It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

I'm currently reading on an iPod Touch or Mac and while the Touch isn't the same as my old Palm, I like it a whole lot better then the Kindle.

I did purchase a Kindle. Used it for a couple of weeks. I liked the feel, the selection, the fonts/sizes, the screen look, the extra memory card slot. However, every time the page turned (too slowly!) the whole thing would black out before the next page showed up. It was giving me a headache so I returned it. They fix that and I'll consider it again.

It's me again with my welcome mat and the same information. ;)

Have fun!

Wow...bad news about the Kindle. I got the sony e-reader, the old one. It's slow, but doesn't black out. Now that I have the rhythm down, I hit the button right before the last sentence.

What kind of Palm were you using before?

Oh, and congratulations on completing the challenge. Sorry about that! Got sidetracked and almost forgot the reason I showed up. ;)
