... but a surprise gift from The Husband, met with much cheer!
Yes, I am finally the proud owner of a Kindle!
When it comes to presents, I am not an easy person to surprise. I know this, and after 21 Christmas Days together, The Husband definitely knows this. He wanted to surprise me with something special this year, while I just assumed we weren't exchanging gifts, as per usual. (We bought the kids iPod nanos, taking a bigger chunk than usual out of our gift-giving budget.)
So while I was presented with my first ever Kindle, he had to make do this morning with two Hershey Special Dark chocolate bars in his stocking.
We've been on the go all day, traveling 1.5 hours up to the in-laws for breakfast and exchanging gifts (more bookish stuff, including the long-coveted Zenobia by Beth Kephart!) and then over to my mother's for more gifts (and more books). I managed to find time to download 47 free books and 4 sample chapters, one of which I've already read most of.
I'll have more of a Christmas recap (especially of the books!) soon but until then, I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas and a great day!
