Happy second week of this beautiful new year! Is your year off to a blazing good start?
Great balls of fire! Mine certainly is.
I've been in a searing frenzy of productivity around the old homestead. Start rearranging furniture at midnight? Hot damn, I'm just heating up at midnight.
And in the blogging department? Well, lately, I've been neglecting poor Baja in favor of my everything else blog, Dusty Us Diaries.
BUT as the embers of 2011 burn to ash, the sparks of 2012 have ignited an inferno of exciting book bloggy ideas. So stay tuned!
And my reading? Off to a sizzling start with Summer by Edith Wharton. It is a scorcher! (teehee)
Using all the these fiery words tickles me. Hope you are amused too and not ready to toss me onto a pyre. Okay, moving along, just in case.
Have you guessed my secret yet? Are you burning to know? (teehee again)
Aw, you're so flaming brilliant, I bet you already figured it out.
Alright, I never in a million years (or at least 5 years) expected to say this but here goes.... the big reveal...
I received a Kindle Fire for Christmas!
I am actually the
Dang, I don't know nothin' 'bout reading on e-readers!
Ha, looks like I don't know whether to smile or grimace. Just momentary cognitive dissonance though.
My mind was a whirl of: Uh buh.. no e-reader is my trademark. OMG! A KINDLE FIRE! Uh buh.. I prefer real books. OMG! A KINDLE FIRE! Uh buh... I want to be the last holdout. OMG! A KINDLE FIRE! I CAN GET ALL THE DICKENS' NOVELS FOR FREE! (And that is no lie. Dickens popped into my mind before all others. my bargain book hunting has been thwarted by Dickens all year)
So yeah, I'm fired up about my new book toy!
Why? There is no wi-fi at my house.
Why? My bone idle but charming and bookish (redeeming qualities) Hub bought a wireless router two years ago and has yet to set it up.
Is your life like a sitcom too?
Ours is a wonderfully maddening amalgamation of The Honeymooners, I Love Lucy, Andy Griffith Show, Beverly Hillbillies, Gilligan's Island and Fawlty Towers. Really.
So I'm giving Hub until February to hook up the wi-fi so I can set up my Kindle Fire in the comfort of my own home. If there is still no wi-fi on February 1, I'll go use the library's wi-fi.
How much you wanna bet that I will be at the library on February 1?
Until then, I will just stand next to my Kindle Fire...
Where do you stand regarding e-readers? If you have one, which one do you have? How often do you use it?
