What’s playing on the iPod right now? DID YE GET HEALED by Van Morrison

It’s no secret that I love reading on my Kindle but I still laughed at Green Apple Books Smackdown on Youtube—Book vs Kindle.

They’ve gone 8 rounds if you want to view them all.

But here’s the latest for Storytime. Enjoy!

    That was hilarious.

    Not a Kindle person myself, yet, but my wife loves hers. She gets that first free chapter and if she likes it, presses a button. 30 seconds or so later, she’s reading the rest of the book. Keeps her nightstand pile very low, too. My nightstand pile is teetering.

    I love my e-reader (it’s a Sony) AND I love paperbacks.

    It doesn’t have to be one or the other – I enjoy playing on the Wii AND I live to play Scrabble at my kitchen table.

    To Sarah Laurenson regarding the teetering nightstand: I’m so there. I asked my husband to build me a bookshelf headboard for my birthday last year. Seriously.

    Ms. Nelson, I know others have also commented to this effect, but I’m really enjoying the little player that shares your iPod choice w/ us. Too cool.

    As a person with a paper fetish, I considered myself the last person who would ever own a Kindle, but I have one and I love it—especially since I go through so many romances. There are some things that were only meant for paperback through: like cookbooks and children’s books!
