I read most anything except SciFi and mysteries. I have read Patricia Cornwell, Kathryn Wall, and Diana Mott Davidson which are mysteries but it's not a big genre for me.

I really like Kathryn Wall, I'm ok with Patricia Cornwell but Diana Mott Davidson I have a hard time getting through .
I tend to like cozy mysteries, and I can't get through hers. The only one of hers I bought I finally skipped to the last couple of chapters to find out the ending and then tossed it.

It's funny because I like the first one of Davidson's books but haven't enjoyed any of the others. I've read 9 of them so I've definitely tried to like them but they take me forever to get through.

The regular Fire not the HD right?


On mine if I click on settings there is a text to speech feature that I can turn on and it will read the book to me. Mine is the second generation one so I'm not sure if that makes a difference or not.

Maybe listening to them would be better because reading them for me is like pulling fingernails out.

Well shoot! That is the reason I told hubby I wanted the fire over the paperwhite one. Then I can listen to the books while I'm sewing or whatever if I want.

g'evening fs card is done... dinner is cooking got some stuff cleaned up.

Janice, I dont know if this will help but, if you guys want to listen to books... they come on CD's and you can load them to Itunes and then listen to them while you craft too.
( I do it through an ipod though in an docking station because, its easier to move around than wearing the headphones for me)

Evening

Got the GS cookie order submitted, GS schedule submitted, got some laundry done, got a few cards made, got some returns made, somewhat productive day.

Now sitting by the tree, lights on feet up, kids in bed, wishing I had some wine.

I was just reading back a bit about the audio kindle...I'm guessing my Nook does not have that option either. It would have been great though.
