We plan on going to the library this week sometime to sign up for the reading program. I thought the boys would enjoy some of the activities they have to offer.


I totally agree...with EVERYTHING you just so eloquently stated. Thanks for sharing your beautiful talents and abilities. I love the way you say things! And your photos...absolutely gorgeous.


My husband gave me a Kindle for my birthday last year -- one of the best gifts I have ever received. Amazon offers a ton of books that can be downloaded for free, mostly 19th century literature. So I have read loads of Dickens, Austen, Twain -- books that I never would have read had I not had the Kindle. However, you are absolutely correct that nothing can replace an actual book.

I am currently reading Shelby Foote's trilogy on the Civil War. Yes, I actually had to pay for the Kindle version and I wish I had splurged and gotten the real books instead. It's time-consuming to try to turn back "pages" to look at the battlefield maps, much easier in a real book. Another disadvantage to Kindle is that there are no real pages, so if you lose your place it is nearly impossible to find it again... So, while I love the doors that Kindle has opened for me, I doubt that e-readers will ever put the publishers out of business.

We live in Tennessee although we're originally from Kansas. We grew up surrounded by tornadoes, in fact my late mother-in-law's first husband and little boy were killed by a tornado in Woodward, OK. She later moved to Udall, KS, where she lost her house to another tornado back in the early '50s. The storms are getting more widespread and vicious these days and, if we could sell our house, we would definitely move out of the "tornado belt." Do you have a storm shelter or a basement?

Boy, that wind was something. I have ereaders, but I also still read books. Mary it makes me sad you have to work so hard to read now. I know how much the written word means to you.~~Dee
