So… did you guess my Mother’s Day gift? I DID! It actually arrived on Tuesday last week, and as soon as I saw the box from Amazon, I had an idea of what was inside. On Thursday night, I started asking questions and Ryan said, “Ok. If you can guess what it is, then I’ll let you open it early.”
I said, “I think it’s a Kindle…”
And his face said it all. I was right.
I’ve been interested in getting a Kindle for a couple of years because I LOVE to read and I am usually lugging around a ton of books, so I was super excited to finally own one!
I bought my first book on Friday: Heart of the Matter by Emily Giffen. She is one of my favorite authors. She writes what I guess would be considered “chick lit,” but her books are much deeper than the average chick lit. I am excited to see “Something Borrowed” because that movie was based on one of her books. Heart of the Matter did not disappoint. It was INTENSE. I finished it on Sunday.
Now I have moved on to Water for Elephants. I’ve heard so much about it that I have really been wanting to read it before seeing the movie.
I thought it would be hard to get used to reading on the Kindle, but it wasn’t at all! I can’t wait to take it to the beach. I love that you can order samples of books and try a few chapters before you buy. And I am really excited to learn how to share books with other Kindle users. My friend Kati has one, too… and we have always been good “book-swappers.” We have a similar taste in books.
So… I have to give Ryan serious props… he did a great job with the Mother’s Day gift! I heart you, husband!
