It was a bright, defrosted, pussy-willow day at the onset of spring, and the newlyweds were driving cross-country in a large roast turkey.
When my long-preordered first-generation Kindle finally arrived in 2007, it seemed like magic. One of the first books I bought for it was ”Skinny Legs and All”, which was my first Tom Robbins novel.
That first Kindle was weird and funky and not for everyone. Much like Tom Robbin’s novels, in a way, but I loved them both.
I’ve upgraded to the latest Kindle several times since that goofy original edition. The newest, “Oasis”, is a great reading device. I’ve already read and enjoyed every Tom Robbins novel. None though, neither Kindles nor Robbins, were quite as delightful and surprising as the first.
