This is going to be an odd little post. It’s already 7:30pm and I really should just skip this all together except that I didn’t post last Sunday.
I did finally join NetGalley and I’m in the midst of reading A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park. I had hoped I could download it to my Nook but the particular Adobe product they’ve adapted, the Adobe Digital Editions, only works on the Sony eReader or a PC. I really like the features on the Kindle and want to read on that, however there are a few details from the Adobe Digital Editions that I’d like to merge to the Kindle. I particularly like how it bookmarks. I think technology is spoiling me enough to think I should be able to have my preferences identified for these tools and have the ideal product I want available for me but even to me that sounds spoiled. What happened to making due?
