A week ago our small local library invited all members to come along and borrow as many books, games and jigsaw puzzles as they could carry as the library was going to be closed for the duration of the lockdown period.
We could only find six books that we wanted to read. The lovely librarian, however, suggested that we also borrow one of the few kindles that they loan out to people on request.
It is a very basic model with around 100 books preloaded. It is locked to prevent any additional books being downloaded.
I have never used a kindle before but this one is so basic that it looks quite simple to use. Scroll through all the book titles, decide which one to read then just tap on it to start.
I shall have to work out how to discard a book if I change my mind part way through.
We are keeping it to one side until we have finished the remaining "real" books.
It is freezing cold here today. The forecast is for bright but cold and breezy weather for the next few days. At least we have no snow !
