My MIL got a Kindle for Christmas, and she loves it. She is very much not tech-savvy, but she hasn't had any problems using it or getting new books for it. The one thing that bugged me about it when I was looking at hers was not being able to tell where in the book you were. Has anyone else felt that way, and if so, did you get over it?
When you start to cook, as when you begin to live, you think that the point is to improve the technique until you end up with something perfect, and that the reason you haven’t been able to break the cycle of desire and disillusion is that you haven’t yet mastered the rules. Then you grow up, and you learn that that’s the game.
