I Got A Sony E-Reader

I can't believe how fast the days go by.  Already it's the middle of January and time to start looking forward to a new year.  I hope everyone had a lovely Chrstmas Season and that the New Year is starting out wonderfully for each of you and that it will be one of your best yet. 

I got a wonderfuly surprise from my husband for Christmas -- a Sony E-Reader, and I'm thoroughly enjoying it.  I wasn't sure how I'd like to read from an electronic gadget.  I've always been a book lover and have a hard time getting rid of my favorite stories.  But my reader is awesome.  I went out and purchased an e-book by RaeAnnThayne, a wonderful author and friend of mine.  Next I went to the website of Ginger Simpson and purchased her book, Sarah's Journey, one that had been on my to be read list for longer than I want to admit.  Next I talked to the local library and they have talked to me about how to download books.  I'm really excited about my e-reader.

Several friends of mine have e-readers like the Kindle and Nook.  I haven't found anyone who doesn't enjoy being able to download new books in seconds, take several on vacations without filling up their suitcase with lots of bulk, and being able to enlarge the print for those of us who have a hard time as we get more mature -- don't want to admit I'm getting old!

If you haven't looked into the e-readers, do it.  I think you'll be pleasantly surprised!
