Late to the party

I am what technically savvy people call a late adopter of any popular gadget or gizmo. I waited until Apple came out with the iPhone 4S to decide that maybe an iPhone would be an ok thing for me to own. (It's extremely useful by the way. I'm even typing this post on it.)

So as an avid reader and card carrying library patron, it took me a while to warm up to the idea of ereaders. Nook, Kindle, etc. didn't really tempt me. Then I ran out of reading materials before my return flight from a business trip and succumbed to the temptation of purchasing an overpriced book at the airport.
Don't worry friends because the happy ending to this story is that I received my very own Kindle paper white and I will never have to buy a book at the airport again. All my wonderful husband's birthday presents to me this year were books-a new thinline Bible, The Complete Works of (none other than) Shakespeare, a decoratively bound Bronte sisters collection, and the Kindle.
So far my cheapskate heart is glowing because I have uploaded dozens of books, free samples, and even some games without spending a penny. I will enjoy reading free samples and then adding the books I find interesting to my library hold list.
And when we travel for the holidays, look out, because I will be showing up at your house with a suitcase less the weight of 2-3 books and my Kindle in hand. Happy reading!
