The boys laughed as Cindy, Derek’s crush from math class, fell to the ground in front of them.
Derek held out his hand to help her up.
He ignored his buddies' jests as he bought Cindy's ticket and escorted her inside.
Flash 55 is hosted by G-Man (Mr. Knowitall). The idea is to write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you’ve posted your 55. Thanks G-man for hosting.
Some additional Kindle notes:
The battery life is very long with a fairly short recharge period.
It is extremely portable, light and thin. Plus, I can carry three or four books without throwing out my back.
My husband got it for me because he thinks the number of books I have upstairs will cause the ceiling to fall in from the weight. :)
I do like the idea of saving trees.
I, too, am a book snob. There’s nothing like holding one and turning the pages, but this device allows me to continue to support my favorite authors (as an aspiring paid author, I like to buy the works of other writers) without taking up so much space. Very few people I know read [shocking] or read the same type of books I do [not so shocking] so book swapping isn’t an option. Plus, I have a hard time giving up a book once I’ve bought it.
And I can’t stress the ease with which I can read on the Kindle. It’s like using a large print book without the added weight. The adjustable text size is wonderful.
