I've got news!


Not what you're thinking. ;)

I am completely D-O-N-E with my masters.
Done with school.
Done with papers.
Done with research.
And it feels so good.

And my sweet hubby came home a couple of weeks ago with a sweet congratulatory surprise.
A touch-screen Kindle.

Let me just explain something.
I am a teacher.
And I like tactile things.
Like, you know, books.

So. I was beyond excited about my sweet hub's generosity.
But I was a bit nervous about making the switch.

But. I vowed to try it out once I finished my last "book".
The Help.
Sidenote: I think I cried at least 17 times throughout the book. AND I committed the all-time cardinal sin and watched the movie before reading. But I have to say, although the book is obviously better, the movie is just superb.
I digress.

Then. I made the jump.
More like the leap.
And I.am.obsessed.
I don't know if I could ever go back.

Especially because hubs pre-downloaded a few books for me.
I love him.
And I love my new Kindle.
Even without pages.
