I put several titles on hold through the library’s e-books awhile back, but due to my utter lack of interest in checking my email on a semi-regular basis I missed the requests that I had placed. I clicked on a few more and waited. At the time I did not own my Kindle, having nothing but a vague notion that I would buy one at some point yet not wishing to be confined to the Kindle PC app. Now I have a Kindle and the possibilities are interesting. I had requested titles with EPUB formats because my Alura-tek supports them and those files do not require much space, playing to my desire not to have to move some of my books from the e-reader’s hard drive to the PC.
One of the books that I had previously requested but missed checking out was The Postmistress. There has been interest in this title ever since it was first released. I almost bought a copy when Borders was having its liquidation sales, but I was having one of those moments of willpower when I told myself that I didn’t need to buy any more books that I hadn’t already read and could get them through the library. This book was available as an EPUB and Kindle file, so with the option of selecting which version I wanted I clicked on the Kindle option that took me to the Amazon page. It could only be downloaded through USB, but my Kindle needed a bit of a charge after my time reading Loki and the killer unicorns short story “Errant” anyway.
It’s a painless procedure. Much better than when I first encountered the e-books through the library option a few years back. They had their own e-book app for the computer and it seemed a pain to download that and the books. E-readers are much nicer.
I would dive into The Postmistress right away, but I want to finish my current read about the sociology of women in the movies. I hope to have it done within the next couple of days with any luck. And by luck I mean not getting distracted by things like Tom Hiddleston or Supernatural.
