For me, one of the hardest things about being in Korea is all the excellent reading I feel I’m missing out on. Back at Hibriten, we were so lucky to have access to a great school library (and great school librarians), so I had almost anything I wanted to read for free. It was a luxury whose full value I did not realize until we moved here to Korea.
Obviously, two years’ worth of reading material is not one of those things you can justify packing in the two suitcases allotted for Trans-Pacific travel. Ric and I did what most expats do and sprung for e-readers (we chose Kindles), hoping they would provide a smaller, lighter way to meet our literary needs.
