All I Want For Christmas Is My........

Over the last few months I have gotten myself back into reading.

This always happens to me.

I read allll the time.
I finish all my books and I'm just toooo lazy to go to a bookstore.

Then, I start to really miss reading.

It's the way I unwind before bed.
If the book is really good I always seem to find ways to read during the day.
Usually I tell myself that I'm really cold so I need to take a bath.

Then I sit in the for an hour or two and read away.
I ALWAYS come out looking like a raisin.
That's the price I'm willing to pay for a great book.
Aren't I a trooper?
I'm always willing to take one for the team~

I usually have a laundry list of things I wish for every year.
Nope, not this year.

All I want for Christmas is a Kindle.
The ONLY thing I want for Christmas this year is a Kindle.

Don't tell Bill but I know he already ordered it for me.

I asked for a screen protector and a cover for it from the kids.
Sure do hope they were listening.
I even told them what color I wanted.
Sure do hope they were listening.
I told them that I need a screen protector.
Sure do hope they were listening.

KIDS....IF YOU ARE READING THIS PLEASE GET ME A SCREEN PROTECTOR AND A CASE. I picked the case out and showed Jakob which one I wanted. Ask him about it.

What are you hoping for this Christmas??

PS. Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

We had to cancel the holiday at our house.
The little guy got the chicken pox.
Don't worry...I still cooked the 22 lb. bird and all the fixin's.
That's a lot of turkey for 3 people~

Hubby went to the ER. He got poked in the eye by a branch.
It was gross....They had to scrape his eye on Friday...Something about cells...
He's feeling much better now. *PHEW* I was a bit worried.

I thought I didn't want a kindle, but now I'm thinking that I might. I also really like the Barnes and Boble version of it!

I love to read, but totally go in spurts. I read like a mad women, and then can go months without reading at all.
I am so glad that Bill is ok. I bet that hurt. It's making my eyes water just thinking about it.
Miss you girly!!!

I love reading too and a Kindle would be divine! I read everyday ~ about a book a week. I used to go through spurts and read a bunch of books and then stop for awhile but not anymore....if I do not have a book in my face it is a magazine or something!

Sarah said...

How fun to get a Kindle, I would like one of those too. I am always toting books around like crazy!!
When you only want one thing it makes it so much easier for everyone!
Sorry your little guy got the chicken pox, but in a way it is good, at least you don't have to worry about it down the road! :)
I hope Bill is okay, the branch must have been painful! Poor guy!

I'm so jealous - it will be awesome.
sorry about your hubby.

Jeanneoli said...

You will have to let me know what you think about it. I love real books so I am not sure if it would work for me. So sorry about Bill's eye...that sounds soooo painful!!!

Lissa said...

just between you and me... the things I really really want for Christmas can't be wrapped or put in a box. But it's all I want...

Yuck...could never have a kindle. Too much plastic and digitalization around as it is. I have a passion for books. I like the feel of them. A nice hard cover with manila type pages is Heaven. I love vintage books and new books. Love the sound as the pages of kids picture books turn. I stare at a screen often enough...give me a REAL book!
....Still hope you get what you want!!

Libbie said...

Oooo wouldn't Kindle be fun? I kinda crave it too but everything I want is so expensive that I don't even dare ask for Kindle :) My list...a new deck :) (never will get it), a camera-a GOOD one-might get it but then I will feel bad because it is so much money! Pottery Barn Kids cameron creativity center. A new car-not new new but a big ole used gas guzzeling Expedition or something-See Kindle would be cheap for my hubby! :)

Since I am new -what is your All time favorite book? Mine is The Red Tent :)

I totally love reading like that too, but when it hit the big 4-5 my eyes started crapping out. I really need to get in for glasses. And I really don't like it when I find out my big surprises...

hope that every is feeling better~

I got my 15 year old daughter this for her birthday. She loves it. She is a book worm. This was a worthwhile purchase. Do you like yours?
I like your blog,
