Happy Birthday Christine!



Woo! Happy Birthday to me! For my birthday Joey got me a Nook! Wow amazing! He really did not have a choice I don't think because as many books as I read, the boat couldn't handle the weight/space of all of them.




(nook: e-reader)



This was probably decided after our last trip to Florida when we fought over who would have to carry my 'book' bag through the airport. 8 books for 4 days. So yeah, good decision and thank you Joey!!!



Another amazing thing about the nook is my local library has ebooks! which I can actually ... get ready for it.... : check books out digitally/remotely!! OMGGG!!!



So now I can get free books wherever I have internet connection long enough to download them from the library. The selection is meh because it is expensive and a new technology but the libraries are trying so support your local library!



I got my loving grammy to get me this amazing strap for it. Its a neck strap and is a waterproof case all in one. Check it HERE: http://www.amazon.com/TrendyDigital-WaterGuard-Waterproof-Padding-Reader/dp/B003ZRUCEO



So with this gorgeous thing I can sit in the cockpit and let the autopilot do all the work for me and should the need for hands on wheel arrive IMMEDIATELY I can simply drop the nook and its on a strap so it will not go anywhere. And if it does... well the case is waterproof too. Booya.



Just a little excited because it's my birthday and this is probably the greatest gift EVER.
