, everything is just having a lovely nap getting ready to burst forth in spring.  Snow is just a cozy blanket.  Okay, I have seriously lost my marbles.  But it’s September.  Although I do still miss the annual shop for school supplies.  Even after both my girls were long out of school, I was still mentally preparing for the shopping.  Oh, well.  I love school/office supplies.  🙂  Happy September, everyone!
