It doesn’t happen often, but it does happen occasionally – we get visitors from the USofA. Seems most people would rather visit an all inclusive resort on the Caribbean than come to Merida, even with Tom and me being here, hmpffff.
Well newlyweds, and long long time friend Joe, and bride Eilleen came to Mexico for their honeymoon, ok first they spent a week at an all inclusive resort on the Caribbean, but they also came to Merida for a visit with us. Very cool!
Years ago we introduced Joe to one of our favorite ‘fun read’ authors, Clive Cussler, and in particular to Cussler’s Dirt Pitt character. There must be 20 books in the Dirk Pitt series. Well Joe brought with him, and luckily for us, the most recent Dirk Pitt adventure, Poseidon’s Arrow. He left it for us since he finished it prior to his arrival in Merida.
I picked it up the other day and am reading it. I’ve had a kindle for several years now, and I hear people all the time going on about how they need a real book, to turn pages, to feel the paper, to flip back to re-read something, blah, blah, blah. Well I am officially a convert, I prefer a kindle (for pleasure reading, not for research reading). I tend to have several books going at once, can you imagine carrying around 3 or 4 books all the time?
The kindle is so light weight, you can adjust the font (really important as we get older), you can slip it in to a small purse, it remembers where you were you can have all your current reading projects with you all the time…
Paper books are heavy, flipping pages always wanting to close in on you, where’s the book mark, get the big purse out, sniffle, sniffle, snort, sniff. Yeah, I think I’m officially a kindle convert.
