E-book Happiness

I admit it—everyday I fall a little bit more in love with my iPad! I’ve had a list of books that I’ve wanted to read for awhile now, but I couldn’t find any of my choices at the library or at Grassroots Books, which is my favorite used books store in Reno. I’m such a sucker for print books—I love the feel, the smell, flipping the pages—but when I received a Kindle gift certificate for my baby shower, I decided to bite the bullet, download the Kindle app and try out an ebook. I ordered The Things They Carried (I’d recently seen author Tim O’Brien speak and so this title was on the top of my list) and I may now be an ebook convert! I finished the book in just a few days, and in the meantime, managed to check out The Paris Wife, my next book club book, digitally from my library. I had no idea that was even possible! Seeing as I haven’t read much lately beyond In The Night Kitchen and Counting Fun with Elmo & Friends (two of Nora’s current favorites), being able to download real, adult books may be the highlight of my month (at least until baby arrives!). I heart you, iPad.
