Time to recharge


I decided yesterday that my only real hobby is reading...I only read about quilting, knitting, crochet instead of doing. Right now, I blame that on exercise. When I finally make it home, I've lost all will to craft. I turn on the t.v., flop on the couch, and ache. Before I left yesterday, I was talking with Mary and through a Martha show connection, we made it to a discussion of Amazon's e-book reader, the Kindle. I Heart Amazon. I really, really do. Really. I already visit frequently and I've managed to maintain a superficial interest in the $399 Kindle. I'm kind of an electronic doo-dad and gadget fan anyway but usually it takes someone else to have one before I just gotta get my own. Until yesterday.

Now I want one. I actually went in to see what kinds of titles are available. And now I want one. Thanks, Mary.

I have to work out in my head how to justify it...less space devoted to books means less clutter, less housekeeping, more room for fabric...I'll get there eventually.

Maybe we could work out some sort of joint ownership arrangement. I want one also, but can't justify the expense unless I can ride it to work.
