I was against the eBook thing at first and still haven’t read a full book on a tablet or phone. That said, I am absolutely enthralled with reading comic books or graphic novels on my iPad Air. I was hesitant to lug around my expense new Air till I got the Snugg case. And this case makes it perfect for watching videos whilst in bed. It’s sturdy, but light weight and still stylish. The strap makes it much easier to multitask, too. You can’t beat it for the cost. Wish I waited before trying a more expensive case that had less features. I love being able to prop up the iPad in horizontal, vertical or a lower typing height. I have not taken my iPad Air out of the Snugg since I got it. So don’t be surprised if I start reading my book club picks on the iPad and working my shows with a mic in one hand and the Snugg strapped iPad Air in the other.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Book swapping or book exchange is the practice of a swap of books between one person and another. Practiced among book groups, friends and colleagues at work, it provides an inexpensive way for people to exchange books, find out about new books and obtain a new book to read without having to pay. Because swaps occur between individuals, without central distribution or warehousing, and without the copyright owner making a profit, the practice has been compared to peer-to-peer (P2P) systems such as BitTorrent – except that hard-copy original analog objects are exchanged.
Sounds good. Let’s bring books to swap to all our December meetings. I’ll have at least 5 trades at each show. Impress me by bringing Thousand Autumns by David Mitchell or others on my wish list.
I’ll think we’ll bring our books up to the stage during the pre-show social happy hour and leave with new books.
Should be fun and free. Thanks.
