I have a Kindle Paperwhite and I loooove it. I first got my husband a Kindle years ago because he consumed so many books, we were running out of room. Then he got me one so I could read the books he was reading. We are both of the mind of liking to have a real book in hand. If you get yourself a cover, it feels right. One of my favorite things about my Paperwhite is the ability to read in a completely dark room without eyestrain.

I bought Planting and The Living Landscape this summer; both are great books for "dipping into." My pollinator class liked both of those, along with Bringing Nature Home and the Xerces Society's Attracting Native Pollinators. One caveat about the Oudolf book: he has used miscanthus in a lot of his designs, as one of our classmates noted and wants to discuss today.

Students gave me a Kindle a few years ago. I prefer paper books but do like the convenience of checking out library books even when snowed in--and the e-reader has really lightened my suitcase.

Hmmm....do you mean you can download books from the library onto your Kindle?! That is something I could get into.

You didn't know that dap? I browse library books on my computer. You can do a search by subject, author, key word, many options. In one minute I can load a book from my library to my kindle. You can also load the book on other devices or read it on your computer. Many options. My library also offers movies that you can borrow but I don't have a device or the software to do that. I love it. All free.
