    Thinking and Reading in the Pink!

    On Christmas morning I got a gift from the family that brought the widest smile to my face. A long hinted at Kindle Paperwhite. I have and love my Kindle Fire but I find with all my night reading the Fire with it backlight technology has been a little hard on my eyes also I do like to read late into the night causing my DH to often wake and say are you still up?

    Since the Paperwhite came out me and my eyes have been lusting after it and its e-ink down-light technology that is easier on the eyes not to mention the 3G capabilities.  Well let me tell you just a few days in and I’m already in love. It’s compact and light weight and my eyes are breathing a sigh of relief.

    Now I’m not giving up my Fire. I still love it for its other features, my email, Netflix, Words with Friends and not to mention my entire cloud library is over there too, shared with the Paperwhite, but as a dedicated e-reader the Paperwhite is it for me.

    Now all that said there came the dilemma of a cover. I couldn’t have my Kindle going and getting scratched but the cover quest was something that could make a person like me crazy. Thankfully I had Twitter to go to for my answer. I ended up getting rave reviews for the cover that puts the Paperwhite to sleep and wakes it up when you open and close it.

    And going with my new theme for 2013 of brights for the New Year and taking my DD’s direction I decided to step out of my usual black zone and THINK PINK! Happy Reading to me! Hey at least my e-reader won’t go getting lost in the dark.


    What do you think? Are you feeling in the pink so far for 2013?



    All the best,

    A New POV

    So I have a new lover. And shock of all shock, this one isn’t a handbag, but it will fit very nicely inside just about any that I have thankyouverymuch.

    It’s the Sony 505. Squeal!!!

    I can’t tell you have excited I am over this. I just get all tingly thinking about it. Book upon book upon book all in one slim sexy little device. Just holding it feels positively decadent.
    Cut to me with the DH sleeping on one side and my 505 on the other. Bliss.

    So far I have 15 books on my reader. I mean just imagine if I were lugging those 15 books around with me. Not very cute. And the lovely thing about the Sony is I am able to put my own documents on it too so I can read my current work on the go and look it it from a new POV (Point of View).

    Could it be that this library lover is a digital girl? I think so.
    Anything worth you looking at this week from a new POV?
