Gardening Books

Posted: 14/09/2014 at 10:53

I have a kindle Fire, also a, lot of books. I have more gardening books than the local library. I prefer the feel of a real book especially for reference, but I have downloaded lots of books for my holiday, also a guide to the fishes of the east Indies. I just don't have the weight allowance for real books for holidays. Trouble is you darent leave a kindle on a sunbed while you fetch a drink. I think they're good for fiction, but no good for passing it on when you've read it.
