Gordon Raymond No baths. Eat snow. Don't wash anything. Easy solution. It will be warm in spring. Dig it deeper then.

Yeah, I know. But it's still funny.

Oooops!

60sRacer Well, Gordon, I like paper books too.

But when traveling, my new iPad Mini carries all 12 volumes of Audibon Bird ID books, the Bible, all ten current best sellers, and a dozen other books and references. It'll even read to ME if Im tired!

It also has 12 of the nations best newspapers that I can read daily, and a dozen of the technical journals i read. I get 200 of the latest daily funnies and all the crosswords I can tolerate. I can stream any football or basketball game in the country as well as any TV program I want. It has a dozen current movies.

I also carry all 500 of the CDs I own on my iPhone so I can listen to any of that. (Movies on the large 9 inch HD+ resolution screen of the iPad, music on the 128 GB iPhone).

It weighs 5 ounces and is the size as an open paperback except its only 5 mm thick. Uses the same charger as my phone. Reads just like a paperback too. With its built in WiFi and bluetooth I can load anything else I want, and listen to all of it with my wireless headphones that weigh 3 oz and have noise cancelling to keep the din of air flight at bay.

Oh, and it cost me only $49 with a coupon I had, and shares the data link with my iPhone so no extra charges.

Like you, I love books too, but there is much to be said for the latest technology too.

Gordon Raymond OMG! Worse than me!
I LIKE reading BOOKS. No computerized tablet for me. When I fall asleep reading, I wanna get wacked in the face with a REAL book.

Subtle A quick calculation comes up with some 130 feet of book shelving.

Subtle Sad, but not terribly sad. There are worse things.

Downsizing from my home after 27 years.

Book, books, books.

Some are old friends.

Got rid of 1/3 of them at the church sale in the fall.

The irony is that there is virtually no bid for most books these days.

Not that the bid matters other than to have them go into wanting hands.

One of the younger guys in our Alfa group will take some, and just talked to one of the few remaining book stores. They will take quite a few.

The "treasures" like Pomeroy's "The Grand Prix Car" will be kept.

james2000 Thanks for sharing Alex.
Sidecars seem to be making a comeback; especially for us old folks.
Best, James
