I love to read books, but my purse is not big enough to take them everywhere. It wouldn't even hold an ereader if I happened to own one. I do have an iPhone, though. With the free Kindle and iBooks apps I can take books with me everywhere. I don't read new books on it. I like the feel of books and being able to look at my bookmark and see what fraction of the book I have read. I do like to reread the free classics on my iPhone. I have now read books by Alcott, Austin, Burnett, and Dickens while waiting at the doctor's office, drive thru, and hair salon.
