You just touch a tender spot in my heart, Xia... My mom still reads, but her mind and eye sight are beginning to fail and my dad stopped reading when the dementia got worse. He just watches tv now. I got my love of reading from them. Books were always a big part of our lives. I see this love of reading being passed on to my grandchildren and it warms my heart!Xia said:Kindle is 10 days old today and I would definitely buy again.
I just wish my parents could have had this amazing thing in their lives (Mom has passed and Dad has severe dementia). They were both avid readers and would have been thrilled with this technology. Actually makes me sad when I think about it as reading was such a huge part of my family life growing up and as a result I have a great emotional attachment to the very act of reading.
