OMG. I got an iPad for Christmas which seemed like a great idea. I could cart this thing with me all over the place and when I checked my calendar, I could actually see it, For my generation smaller is not better for all things. Anyway, back to the topic. I then downloaded lots of apps to make sure that I could make good use of my new tool/toy. I spent more time of Face book because sometimes I had nothing else to do , as I am not much of a gamer. I was able to keep current on my relatives children and my friends misadventures while on holidays and stay current with all the cute “You Tube “animal videos. I also downloaded a number of free books for Kindle, Koodo and whatever, as I liked the prices for some of the books I thought I might get to.
I never really believed for a split second that I would actually read a whole book without feeling the luxurious touch of paper on my hands and the ability to highlight areas ( I am one of those people who desecrated their books by writing in them)However, I am committed to change and being current so I continued on with my acquisition of e books. (The fact that I had moved the summer before and we moved 100 boxes of books and that was after the great cull, had me very interested in a more lightweight library)
So finally it happened. I wanted to do some research for an upcoming article I am going to write and I downloaded a couple of books (who can resist $2.99 for a whole book, even though I can’t really touch it?)and I started my work. I have been sitting here for 2 hours now and I have been able to tap on links within the content of the book that gets me into one interesting subject after another. I have notes like crazy and I am so excited I don’t think I will be able to sleep. I love this being able to go to wild places in cyberspace that lets me know more than I ever thought of. I am in information junkie heaven
The downside is I have only made it to page 15. It is now 11:40pm and I don’t see stopping any time soon. I am happy in my little cyberbook haven but I think my head might explode. So a word of caution for all of you who suffer from the same information addiction I do. Beware, when you buy an e-book as it is a slippery slope my friend. I felt I owed it to you to share.
I am off to another link. Good night..
