I had resisted getting a Kindle even though my mom and sister had raved about them. What’s the big deal I thought? I love the feel of a book and have a library full of books on my shelves, many as yet unread. So when I retired and they gave me Kindle with a book light and cover I was grateful but wasn’t sure how it would work for me. Well, it goes to prove that there’s something to this new-fangled (okay not that new) technology. Now I wonder how I lived without it. I’ve always loved reading, though usually only found the time when on vacation. Within days of retiring, I packed up to escape Michigan and the Polar Vortex of 2014 and headed for my mom’s in sunny Ft Myers Florida. I took the Kindle so she could hook me up with her knowledge. The first book I downloaded, at her recommendation, was the Rosie Project. She was well into the book at that time and I quickly caught up and passed her. The story is unique, endearing characters and scenes so well crafted that you feel as are a part of it. There were parts that made me laugh aloud (don’t you love when a book can do that?) And parts that were poignant. As I neared the end, I slowed down, not wanting to part company with these characters. The book was originally slated as a screenplay. I can only hope that it will make it’s way to the big screen. This is the type of book I aspire to write and if you haven’t discovered the Rosie Project, please buy the book…..or download it to your Kindle!

It’s called the Rosie Effect! It’s on my list!
Thank you, I’m on it now. I heard a movie might be coming, fingers crossed!
