For the past few years I have not bought any physical books. I simply downloaded them onto my Kindle. Not only was it much less expensive but it gave me a wider choice as Israeli bookstores don't have big English selections. I really liked my Kindle. It came with a case which opened like a book, giving me the real book feeling. It also had buttons on the side to flip pages. Then, a few days ago, it died. I decided to order a new one. The cheapest I could find was $79.99 (today it is on sale for $59.99). This price doesn't include the cover or the charger. As I suspect that my old charger is what killed by Kindle, I knew I would have to get a new one. I would also have to get a new case as none of the Kindles now being offered are the same size as my old one. The thing that turned me off about this particular Kindle is that it does not have buttons to flip pages. I don't like the idea of messing up my screen by touching it all the time. The next one was $119.99 (today, $99.99) but it has the same problems as the first one. I finally decided on the Kindle Voyage Bundle (which, today, is not being offered). The Voyage has buttons to flip pages. The Bundle included an adapter and a cover (but I don't think the cover is the kind that opens like a book). The price was $234.97 (plus shipping charges to Israel). When I chose it, Amazon said it could be mailed to Israel. When I went to order it, I was told that it could not be shipped here. In fact, none of the Kindles could be. Okay, I decided to have it mailed to a friend in Georgia who would re-ship it to me. I entered her address (I have sent her things from Amazon in the past) and Amazon told me that the address does not exist. I phoned them. They could not figure out why I could not have Kindles mailed to me. They could also not figure out what was wrong with her address. (She has Amazon Prime and gets stuff sent to that address all the time.) In the end, I sent her a GC for the Voyage Bundle, she ordered it, and it will arrive at her house on Wednesday. She will then have to go to her post office to re-ship it to me (I don't know how much it will cost but will send her the money by PayPal. I have no idea of how long this will take. The Post Office website says 6 to 10 business days, but that does not include how long it will sit in Israeli Customs before they decide to release it. Meanwhile, I bought a collection of leather-bound classic books which was on sale at a local store and am now reading them. Believe it or not, I am starting with Grimm's Complete Fairy Tales.
