Good morning! Hope you are all having a wonderfully lazy Sunday. Elle just went down for a morning cat-nap, I'm testing out a camo cake in the oven, and I figured I'd try to jot down a few words before we head out for a father's day lunch.
I'll keep today's post shortish. This week something happened that I absolutely did not foresee happening for quite some time. I purchased an e-reader. I feel dirty and traitorous just saying it. I'm an owner of an e-reader. *Shudders*
I'm not against e-readers--in fact I see more people reading now than I have in the past. They're incredibly convenient and light. They can store your entire library without the need for bookshelves. And well...they're cool. But I have so many books that I haven't read that I haven't felt the need for an e-reader.
What changed my mind? My coworker's daughter received one as a gift and she didn't want it. So I bought her Kindle (basic model) at a discount. I figured...why not?!
I immediately set out for the library website to see what I could download. Baby Signs! And then I checked out the public domain listings to see if I could download my book club pick for next month, House of Mirth. Check! While I don't think I'll be giving up my paper anytime soon, I am thinking that this little device will begin to change my bookish habits. But don't worry--I'm still all about the paper as I think about future generations!
And fun fact--Lisa got a Nook a few days before I got my Kindle. She made an awesome cover for her Nook and I hope to steal two hours (one day) to make my own.
Do you own an e-reader? Has it changed your bookish habits?
What do you have planned for today and this week?
