I am over the moon because I got an Ipad for Christmas from my brother!!! everyone says I will become a freak now using this and am thinking I am going to agree with them!!!!
Technology of this kind is new to me so its a learning curve still - but learn I will!!!! Downloaded a very small book yesterday from Amazon which was free and read it too.
Today I went to another site (recommended by The Novel Life) called Forgotton Books and my excerpt comes from one of those books. After a period of around five years, I find that I have no new books in the house to read - either my own or borrowed and that has left me feeling slightly disconcerted. Now I have access to books again!
Lady Penrith was again missing at afternoon tea and again John Coverdale looked around the drawing room with a countenance expressive of blank disappointment. He had not been with the shooters who had just returned and who were having a substantial egg and toast tea in the breakfast room. He came to the drawing room after a long afternoon reading in the almost unused library - a spacious apartment which had once been an armoury and in which three great carved book cases filled with eighteen century literature books which nobody ever looked at represented culture at Killander Castle.
Taken from the book Thou Art the Man - a novel by M E Braddon first published in 1894.
