Making a Change

I’ve had a Kindle for several years, well, two of them. This is the second one. I’ve fallen out of love with anything Amazon in the past couple of years and I’ve been looking for something else in the way of an e-reader.

I was on Bongino’s Locals site and someone mentioned they were looking for something to replace their Kindle and another person responded by mentioning they had switched to Kobo. I wasn’t familiar with that so I did some checking online and decided that I liked their Libra 2 reader.

I thought about it for awhile and went ahead and ordered one with a cover. It’s quite a bit more money than I wanted to spend, but it has 32 gb of storage. I believe this is more what I wanted than the Kindle anyway. I can’t transfer my downloads off the Kindle to the Kobo reader, but I can start fresh and I’ll be able to keep my PDF knitting patterns on it so that is a plus.

I don’t play games or shop online or anything else on my Kindle. I don’t need it to read my email. I just want to read or listen to audio books and I think that the Kobo Libra 2 will be perfect for me. And I can download my Mitch Rapp novels from Kobo if I like.

It’s been awhile since I listened to any of my audio books on my Kindle. I used to do that a lot while knitting instead of having the TV on. I’m looking forward to getting back to reading, although I am still reading a hardback copy of Allen West’s book “Hold Texas, Hold the Nation” that I need to finish. I think Brad bought it at Books A Million a few months ago.

I checked into Books A Million to see if they had an e-reader. You can purchase e-books thru them but you use Google Play and I believe that is for use on an android phone, which I don’t own. Anyway, I am trying to get away from Google as well.

It’s nearly midnight. The day got away from me, somewhat. It’s time to head off to bed and I might just read a bit before turning out the lamp…

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
