What do you think of my new clutch....
Oh wait...it was turned the wrong way. It's not a purse...
It's a case for my new Kindle! With pockets in the side to stick papers, credit cards, pens and other goodies!
What do you think? My mom made it and I told her she needs to sell the on etsy. Would you buy one?
Speaking of ebook readers...
I am a self proclaimed book snob. I buy books like they're going out of style, when I moved I had 19 boxes of books and always like to check out what other people are reading. The librarians all knew my name when I was growing up and as soon as I was old enough, I got a job at the library. I majored in English in undergrad, graduate school and now I'm getting my MFA.
Books are my life.
That's why I swore I'd never get a Kindle. I couldn't imagine reading off of a device where you don't turn pages or have a cover in color. How would I mark up the text? Wouldn't I miss the smell of a new book?
I openly dissed Kindles whenever I had the chance.
Until my mom got me one for my birthday.
Now I'm in love!
Seriously! I love love love it!
It's light, saves my place, I slip it in my bag when I'm going place and I can buy books whenever I want. It only takes a few seconds! I feel like I'm going through books a lot faster now (although I'm not sure why) and I love being able to search for a new book or buy one the day it comes out when I wake up (hello, Like Mandarin....I can't wait to do that next week).
While I'd never never give up a physical book, I'm a believer. I love my kindle.
