I've just discovered I can download books from my library to my computer.
This means if I read about a good book on someone's blog, I can go to the library website, check the catalogue and if it is available as a download, I won't have to make a trip to the library.
in this awful summer heat, I quite enjoy the library which is nice and cool, but waiting around for the bus to get there and back isn't fun.
Plus I always get way more books than the one I wanted, which creates the problem of having to return them.
Most of the time the books are so good I want to keep them, a practice the library frowns upon.
So I start a to-buy list and hope I can find them in the shops here or on-line.
Less than half an hour ago, I read about Whispers, by Belva Plain. I recognised the author as one I've read before and liked the stories, so of course I want to read this one. Perhaps I can even email the file to friends? It might be a little large, perhaps my server won't allow it, but I could try.
It is an inside out look of an abused family who to the world are the perfect high society happy family.
