Did Anybody Notice?
Since I first selected my design settings at Medium my pages have, what I had hoped to be a beige/pinkish tinge with a basic black font. Sort of a basic combination that I hoped would not intrude or distract from the reading experience. Since whatever reading activity I have at the moment is negligible, although I keep hoping I will have more of a following as time goes by, I just selected a new background color more in keeping with the smoky banner that had appealed to me back when.

I’ve always been attracted to the colors purple and lilac. One of my favorite flowers is the iris.

Remember, I’m a little bit psychic. You are too.
Oh, the other good thing is that you don’t have to actually own a Kindle to read the Kindle books. You can get the free app for your phone or your computer. However, reading with a Kindle is nice. It’s nicer now because I have 2 of them. I kept losing the other one which was really frustrating. After it had been missing for a week I went ahead and bought a newer model.
