Hmmm….I’m well past the age where I can glom on to Sesame Street, but today’s news still brings a huge smile to my face. I love ebooks. The more they catch on, the more readily available devices will become (i.e., less expensive too). Getting children hooked on e-reading makes sense. Someday I may even let my kids use my KINDLE — oops that won’t happen anytime soon.
My ‘to do’ list keeps growing. I have yet to purchase a single Christmas gift. Not one. Nada. Normally I’d be three quarters done by this point in December. YIKES. Sadly, I’m not in the mood. I can’t even bring myself to buy cards. This doesn’t bode well for my nearest and dearest. Illness in the family makes this an emotionally shaky holiday for me. I’ll be the nut running around on the 24th buying anything that’s been tossed aside by other shoppers 🙂
