Life Begins Today!

MENTAL STATUS: "Excited". Got an early Christmas gift!

Yes, I finally got the SONY electronic reader.

Three great things about this are:

1) It was free (Yes, FREE)

2) It's an early Christmas gift to myself

3) I can finally read all those e-books stashed in no man's land on my PC.

How did I get a free e-reader? Well, instead of those points you earn for frequent flyer miles, I cashed them in on electronic stuff instead. So... I ordered the hubby a gift (which I can't say in case he sees this), a HP Photosmart printer for my mom's computer ( a Christmas gift for her), and an e-reader for myself.

Sweet, huh?

I'm so glad I won't have to clutter up the house any more with all the books I love to read. Now they'll all be neatly piled into this sleek little handheld device. Ahhh... it's liberating!

Do you have an e-reader?

That's great! I want a Kindle SO bad, but right now it's not on my short list.

This snow shower is so calming ...

That's wonderful, Jennifer. I hate reading ebooks on my laptop but love to order them and get them instantly. Enjoy your reading!

And you did good getting free stuff.

Oh, pretty cool. So, you hold it in your hand? Let us know how it works. I have trouble imagining life without my paper books. :-) I'm interested to see if the reading experience is the same with these e-readers.

I'm so behind on the times, (I just got an ipod back in October), so an e-reader probably won't come for another 10 years...or more.

But it looks really cool!

And, Stephanie? I don't even have a iPod! LOL...

Ooh, I'm jealous. That looks so pretty. We can't get them easily over here in NZ.
