My New Years Obsession!

Happy New Year! 
 I hope you had a great holiday!  Ours was filled with lots of traveling.  I am so ready to get our lives back on a somewhat normal schedule again.  I have so many projects planned and big goals for 2011.  Like most of you I am really motivated.  I hope this momentum stays!

I am in love with a new electronic device!  I got a Kindle for Christmas!

If you a an avid reader,
I must warn you, this baby is addictive.
I read alot, but I am

1.  To cheap to buy books.
2.  To lazy to go to the library. 
(Plus I never return books on time!)

The downsides are:
1. I have found is the ease of purchasing a book!
2.  I have read 9 books over the last two weeks!
(That may be one reason for not posting!!!!)
3.  I can't share these books with my mom or friends!

I love the built in dictionary. 
It also have a feature that allows
you to mark your favorite quotes.
I can also make notes while reading.

After having the Kindle for a week, I got a cover with the built in book light.

I can now read in the car at night and
in bed while hubby sleeps!
Yes, I am in love.

My goals this week is to put the Kindle down (Ughhh) and finish a few painting projects.

Happy Reading!

Hey girl! My brother-in-law travels a lot and has a kindle and just loves it! I'm so sorry that you have been trying to email me! I either somehow missed them or they are lost in cyberspace but I definitely would still love to accept the prize. You must have thought I was this crazy flaky gal! :-) My email is if you want to try it again!

I've been wondering if I'd like one of these. My sis-in-law loves her and like you, seems to be addicted! I would probably never get anything done!
Happy New Year!

Congrats on your new Kindle! I love mine. You CAN share some books (not all) with other Kindle users. My daughter and both sisters have one, so we are planning some cooperative purchases!

Congrats on getting the Kindle.

Question about your previous post on the kitchen makeover. Are you happy with spraypainting your hinges? Did you clean or prime them first?
