I have been an avid reader since I learned to read!! I use to read a dozen books a week when I was a kid! Now... not so much but I LOVE books! I also am a huge fan of "gadgets" and I really want a Kindle or a tablet or something to carry THOUSANDS of books with me. The idea just makes me so happy! I try to carry a paperback book with me everywhere and an e-reader would definitely be a plus. My sister got a Nook for Mother's Day... totally surprised her as she is not into gadgets AT ALL. She is learning to use it and I will see how she likes it before I get one for myself.
