Kindle


The words above say (in case it is as illegible as it looks to me right now), "Amazon is excited to introduce Kindle -- a wireless, portable reading device with instant access to more than 100,00 books, blogs, newspapers, and magazines. Whether you're in bed or on the train, Kindle lets you think of a book and get it in less than a minute." And it only costs $399.
I don't know about you, but I like to hold an actual book in my hand when I'm reading it. I like books; I like to own them. I would not want to deprive of myself of this pleasure by purchasing a Kindle especially at the cost of $399. What about you? Where are we coming to in this world when books are going out of style?

I agree with you... especially when I think of how much easier books are on our eyes than the screens. That said, I can see the other side of things too. As much as we love books and information, etc, we are out of space! And I mean out of space... We are truly squeezing this little girl and all her stuff in on top of a already full home. I don't think it's that we have too much stuff either (well... obviously we do for the space we have). We are simply a 4 person family (or will be very soon) who runs a business from our little home.

Hey, speaking of books... I have one here for you! I'm naming you my official winner of the button contest. I'm not going to make a huge deal of it on my site since you are the only one who got the button up in the allotted time. I hope you don't mind. Email me your info though and I'll send it to you. Looks like such a fun book. I'm sure you and Sarah Beth will have tons of fun!
