My new toy

I’m a failure. I admit it. The April A-Z challenge was too much for me to handle. It wasn’t enough that I had to blog every day, but I had to come up with a topic based on the alphabet, too. Can we say stress??? I know, hundreds of people took part in the challenge, and I’m sure most of them got through it unscathed. I couldn’t do it, and it even kept me away from my blog completely until now.

So, to make myself feel better, I shopped πŸ™‚ After months of waffling, I finally bought one. Yes, I’m now one of the Kindle generation. Originally I wanted the Kindle Fire, but when I found out the wi-fi thingie didn’t work in Canada, I decided to buy the Kindle Touch instead.

I’m still not sure it’s the right thing for me. I like being able to see how much I’ve read. I love the smell of the paper and ink. But most of all, I love the way a book feels in my hands, especially in those few minutes before I turn off the light at night.

But I’m open to giving this a try. What about you? Do you have an e-reader? What kind? Do you love it? Hate it?

  1. I never thought I’d be an e-reader fan but my husband got me Kindle for Christmas a few years ago. I immediately fell in love with it. This year, I upgraded to the Fire. It amazes me to think I went so many years without one! πŸ™‚

  2. You’re not a failure! That sounds too difficult for me to have kept up with too. As a matter of fact I haven’t been on my blog for a few days because my brain has decided it wants a break πŸ™‚

    I have a Kindle Fire and I absolutely love it! I never thought I would fall in love with reading on an e-reader but I have πŸ˜›

  3. I was stressed too, but I guess I kind of played it safe with the theme I choose, but I did get through it, and yeah it was stressful, I am glad it’s over πŸ™‚

    I myself have a NOOK, and I do love it, but as you said, I love the feel of books, I still buy them for that reason πŸ™‚
