    Looks like you got some interesting stuff again this week! My post is here.

    Must say, I haven’t heard of any of these. But I see you have a Kindle. What are your thoughts on it? Do you enjoy it? I was lucky enough to have a husband who ordered me the Kindle 2 for Valentine’s Day — it should arrive soon and I am just so excited. I hope it is as good as I think it will be!
    I LOVE my Kindle. It’s a Kindle 1 vs Kindle 2. I’ve had it since last May and it is my preferred way to read a ‘book’. Though I still read paper books I’ve started asking publishers/authors/book reps to send me pdf files instead of paper books. I simply download the pdf file to my Kindle and I’m off reading. It was really nice when we took our winter vacation. No more lugging around paperbacks. I loaded 25 books on the my Kindle and they didn’t weight over 10.3oz. Another major selling point for me is instant delivery of bestsellers for $9.99. That even beats Costco!

    Thanks for posting Jen’s book club picks! I didn’t realize she’d chosen April and May already!
    Actually Jennifer hadn’t announced the selections yet at Facebook. I blabbed about it here. Jenn and I had traded some emails regarding selection choices and I spilled the beans. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  33. February 23, 2009 5:36 pm

    Here is my contribution for this week. Some great stuff came my way. Marcia, thanks for the shout out for the Historical Lovers Book Club! I’d be happy to answer anyone’s questions.

  34. February 23, 2009 6:41 pm

    You changed your look. I’m kinda thinking I liked it the other way better though. Sorry.

    My post is here:

  35. February 23, 2009 6:51 pm

    Hi–Just wanted to thank you for sharing your thoughts on the Kindle! I get mine this week and I can’t wait. Thanks for the tip about the PDFs too! And I’m just itching to get some of those hardcovers that I’ve been drooling over but didn’t want to pay full-price for! Can’t really beat $9.99! Thanks for the input.

  36. February 23, 2009 7:46 pm

    I went to a library sale this week and got a big old pile of books. You can find my post here.

  37. February 23, 2009 7:54 pm
