Better Living Through Electronics

This morning I woke up with a sore throat that is obviously the beginning of a cold. I'm afraid the timing indicates that I picked it up at the VNSA book sale this weekend. Someone must have fondled a book with germy hands shortly before I touched it myself.

As a result, I'm considering an unexpected advantage of owning an e-reader. Buying or borrowing e-books via download may accidentally infect my computer with a virus, but I won't have to worry about catching one myself.

Excuse me, I need to go buy myself some more tissues.
