Michelle held up her birthday gift. "Um, this isn't a book."

Nenene smiled. "It's a Kindle. You can use it to download electronic books. That one there will hold about…"

"That's the last we'll see of her for awhile," Anita quipped.

"The entire British Library?" screeched Nenene.

Maggie shook her head. "I think you need to stick to paper, Sis."
