Tonight was the first night of Hanukkah, and I gave my three boys some new games for their Wii game system. Normally, my husband and I reserve our gift giving for our children. However, tonight I got a huge surprise!

I received the coolest gift from my husband and kids tonight. A splurge of a Hanukkah gift, a brand new Kindle! If you haven’t heard of this device yet, then you haven’t logged on to Amazon.com lately. It’s plastered all over their home page.

To clue in those of you who don’t know, a Kindle is an electronic book reader. It is so amazing! I can download books, newspapers, blogs, even my own documents and read them on this lightweight, paperback-sized device. The screen is easy on the eyes. I haven’t tested it outside yet, but the directions say I can even see the screen clearly in the sun.

I already purchased my first Kindle novel. I chose Q & A, a novel by Vikas Swarup. It’s the novel on which the film, Slumdog Millionaire is based. I recently saw the movie, a heart wrenching story, but beautifully told on film. As a writer, I’m anxious to see how the author spun the original novel. I usually do it the other way around (book first, then movie). This will be an interesting switch!

I’m interested to know if any of you have read an e-book. Or would you?

    I collect key chains. Every kind imaginable from gemstones to funny sayings. I’ve been collecting them since I was about 14. I have tons.

    Use it in good health!! I have never heard of this…and can’t wait for you to tell us about it.

    I have not read an ebook before but with all of the blog reading Ihave been doing on a PDA…the idea seems much more appealing now.

    I’m so jealous!! Ok you are bringing it in January so I can see it. I really want to see how it works in person. I’ve only seen it on Amazon but it looks so cool.
