Items I Can’t Live Without

Welcome to week 24. Be sure to check out the other authors of the MFRW 52 Week Blog Hop.  This week’s topic took a little bit of thought.  What items can’t I live without?  The books on my Kindle.

Before the invention of the Kindle or e-reader, I carried multiple books with me whenever I traveled. Hardbacks and paperbacks, they rode in their own tote bag. My arms and back would throb transporting my loaded down luggage, tote and my purse from the house to the car and then from the car to the luggage cart once we got to our destination. But it was a labor of love because I couldn’t go on vacation without my books.  Now, years later, my books are contained on my Kindle and my baggage is pounds lighter which the aching arms and back are grateful for. The e-reader/Kindle allowed me to visit other time periods and worlds while we made our way to our seasonal destination.
