A Little Light

I am sporting a new Kindle. It is amazing! Sorry for the product placement, however, the fact that I now have hundreds, (no thousands, no MILLIONS) of books at my fingertips at any given second, makes me a little excited.

The possibilities are now endless:
  • Not only can I read three books at one time, I can have the three books with me at all times (or 10 or 20).
  • There are hundreds of free books available electronically. Books I may never have thought about buying before, well, they are free! (Yes, I could have gone to the library, but now, I don't have to leave the house!)
  • Word on the street- I can get books from libraries ! (I don't know if it's true, or easy or practical. But the thought is great!)
  • I have always wanted to be able to read ALL of the Nancy Drew books. NOW, I can. And, I don't have to worry about storage!
  • I've just over used the exclamation point way too many times! That's how excited I (still) am!
  • Don't you worry though, I haven't lost my love of a bookstore, and the way the pages smell, especially when they are brand new.

Few other notes:

January is moving along.
  • There's been a trip to Wicked (Broadway in Chicago!)
  • Completing a school term
  • Got a cold, fought a cold (and won!)
  • Did a few "crafty" projects
  • In the middle of reorganizing my kitchen
  • I may have just taken out the trash (ugh, trash) wearing brown boots, an oversized shirt from the Caribbean, my favorite red coat, and cropped pants. These pants, I realized tonight, are probably supposed to end at the bottom of the knee. Some days, however, (like today) I am challenged height wise, and the pants are more closer to my ankle.
  • I have these brown boots. They are too big (I didn't quite realize when I bought them), but they are so warm. My life is different now.
  • And, Blanche is growing. However, about Blanche, does anyone have any ideas about how to keep her warm. She's by the door which is colder of course, but it's where she can be by the light.
Alright world. I think I'm off to read.....um. Sleep. Yes, off to sleep.

Love to all,

do you get to keep the books you download on your Kindle? How does that work?

Yes, you can keep the books that you download. FOREVER. It's wonderful!
