The Kindle

I've had my nose stuck in a book ever since I learnt how to read. Come to think of it, even before that. I've always loved the anticipation of opening up a brand new book, feeling the crisp paper against my fingertips and the smell of it.
So when I first heard of the Kindle I thought nothing of it. No way would I ever change my way of reading a book. I'd rather feel the pages and heaviness of the books I was reading than electronically turn the pages on a machine.
That is until this summer. For years now, every time we go away someplace I've been lugging 3-4 books in my suitcase. This summer a very nice lady, ("bookworm" like myself) introduced me to the Kindle and I got hooked. So I got one. And haven't looked back since. 
Love it! 
At the moment I am reading the latest book in the "True Blood" series by Charlaine Harris which is way better than the TV series.

  1. Tom is hoping Santa will bring him one for Christmas. Only thing he hasn't been a good boy, so don't like his chances.
