A new year has begun! I love the feeling of a new year. There are so many possibilities and a chance to make a fresh start.
My overall goals for the year are to increase my reading and blogging, both of which went way down in 2010. I also want to do a better job taking pictures throughout the year. My resolution in 2009 was to upload pictures each month to Snapfish and add them to an album. Then at the end of the year, I had a beautiful album to order, with pictures from the entire year! Unfortunately, I did not continue this into 2010. Now, I got a new camera for Christmas and birthday, so I am going to try to work on this project again for 2011.
Yesterday, I posted that I was starting to look at the NOOK from Barnes and Noble. Thanks so much for the great advice given in the comments! I did go and meet with a salesperson and I played around with the NOOKs for about 45 minutes to an hour. I had no idea they could do so much! Holy cow! I felt like I was in an infomercial with each reaction I had after the salesperson would show me something else on the NOOK. When I went in, I was thinking I wanted a regular NOOK because of the e-ink. But I love the ease of the touchscreen on the NOOKcolor. Many people keep telling me that it doesn’t take long until you forget you are reading on an e-reader and just get lost in what you are reading, just like in a “real book.” Please feel free to share any other thoughts on e-readers. I never thought I would be considering buying one… now I’m getting excited!
Happy new year! Happy reading!
