I have a Kindle!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My pleading and begging finally worked, and I now have a new little electronic buddy whom I happily run home to every evening. Or maybe not every evening, but you know what I mean. She’s beautiful (this iPhone photo doesn’t do her justice) – I’ll definitely have to update with a new picture once her sophisticated hot pink leather case arrives. I’m extra-excited for my rendezvous in Chicago this weekend as plane time = Kindle time! No longer will I have to lug multiple ARCs with me to leave in the airport as I finish; all manuscripts are secure in my little 10oz device!
Now I am still, and like to think always will be, a faithful reader of the physical book. I plan to use my Kindle primarily as a single-handed attempt to save forests, since I’ll no longer be printing out 400+ page manuscripts that kill my shoulder on the trek home. It will also be my travel companion and gives me motivation to start saving for a trip to Europe! I haven’t bought my first ebook yet, though I did download the free sample of CHELSEA CHELSEA BANG BANG (you all know about my girl crush on Chelsea Handler) and am sorely tempted.
