kindle-for-kids-2

Not so long ago, any time a child had with a screened device was seen as frivolous playtime.  That's not true now, because kids spend more time reading and doing school work with tablets and computers than parents would have thought possible just a few years ago.  In my household, most of our books were [...]

waterfi-waterproofed-kindle-paperwhite-2nd-edition

I used to love to fill the bathtub with hot water and soak and read a book until the water got cold and my skin got pruney.  There were a few times when I would get so sleepy and relaxed that I dropped my book in the water.  That would result in a ruined book, [...]

One of the perks of being a Kindle owner and an Amazon Prime member was the one free book you were allowed to "borrow" each month.  With only one free book, it could take you a long time to try out new authors you're interested in without having to risk some of your book budget [...]

I have a Fujifilm X-M1 camera that I purchased not too long ago. I thoroughly enjoy using this camera and intend to take good care of it.
