Don't leave home without it!

Nothing to do but relax today - it's been raining off and on all morning. The last few days Sara and I have been hunting for furniture. Most of the stuff in the shops is poor quality - worse than last year when we were looking. Some of the shops have the very same furniture as last year. We think we've found something, but we'll have to go back and look at it again before we make the final decision.

I finished the book 'A Reliable Wife' by Robert Goolrick - Washington Post review: Here - I read online that it's going to be made into a movie. I hope they do it justice - it's gonna be HOT - and I wonder who will play the role of Antonio? Now I'm on to a much tamer story: 'Plain Truth' by Jodi Picoult. If anyone plans on living in Libya for any length of time and they like to read, don't come here without an e-reader! 


  1. Are e-readers available for sale to be shipped to Libya? I checked this morning to see if I could buy one in Turkey from Amazon but I couldn't. Is it censorship or could it be there is just not enough of a market in those two countries?

  2. I have a Sony Reader that I got from the States. Recently I bought a Samsung Galaxy Tab in Libya that has a fantastic reader on it (and telephone and internet too).

  3. I will investigate your devices as well. Jeff Bezos from Amazon makes a compelling case that the Kindle has been designed to put the reading experience above all else and is lighter and more readable because of it.

    He also says that we will live in a multi-device world, which is not what I really want. I'm not a gadget girl so the less the better. Thanks for suggesting other models for me to investigate.
