I already own over I'd say 300 e-books, mainly still murder mysteries, but some other stuff too, the nicest thing is since my MS makes my memory suck, I've started reading most of them over now and per various websites, in the order written, versus just however they were suggested to me by websites or friends. I've now finished my Catherine Coulter books and am now on the Fifth of the "in death" series bt J.D. Robb...great series!!! Yes by the end of the book I can pretty much guess/figure out who dunit, but I figure since I don't remember specifics and I very mmuh enjoy all the authors I'm rereading...why not. I have also now owned 4 different Kindles now and since they are all legally mine, if I've found somebody who likes mysteries, they can use the older Kindles and read any of my legally puchased books, or they can download anything they might like, as long as they pay for it.
So far, my 1st Kindle has found it's wat to my PT's (physical therapist's) 14-year old sons hands, we know her whole family, and as far as I can tell, I thinks she's just downloading some of the really old stuff that is in the public domain for free, she (my PT) has my second Kindle as she LOVES murder mysteries also, and has also been responsible for "turning me on," to a lot of these authors, like J.D Robb, so she gets most new stuff quicker on Kindle than at the library, or usually available the same day, if I know about it. Eric, my son-in-law has my Kindle fire, from what I understand from my hubby (I'm bed-bound and therefore don't get out much), he broke the operating system on it almost immediately. I had decided when I got the Kindle Fire, that I'd never ned another Kindle "unless" they came out with a Kindle with touchscreen but with better battery life then the Kinle Fire, which although it had the touchscreen, with the web-browser, the battery life sucked, and what did they do, the Kindle touch! Eric is also the father of my grandbaby and has downloaded some of the free apps, like for drawing or playing UNO. He also has an android phone and has downloaded some free apps for it.
It's distractions as far as I'm concerned and with rereading the books in order now, I don't think I've had to buy any "new" books in at least 6 months, so what the heck?
Well, I'll stop ranting on this subject for now...but I WILL be back...sorry.
