Smashwords and ebooks

Posted on Thursday, May 22, 2014 in Literature

For a number of reasons, I haven’t had anything to read for weeks. One is that something seems to be wrong with all my library card numbers (and my sister’s and my mom’s). When I try to download an ebook, I get an error message, saying the number is wrong – and I know for a fact that none of them are. At the moment, I can’t afford to buy any new ones either. I prefer not to borrow any physical copies anymore.  One reason is that once when I was about ten, I returned a school library book and the teacher who worked as a librarian (but most likely wasn’t) tossed that particular book into a basket to mend it and forgot about it. Then I was told I hadn’t returned the book and that if I didn’t I’d have to pay for it. In the end the book was found, but since then I’ve never really liked to check out printed books.

Then my Kindle Touch was updated (Amazon never or warned me beforehand so I wasn’t prepared for it), which was taking an extremely long time. Anyway, to finally get to the point, I have now downloaded several books from Smashwords and will start reading on both my ereaders (I also have a Cybook Odyssey). I’ll even read a few Wattpad stories on my old iPod Touch, but I must say that the first story doesn’t seem to be very good.
