Thumbs up G'day all!


I have recently retired and reading is a big part of my life. Ebooks seem like an effective way to go for portability and cost. I look forward to getting started real soon.

Cheers

I've only tried reading wombats once - the opening was a bit hairy, the middle was quite bloated, and the ending just stank.

It was delightfully ambiguous...but "whopperjawed" is such a phantasmagorical word, that from now on it's the word I'm going to use instead of "ambiguous".

This wombat has its burrow in Ocean Grove, Victoria, Australia. I am in fact a sea side wombat.
I will be buying a reader very soon and it will be a Cybook Gen 3 because it has the most votes for a general purpose does it all well reader.
I will be reading on it Michael Chabon, Nelson Demille, Stephen King, Vikram Seth, Cormac mcCarthy, James Ellroy and so on....

Winters down here are quite cool so the burrow needs to be well stocked with all manner of stuff.
