I have over 500 compact discs I bought and collected in the years before I become sick and when I still worked full time. Along with reading again, I’ve been able to listen to music avidly again for the first time in years. Well, I’ve spent hours tonight ripping all my CDs into MP3s. I have about 100 left and I will be finished. I am slowly filling up that 2 Terabyte harddrive. It is going to be so neat today to listen to music I love and haven’t listened to in years.
I have a complicated matter to share with you all this morning. A conundrum of sorts. I am almost finished with reading Interview with the Vampire. Well, the library didn’t have the second book in the series, The Vampire Lestat. They said it was on loan to a patron. Well, I found an eBook copy online to read next. Is this legal? Am I breaking copyright law? I love reading eBooks on my computer. Google recently released over 500,000 classics and out of print books for download in eBook format. With my new huge monitor, reading on my computer is pleasant and a breeze. I settle in my comfy Lazy Boy, put my mouse in my lap to scroll, and lounge back to read.
I looked up The Vampire Lestat eBook on Amazon.com and it was $6.39. That was enough to make me delete it. I will just wait until is comes back to the library. I am so impatient though and so into this series right now. Patience young grasshopper! lol
