New Toy

26 Mar

I have to confess: I did the unthinkable. I year ago I would’ve bet my empty wallet I’d never do it. A month ago I would’ve told you, “Ain’t gonna happen. No way. No shape. No how.”

And yet here I am, committing the one crime I thought I’m not capable of. Owning an…iPad. Reading books in e-format. Downloading tons of books. Staying up all night, glued to the screen and read until not even toothpicks can help keeping my eyes open. For the past two weeks since I got the iPad, my sleeping habits have changed. I need more concealer to cover the dark circles under my eyes.

The moral of the story?

Never say never.

    Too funny! I am glad you are enjoying your new toy. I received a tablet for Christmas and love it.

      Amy, do you pack yours with books, too?
      My husband and I carpool and I find myself reading in the way back home from work…him being happy about that it’s a different story 😉

    Hi SC,
    Now that you confessed that have this little gadget, I have a confession to make too….. Do you remember when we talked about me winning the Kindle Fire? You said you didn’t want one because you like to hold the book in your hands and you were positive you wouldn’t pick up another physical book if you owned one? Since that day I was entering every contest I could find that offered an e-reader as the prize. If I won I was sending it to you..—
    Love ya, SC

    P.S. I still buy the physical books too.

      SC, you silly bird! Here I was trying to resit temptation and you worked behind my back to get me the temptation. I’d challenge you to see how many books you can read in a month on your Kindle, but then I know I’d lose it because you read far more than I do…How about we both go to Amazon and pick three books to download then see if we picked the same ones?
