|some of my books on display (finally)|
My love affair with reading started with The Babysitter's Club.
When I finished reading those and felt like I was "too old" for the babysitters club, I moved on to Ann M. Martin's next venture, "The California Diaries". These stories were a little more mature and were all about Dawn's friends in California. They dealt with issues like eating disorders and death and high school parties, in fact I remember passing around the book "Maggie" to my friends when we thought on of our friends had anorexia in 8th grade (she didn't).

I would pack an entire suitcase of books for vacation and spend ALL of my money on books before I even reached the vacation spot.
When I first got a Kindle I was terrified that I would miss the feel of a book in my hand or not enjoy reading on a screen instead of from a page, but my wonderful Kindle has been the best thing ever. No more having to find an open book store at 11pm to find the next book in a series because I just had to know what was going to happen next (yes, that has really happened before). Now, I just have to download the next book - if it's out yet otherwise I just suffer.
I now take my Kindle in my purse with me just about everywhere versus an entire suitcase full of books. Not to mention Kindle books are usually MUCH cheaper than the print versions.
