I can’t believe a new Kindle has come out. I feel like I just got the Kindle 2 for Christmas… what is a girl to do? I hear it is smaller, lighter, has buttons that are more easily depressed (big difference here being not having to press inwards on the Kindle, but out), and has better button placement. Oy. This is always going to happen in the world of technology though, right? Everything coming up new every time you get the latest new gadget; you get it just in time to hear about a newer and better version. Hello capitalism, I enjoy supporting you with my money!

On another, lighter note, I thought I would share a picture of my nails… with the butter All Hail McQueen nail polish! I finally took a mini snapshot of my nails with the polish on… I had to. The color is so pretty! Hopefully my Blackberry camera didn’t ruin the beauty of the polish!

So pretty right!

The flash makes the color look the teensiest bit off, but you can generally adore the shimmery taupe color 🙂 IMG00049-20101025-2229

Love this stuff. Perfect for everyday and it chips incredibly discreetly so you really don’t have to worry too much about the horrors of a chipping polish!

I got Kindled.

For Christmas this year, my boyfriend utterly and totally surprised me with a Kindle. I know I said previously I wanted the Nook, but apparently it’s not quite ready to be used as a trusty, serious eReader. And I am loving my Kindle with very little to complain about.

Reading on a Kindle really is like reading a paper book: it’s easy on the eyes, with adjustable text sizes, and a cute white exterior. The wireless WhisperSync technology makes it easy to download books anywhere (within the US), though some areas have less reception like some areas have bad reception for my Verizon cell phone. Another nifty thing I’ve found through Kindle help blogs is the ability to search by price (aka for those free ebooks) through Amazon. I’ve downloaded a bunch of Classics, in addition to newer books with the limited au gratin price tag. I just finished my first book, The Crossroads Cafe and it was one of the most moving books I have read in a while (and it was one of the freebies, though now owns a $9.99 price tag, lovely timing).

One of my friends from home mentioned her mother receiving a Nook from her son; hopefully she’ll like it though, I was very tempted to recommend her waiting out the next release of the Nook. Oh well, as long as I’m happy with my Kindle and the Nook works for her, there’s nothing to complain about here :).

eBooks

We’ve all heard of the Kindle, Amazon’s hit eBook reader that makes it easy to take your library with you, where ever your life may lead. More recently, Barnes & Noble’s Nook has come onto the eBook reader radar, bearing a lending program between Nooks in order to save some money. They are both on my wishlist this December (one of course, preferably the Nook, but I really can’t be picky, plus the Nook isn’t set for release until January 11th), but I just picked up something a bit, well, cheaper.

The MobiPocket eBook reader can be downloaded to your computer and to your mobile device (here are the supported devices) for free. Yes, I said the magical four letter word: F-R-E-E. No money involved… to download it that is. Then you’ll have to pay for the books you wish to read. However, I’ve found through my library’s website that they now have a digital selection, both audiobooks and eBooks available for download. I just downloaded the program to my Palm T/X and am very excited to start the sans paper reading (though I’ll still be using paperbacks for most things)!
