No Kindle for You!

Broke down and ordered a Kindle for my sister for Xmas (don't worry, she never reads my blog!). Problem is that the Kindle has been so successful for Amazon, that they won't be able to fill my order before Xmas!

I almost passed on it, but it's a perfect gift for my sister, and she so, so, deserves the perfect gift. So she won't have it under the Xmas tree, but I'll come up with something to wrap and put under there, so she has something to unwrap from me.

My sister had one of the Rocket eBook reading devices during the boom...and she totally dug it. She read quite a few books on it before they went under.

Interestingly enough, my sister is so not a geek. She uses a computer at work, knows how to map things, and orders from Amazon occasionally, and plays solitaire and a casino game, but that's about the extent of it. She's not much of a gadget owner/user either.

But she loved her eBook reader for many of the reason's I've expressed in earlier posts. Seriously. I'm not trying to indoctrinate her into the madness. I'm not buying it so that I can play with it (but hey, you know).  And I'm not trying to pin my own interests on her.

At least, I hope not (:

About Me

My photo
This is me and one of my two cats. His name is Cougar, and he’s an F1 Chausie. A chausie is a new breed of cat under development. Chausies are the result of a cross between a domestic cat (in Cougar’s case, a Bengal) and a jungle cat (Felis Chaus). Cougar’s mom is 8 pounds and his father is a 30-pound jungle cat. He’s about 16 pounds, super intelligent, spirited, and toilet trained. A writer without a cat (or two) is not to be trusted.
