New Love

Shhh, don't tell the Cute Guy, but I've fallen in love.

Oh, Kindle, How I Love Thee

Let me count the ways...
  • I have books downloaded in less than a minute

  • Surprisingly I read so much faster on you (I think there should be a study down on why people claim to read faster on the Kindle. I didn't buy it at first, but after reading a couple of books on it. "I'm a Believer")

  • You save me money. Well, you would, if I hadn't started reading so fast and am flying through books.

  • You give me free books. And not just the classics.

  • You fit in my purse and I can read whatever I feel like depending on my mood and don't have to have planned in advance what I'd feel like reading.

  • I can accessorize you! I know, I'm so girly, but what's not to love about having cute covers and skins to protect your Kindle.

  • I can email myself pdf's of my knitting patterns. Yes, you can actually store my knitting patterns, so they don't have to get all crumpled and spotted with chocolate. Yes, I do eat chocolate when I knit, do you have a problem with that? (Oh, apparently my ever growing backside has a problem with that, but I'm going to continue to ignore it)

I've also been knitting away on the Tapestry Cowl that I'm knitting for a class I'm teaching next month. I'm halfway. I'm really enjoying it, but am finding I like one side more than the other. Which is your favorite?

Okay, I still love the Cute Guy. Especially when he takes our cute girl to the Sweetheart Daddy/Daughter Dance.

I guess I'm just full of love!

I can't wait to own a kindle--it's on my list!
I like the brown with aqua design side (2nd pic)

I've been intrigued by the good to hear why you like it so much. I love paper though...I think I might miss turning pages....maybe not. Your husband and daughter make an adorable couple. Can't wait to see your cowl!

I've been thinking about a Kindle too...Not sure though. Like "stitching under oaks" said I love paper too.

That picture of Cute Guy and Cute girl is so darn sweet. I can't wait for Kira and Chris to go a dance together.

Love the cowl!!!!! I loved knitting mine and actually wear it quite often. I think I like the Brown with aqua side best.
