For over a decade the Kindle has made book reading and electronic programs accessible to children and adults alike. Frisco may have the oldest Kindle user, a kind lady of 93 years who has seen the world change from horse-and-buggy to radio, telephone, automobiles, air travel and now wireless communication.
Yvonne, a Frisco resident who recently celebrated her 93rd birthday, grew up in rural Oklahoma during the Depression. In those days she devoted herself to hard work and her school work. She had very little time to read books for relaxation. In her younger adult years, she moved to Amarillo and began work in a radio station. In her childhood she had seen the introduction of cars and the crank telephone. In Amarillo she witnessed the power of radio. She watched as her husband went to war in Europe, far away, during World War II. She had children and ultimately spent her time caring for her family. Then as a widow, children grown and with plenty of time to relax, Yvonne has developed an interest in paperback novels. For the last twenty five years she has been an avid reader, and has interests in historical books as well as romantic novels. With such an appetite for novels, she has been a regular customer of used book stores, shopping for books about once a month.
