I did it. I've been thinking about it, looking for just the right time to do it. So, yesterday afternoon, I did it. I ordered a Kindle.
Now, it wasn't the price or the technology of the item that was holding me back. It was the idea that I couldn't ever have another book. And in truth, I will try to buy Kindle format first, but I have no illusions that I would ever give up book buying completely.
On a whim, I declared the Kindle a Mother's Day present and ordered it gift wrapped. I remember a few months ago when I wanted flowers and ordered them for someone who didn't appreciate them. So, this time, I ordered what I wanted for myself and had it wrapped....thus adding to the usage of paper and trash on the planet. Good lord, I cannot win.
I must be getting sick-I wanted something, selected something I have been considering, and bought it without angst. If the world is still on its axis tomorrow, don't blame me......
