My folks didn't get a television until I was a teenager; so I did not grow up watching Saturday morning cartoons like most kids did. I read books. I liked reading books. I started out with Roy Rogers comic books, and progressed to the Walter Farley Black Stallion series. After that came science fiction, Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, any kind of sci-fi novel was fine. Even after we got a television, I preferred to read a book, and very seldom watched tv except for a few favorite programs , westerns of course. If there wasn't a horse, I didn't watch it. Now, I either read on the ipad or on my Kindle. The Kindle is very lightweight and a perfect size for me to hold and read a book. The ipad was fine until I got the external keyboard, and then it became a lot heavier, and doesn't turn as easily as it did without the keyboard. So I use it if I am reading something where I need to see pictures, since it is larger than the Kindle, and the Kindle is perfect for taking along in my purse if we are going somewhere that I will want to sit and read a book.
