I call it paper nostalgia. In the same way my mum feels about Green Shield Stamps, some people speak about the traditional book. They say they like the feel of paper in their hands when they read but as nice as that is, I’m running out of room to put all of my books which is why I was so pleased to buy my Kindle last year. For me it is the ultimate space saver. I was told by a friend the other day that three million Kindles were bought prior to the Christmas period, so a lot of other people agree with me.
Look back on the Green Shield Stamp with affection but modern technology ain’t so bad.
If you got a Kindle for Christmas then you might like to download one or two of my stories. I don’t think Amazon accept Green Shield Stamps so you may have to use modern technology to pay for them, but at least they're less than the price of a 70s colour TV.
