Once again!

I did not mean to take so long being away. But trying to figure out the new IPad.and reality TV has once again stolen me away from the blog. Bad Steven Tyler!

I've been on a reread binge lately. I've reread three this past week. Another reason I've been a bit scarce. Two were from last year and one from the nineties. The plan is when I'm doing a post with two whole hands is to go into further detail. You see - this post is coming to you from my IPad. This time I could get into the body. But as one of the very few people left who doesn't text, I'm stills bit slow and only using about two fingers to do this. And pics -forget about it. It's going to take some time to get that one down.

But wonder of wonders, I did get my ebooks over to the IPad and I quite like using it. And of course this meant I've had to purchase a number of ebooks these past couple of days - trying out different places like Smashwords and Kobo and Carina press. That's been challenging. Keeping the number of book buys down that is.

I dreamed last night that it was time to buy a new bike. But with a new 41inch flat screen TV and an IPad and ebooks, I think I'd better skip the dream bycyle.

Hey, Kristie........I love reading on the Ipad2.....I've also noticed it is better to order from Amazon, cause there are no taxes. I had to order 1 from Kobo, but they charge the HST.
I've only downloaded 2 though.
I had just ordered a bunch on line and they came in not to long ago, so I have to catch up on them.
Coffee soon?

Hmmm, so you like reading on the iPad? I've resisted the tablets and "color" readers mostly because I ADORE eInk. I like reading off a screen that doesn't have a glare. Will have to check out someone's iPad at RWA and see if I need to reconsider. Although I need another gadget like I need a whole in the head.....

Janice - I don't know how I did it but I managed to get my books from my Kobo over to the Ipad - and I like reading on it better too. I didn't realize we could avoid taxes by buying from Amazon. Though I've discovered a site that gives great discounts on books from Kobo. And coffee sometime sounds good!

Wendy: I really like reading off the Ipad. It has some wonderful features such as a lighted screen, cool turning pages etc. It's not as light at the Kobo so I kind of miss that feature. But overall - I think I like the Ipad better.

What's the site, Kristie? :)

I'm glad you're enjoying your Ipad! LOL. Can't wait to see you use it at RWA ;P
