so just responding to your note ... oh some months ago! I so agree with you on the ipad and outside. So this week I bought at kindle! Surprised myself how much I love it Karin especially given I love the smell and feel of books. But its great to sit outside and read and new releases that are often just difficult to come by in Oz are d/l by the click of a button. Also great I discovered yesterday for eating lunch and reading ... don't have to hold the book open! LOL! How lazy is that! No seriously ... synced up with kindle app on itouch and ipad ... cookin' with gas here Dag!
