After the dust had settled....

So, after all the craziness, otherwise known as Christmas, I got a chance to sit down with my gift. Just 1 gift you say? Well, yeah, that's all I got but I assure you, it was intentional. Not only do I find it completely unnecessary to have a boat-load of gifts, the truth is...I only asked for one thing & surprisingly, I got it! Behold.....the Kindle! ( cue the magical music! )

Alright, so for those few that have no idea what this little gadget is, let me explain. It is an electronic book lamens terms, it's an IPod for books.
Books, magazines, newspapers, even blogs can be read on it. You can purchase books from online & in 60 seconds, BING, you've got the entire book on your Kindle. You can even do direct ordering and downloading straight from the Kindle itself. It even has voice over, if you are lazy or just like to be read to, you have that option. I tell ya, it's pure genius. Here's the best part, it holds 1,500 books AND most of the books are cheaper in Kindle form, and the damn thing only weight 10 ounces!! For those of you who know me well, you know that I am an avid reader. I kill a book every 2-3 days. So this was almost a must-have with me, and I've wanted one for over a year. Now, not only can I carry it anywhere(have you ever tried walking around with 768-page Breaking Dawn? I rest my case.) and chose from any selection of books that you may have, but you also don't have to worry about where to store yet another book. My poor bookcases, they are busting at the seems, I think I can actually hear them sighing in relief. So, for any of you who are regular readers, I HIGHLY recommend you pick up one of these bad boys. It'll set you back about $300. depending on which type you get, but trust me, IT IS WELL WORTH IT!!
