I confess to a heavy reading habit. Buying books on the proposed budget is out of the question. The kindle and the laptop are the source on the road. Of course I will need some kind of power source ….
I am able to electronically download books for a two week read from the current local library … with my library card. The library has no idea that I am in Utah or New Mexico or right down the street. I just have to keep the library card up to date.
Amazon has all kinds of free books. Some of them are really bad. Some are really good. You have to wade through a bunch of dreck. But it is reading. And sometimes touching to see the struggle of beginning writers.
Of course I could always write a book.
