I decided to pay the horrific price for my Kindle because I was going to be going on family vacation to Cancun and wanted something that I could read but didn't want to pack an actual book (or books as it would have turned out!). Books to me are like clothes. What I want to read depends on how I am feeling at the moment. ha-ha Anyway, I have found myself not able to leave the Kindle anywhere. I have to have it with me at all times. It is so thin that it fits right into my purse. I find myself reading when I'm at the Dr's office, waiting in traffic because of a wreck or even in the - AHEM - potty room. Yes ma'm!! :-)
I have always wanted to be a devoted reader but, never felt like reading much. I would feel more guilty sitting and reading for hours than I would sitting and watching TV for hours. I did mention in a previous post that I am a TV addict! Anyway, I thought this would be the answer to that and I could read in small snippets all day long. It has actually been wonderful!
Like I mentioned before, I wanted the Kindle so I could read while sitting on the beach! Wouldn't you know I did not take the Kindle out ONE TIME while I was on vacation. I just couldn't pull myself to do much of anything but lay on the beach with my eyes closed, listening to the waves - and of course the occasional "MOM" that would come from somewhere. Maybe I was dreaming?? Anyway, I felt kind of bad for not reading it. I did get to enjoy reading my Kindle in the Houston Int'l Airport. We had 4 hour layovers there and it occupied some of my time.
For those of you who do not know what the Kindle is, please click here to read all about it! It stores so many books. You can get your newspapers delivered to it and several magazines are on board also. It gives you wi-fi access to download books at any time and the books are a fraction of the price you would pay in stores. It has the ability to let you send and receive emails. WOW! It's just quite the machine! It will read to you also...if you can stand the monotone voices (you can choose male or female). I was so excited about my Kindle that when I got it, I immediately went to show my boss. She wound up buying TWO of them immediately.
Well, just wanted to post something about my life and what I enjoy. I'm trying to come up with some great topics to talk about but, I'm only realizing that I lead a pretty dull life. Nothing like my friend over at Girly Muse (WOAH!!). She always has the greatest things to blog about...I think I might be a little jealous (don't tell her..). I love you Lori! I enjoy your posts a LOT! I dare you to go read those posts and not laugh your booty (sorry Lori) off!!
Anyway, I'm trying to get creative & maybe even gain a few more readers?? Don't know how my bloggy friends are accomplishing that! I get a thrill when I get comments from the three of you that actually follow me!
Hope all is well in your world! Till another time!
