I'm a slacker  
Ohmehgosh! I've been slacking on posting any entries. I feel so bad, but honestly not much goes on that I feel warrants any posting.

I guess I can start with my most recent purchase for myself. I bought an Amazon Kindle. It wasn't even on the top of my list of most wanted gadgets. Go figure. I considered myself a purist when it comes to reading. I love the feel and smell of books, but I find the Kindle just perfect. And I've found so many free and cheap ebooks, that I've got a pretty good start on the amount of books on it. Over 70 so far, and I've only had it for a little over a month. The freebie books have been the public domain classics, which is perfect when my mood requires a little Jane Austin. But I've also found some pretty good cheap ones. I read one called Hollowland by Amanda Hocking. I liked it a lot. I can also download some games. I got a word one that I play quite often. I do recommend the Kindle if you want an ebook reader, but I played with the B&N Nook too, and liked that as well.

I got a Acer netbook last week. That was near the top of the list for wanted gadgets. My dad bought it for me. My old laptops power jack died, so I've been without a portable computer. The laptop is fixable and is going to my 7 year old niece. I like the netbook so far. I like being able to slip it into my purse.

Still waiting for the new phone and switch to AT&T. They keep moving it back. Now it looks like April they will come. Still unsure of the whole thing.

Not much else to speak of. Hopefully I'll have more to write about later. Bye.

Rogue,
You should look in to Calibre for the computer since you read a lot of free books. Link is http://calibre-ebook.com/

Also check out this link on Harold's as I posted a lot of free ebook links there as well that you may not know of - http://www.forum.haroldandrews.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/244988/Re_Electronic_Books_Links
