It’s not the first time I bit off more than I could chew or got enthusiastic about a revolutionary idea that didn’t work. It turns out that neither Kindle nor Nook is designed to be a web browser. Duh. I should have known that, but since a lot of my e-book reading has been on my laptop, the fact was not obvious to me. A laptop IS a good web browser.
I’ve been reading e-books for ages—on my laptop, on my phone, on the new Nook my husband got me for our anniversary. I have long anticipated that someday my own books would be available digitally. A major advantage is the lack of warehousing and shipping costs. An e-book can be accessed almost as easily in Africa as in Atlanta. Since there are no extra publishing costs, the author can set a price that makes the book accessible to the most readers.
When in the course of human events we come to the end of our resources and recognize that we are unable to solve the world’s problems on our own, it becomes necessary to dissolve the illusions that have connected us to our false hopes in armaments and political platforms, in education and government programs, and to assume among the powers of the earth the humble and repentant station to which Nature and Nature’s God has called us.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men and women are equally sinners who have fallen short of the glory of God.
