"There I go, tun the page..."


There is another reason I haven't been blogging lately. It's also the reason my apartment is a mess, the laundry isn't done, and my time when PJ is napping or asleep for the night has been hijacked.

This is the reason:

Pete and PJ gave me a Nook for Mother's Day! I had always been anti-Nook. I am an avid reader and for me, books are like air, like water, like food. I need books. My (very) large collection of books make me happy! They are all in amazing condition- we do not dog-ear pages, misplace dust covers, or use anything for a bookmark besides a slip of paper. I can walk around Barnes and Noble for hours perusing volumes. Nothing makes me happier then a stack of books. So how could I enjoy a little electronic tablet?

Turns out? I could. It took me all of about 6 seconds to start drinking that Kool-Aid! It's been in my hands pretty much every second PJ is in his crib! Since Mother's Day, I have read:

  • The Kid: What Happened When My Boyfriend and I Decided To Get Pregnant by Dan Savage
  • The entire Anne of Green Gables series (7 books) by Lucy Maud Montgomery
  • Bossypants by Tina Fey
  • Two Kisses for Maddy by Matt Logelin
  • My Fair Lazy by Jenn Lancaster
I have created a wishlist that would allow me to buy a book a week for the next four years before I completed it (you know, theoretically. If I had that kind of money to blow.). I can read in the dark. One afternoon, PJ snuggled next to me on the couch for a nap, and I could snuggle my sweet boy while I read with one hand! How awesome is that??? And if we ever travel, I can pretty much bring all of my books with me! On our honeymoon, I packed two books to read, and I finished one of them on the plane ride there. Now, I can just order a new book with the touch of a finger!

oohhhhhhhh, yeeeeeeah.

So, that's my new addiction. I've gone from a regular old book nerd to a tech nerd/book nerd. And I'm proud of it! :-)

Off to bed! 

Goodnight!

I am so jealous! How was Bossypants and My Fair Lazy?
