Favourite writers I wish I could emulate would be Jake Needham or Michael Arditti. But as you know I'm never going to write anything that brilliant, But I read them on my kindle and they don't hurt either my eyes or my poor ancient hands. With serious eye problems I'm always rabbiting on about ebooks because I can enlarge the print and read - have you ever felt the weight of a large print book? If you have to depend upon large print look to Kindle! Buy a kindle for your MUM!
