With Christmas just around the corner, lists of what we want are being created and handed out 🙂 And I’m sure that most of us book-blogger-types have at least one book on our lists. So this week’s topic for the Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish (for some reason my blog won’t let my hyperlink: http://brokeandbookish.blogspot.com/), is about what books we hope we get during the holiday season 🙂
My answer to what books/book-ish things I want Santa to bring me is simple:
I’m not asking for any actual books this year. Rather, I’m asking for a Kindle. I know I’ve said in the past that I didn’t ever want an eBook reader. But, I started thinking about it and decided it would be nice to have. I love classics and lots of them are free in their Kindle Edition on Amazon.com 😀 And the Kindle Editions are cheaper than buying an actual book (unless you maybe buy a Dover Thrift Edition). And, if I get my wish and start traveling a little more, I’d much rather lug around a little Kindle than 5+ books!
So, Santa, if you’re reading this: I want a Kindle! (And maybe a leather case for it to keep it safe 🙂 )
PS- I decided that since I only want the $140 Kindle (I don’t need 3G–if I have something with 3G, I’ll never get off the internet), I’ll buy it for myself if I don’t get it from Santa. I feel it’s a good investment 😛
