An Honest Review of the Kindle Oasis

On the fence about buying the new Kindle Oasis? I’ve been testing it out, and I’m here with an honest pro/con list so you can make the best decision for your reading habits. Just want the down and dirty? Scroll to the end! The E-reader Debate Like many other diehard (read “older“) readers, I was late to the e-reader game. It seemed a betrayal, a blatant thumbing the nose to my closest friends since childhood. How could I depart from my beloved paper books? The texture, the weight, the smell… especially the smell.

Greetings from Budapest! My husband and I are thrilled to be here for two whole weeks on holiday. Let me tell you– Budapest is a mecca for two of my favorite things: books and coffee. Very shortly, I’ll be telling you all about it in a literary tour of the city. For the moment, here’s a little detour. A few nights into our stay, I was on the Metro by myself. Being the savvy traveler that I am, I only had a small cross-body bag with me to deter any potential Dodgers. The downside of this is that it...
