  1. Thank you for the list. I ordered the Fintie Vintage Book Cover for my Paperwrite and love it. The one I had on the Kindle was falling apart. Like it so much purchased one for my new Fire HD 10, waiting for it to arrive. Love your books that I have read so far and looking forward to reading the rest. Keep up the good work.

  2. I like number 17 best. I can appreciate that one. I once started reading a new book on the commuter train home. I should have got off the train at the last stop. I was so involved in the story I ended up back downtown at Union Station Longest train ride home ever

  3. 5, 15, 17, & 19, are the ones I like the most, especially the bookend. Thanks for sharing these.

  4. I particularly love 1 ( my Kindle is about 6 years old and has recently started changing pages on its own accord and showing only half a screen, 2, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 & 15.

    Lovely ideas.
