Joining in with Ginny for her weekly yarn-along. :)
OK, so, confession time. I got myself an e-reader. In spite of every single thing I have ever said against them. And I'm still saying, "I'm not converted, I *love* real books, it's just for a season..." Because I will NOT be getting rid of my paper books. Nope.
Still... I have been using it a lot since I got it. And it's pretty fabulous for reading while nursing, and if I get distracted or a child bumps me I don't lose my place, and heavy books are suddenly manageable, and I can *carry more than one with me*. I'm converted. Sort of.
Free books are the biggest bonus. I have just read this whole series of Star Wars mini-books (free) and enjoyed them immensely for mindless reading. I have also read a few classics, a lot of poetry, some fairy tales and the like to the children (Just So Stories: bonus!). It's great. It's not quite the same as paper, but *whispers* in some ways it's actually better. For me. With a baby in arms. Honestly.
I got some store credit for sending a lot of feedback about some of the formatting not working correctly, and spent it on the much-recommended Hunger Games trilogy which I read in very nearly one long sitting in just under two days (and neglected all other responsibilities bar nursing to do so, sorry family). And I'm wondering why my Passover-Clean house is now an utter state!
And I knitted it a cozy. ;)
I can't decide if this is evidence that I have totally lost the plot. My husband thinks so.
