Handmaids tale by Margaret Atwood
Islandsportivo : I see you're newish to TCS. Welcome.Handmaids tale by Margaret Atwood
That sounds good, so I just put the e-book on hold at my library. There's a lot of people waiting for it, though, so I won't get it for a while.I just finished The Last House On Needless Street by Catriona Ward. So many twists and turns. It was good but also a bit dark. I loved the chapters of Olivia's (the cat) point of view, of course.
After you posted about reading it, I checked all three libraries to which I have access to digital books. NONE of them has it! Boo. But I’ve put a “recommended” at each so maybe one of them will get it.For those of you who have become hooked on the Miss Fortune series, this one does NOT disappoint! I've been either giggling or LOLing my way through the whole thing. I think, just after the first of the year, I may have to go back and re-read ALL of them!
With an actual e-reader, not a tablet, phone or laptop, the lighting is more adjustable, and they have non-glare screens. I know lots of people still love the feel of a real book, but once I got my e-reader, I never looked back.Being online keeps me awake! I am too old to adapt... lol... Too bright I think. Always loved reading myself to sleep late at night, all curled up and snug... Happy days
I just want to agree with this. There was a time when I said I would never read anything but "real" books. Now I have several Kindles loaded with books and rarely read paper books anymore. I get most of the e-books free, so if I don't like it I don't feel like I have to keep reading it.They're not the same as real books, but e-books are so so so convenient, so if you love to read, don't give up on e-books without giving them another chance.
Welcome to our reading thread, btw. And to the entire TCS site, of course.
Yes, you can put it in night mode and the screen darkens. You can pick how dark. You can also read with the lights off, which is a great feature that I love.With an actual e-reader, not a tablet, phone or laptop, the lighting is more adjustable, and they have non-glare screens.
