The One with the Kindle


Steve got me a Kindle 2 "just because" (personally, I think he just likes things that are electronic). I just don't know if I should keep it. You all know I love to read. I go to the library a couple times a week, and the librarian knows me so well that she automatically checks certain books out for me! With the Kindle, I won't go to the library ever again because it will download any book I want in 60 seconds, no computer or cell phone required. That means I can be sitting on the beach and download a book to read right then and there. The Kindle is amazing, but I don't know if I really NEED it. What would you do? Would you keep it??

Of course you don't NEED it. Plus, I hate having stuff around I would freak out about if my kids broke (laptop aside). However, it was a gift...and you'll probably use it. How much are books to download? If having the thing is going to cost more than $10-$15 a month I'd say just stick with the library- but I'm kind of cheap that way.
Any just because gift is always nice! You've got a good hubby.

ha ha don't ask me! I am a total gadget freak! I would totally keep it just because it is a gadget, plus it sounds fun! But I think I would miss holding the actual book. so I don't know. . .
