So apparently Ryan Gosling and me have birthday on the same day, and that day is today. Happy birthday, Ryan! You're an okay actor and I like some of your films quite well (Drive!!!, Blue Valentine, Lars and the Real Girl).
And in order to keep this post from becoming total photo spam, here is the gift I got from my lovely fiancé this year:
It's a Kindle Paperwhite. There will be a post upcoming why I decided it would be a good idea to own an e-reader but right now I'ma gonna go get some more wine, watch some more Babylon 5 and fiddle around with my new precious.
Happy birthday!!!!! I hate to say it, but I really enjoy my e-reader (I have a nook color). I'm currently reading on it right now! I was too cold (and cheap) to go to the bookstore and buy the hardback of Insurgent, so I got to stay in my warm pajamas and pay $7.00 for it on the nook! Enjoy and have a fabulous birthday!!!ReplyDelete
Thanks Victoria! I can totally already see all kinds of advantages of an e-reader :)Delete
I hope you had an awesome birthday! I look forward to reading about your decision to own an ereader. I adore mine even though I don't use it all that frequently. It is just so handy for travelling and journeys. I still love physical books (pretty obvious from all the ones I buy), but I have never regretted buying a kindle. Happy birthday!!ReplyDelete
p.s. thanks for the Ryan Gosling man candy :D
I think e-reader is good for certain situation, but it's not like it will be replacing all physical books from now on. I've been using it for over a day now and have started forming pros and cons. Thank you :))Delete
Happy Birthday! Looking forward to hearing more about your e-reader experience, I'm still resistant, but do sometimes wish I had one for travelling!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Christine :) I will definitely write a very elaborate post after I have been using it for a while.Delete
Happy birthday! Your Paperwhite is gorgeous, I hope you enjoy it. As you know, practically all of my reading is on an e-reader.ReplyDelete
Thanks! Yes, I thought of you when I was downloading all of those free classics for my Classics Club reading :))Delete
Happy Birthday! I hope you enjoy your new Paperwhite.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Melissa :) I'm sure I will.Delete
I love this whole post. And you're gonna write one about how you like the e-reader, right? Right? :-)ReplyDelete
I'm a little late (oops), but HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I hope it was awesome.
Hehe thanks Sarah :) Oh yes, the post is coming. I've already taken a bunch of "e-reader vs real book" comparison photos and am brainstorming against and for bullet points :)Delete
