My New Toy

And it's  a real cutie!  I'd played with the idea of getting a Kindle for a while, and started giving it serious thought after a big (1,000 pages or so) hardback book fell on my hand and bruised the heck out of me.  The Kindle has really gotten cheap, but having a single function toy didn't really make sense, so I talked to my tech savvy daughter and she said that I didn't need to wait for the price of i-pads to come down because there were  lots of pads and tablets out there that would do what I wanted, which is download books, surf the web, keep track of the weather when we travel and e-mail.  I don't download movies or play games so I didn't need one with a massive amount of  memory one.  So while talking on the phone we shopped together and decided on the g-Tablet.  I ordered it and took it up to her place this last weekend, because, as I said she's the techy in the family.  She set it up for me and I've been playing with it ever since.  I downloaded my first book in seconds, which is really scary because I spend money on books fast enough anyway!  But so far I'm very, very happy with it.
