I received a phone call from a Maxine a few days ago passionately requesting that I return to the Clairemont Library's book club because numbers are dwindling and they're trying to keep it alive.
So I'm reading The Invisible Man. At first, I was skeptical and didn't think I'd enjoy it, but it's actually a very easy and pleasant read. The most significant thing about reading this book, though, is the way I'm reading it.
For the first time ever, I'm reading a book on my computer! (And no, I don't mean that I have an actual book propped up on my computer, hee hee.) And it's actually enjoyable!!
I don't have a Kindle or a Nook or an iPad or etc. (hint, hint for future birthday present.. ;) so I'm reading it on Blio which is a pretty cool e-reader for folks like me who haven't bought the latest technology yet. Blio is a free e-reader program that you can download and install onto your computer and its library of books, both free and non-free, is pretty extensive. The Invisible Man was a free download.
Here are a couple of (very poor quality... sorry!) screenshots:
I like how it simulates actual page-turning.
