Happy Birthday to...

ME!

Yes, that's right...it is my birthday! I have to say that for a day that had few expectations, it has been pretty fabulous so far!

Andy and the boys woke me this morning with a present, and I have to say that it was one awesome gift! They gave me the Amazon Kindle. For those of you who don't know, it is a device that wirelessly allows you to download books to read. It is small, lightweight and holds up to 200 books! Add a memory card, and it holds even more. The problem? I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DOWNLOAD! I have 346 books on my to-read list on goodreads, and I can't narrow it down! I am very excited to get started reading on it!

I was also treated to lunch by my sisters, Mary and Margaret. We went to Houlihans-I love their stuffed mushrooms! It was nice being out with my sisters, and I hope we can do it soon! (OOH, wait, Mary's birthday is in 2 weeks!).

I came home to find flowers waiting for me-I think they are from my mother-in-law-she never signs the card! The birthday will continue this week-I am going out for Mexican food with my mother-in-law and her sister tomorrow, and I get to see my book buddies on Thursday! It's going to be a GREAT week!

I've wondered about the Kindle... you'll have to let us know if you like it!

It sounds like you had a great day:-) I am glad to hear it. And thanks for the info on the Kindle. I had heard of it but didn't know what it did exactly. That's an awesome present for a book lover like you:-)

I know I'm late, but Happy Day-After Birthday. I can't wait to hear what you think of your new Kindle! I've heard all good things, but don't know anyone who owns one personally.

Enjoy your birthday week!
