Bookworm

Still reading a lot. The 'touch' Kindle is slightly heavier but I'm getting used to it.

I tried the text to speech but found it unsuitable because it did not have the actor's voice that makes listening a pleasure.
Must be a great boon to the blind though.

Fellow I knew in my salad days used to go regularly the the Canadian National Institute for the Blind to read out books and texts.
Now, any book at all can be heard at will.
I see from the CNIB website that "Classic Serbian Literature is coming soon to CNIB Library", so I guess the need is still there for foreign language readers.
