My shame now in check, head held low, I now announce the arrival of my new Kindle.
With a wi-fi connection this sucker is fast. Surprised the heck out of me. I used it yesterday while I waited for Little Bit to eat her breakfast. It downloaded a novel in seconds. Easy to read, simple instructions.
It will never replace my beloved traditional books, but I must admit with this mini-depression, and with my tight fisted spending habits, a two dollar downloaded novel makes since to me. Highly recommended.
