Kindle for Mother's Day last year and the pace of my reading has rapidly increased! I wonder if this is the case for other e-book readers? I love that I can view the first chapters of a book from the comfort of my bed. I am a night reader and thus, the ability to browse the Amazon bookshelf at 2 a.m., brings me great joy and a bounty of possible purchases for nary a cent spent! The fact that I have to put a book light on this device does not make me happy, but I'm starting to get over it. As someone who NEEDS to have every book that I actually LOVE, physically be present on my actual bookshelf, the Kindle has not saved me any cash when it comes to my favorites, as I now I have a digital and hardback copy of the same book. I do appreciate the fact that if I don't love the book, no paper or precious space on the actual book shelf has been waisted. I am also finding that I am reading quite deep on various subjects and from certain authors, due to the recommendations based on my puchases.
Food has been a huge theme for me this year!
