My New Kindle Paperwhite – Best Half Birthday Gift Ever!


Apparently we now celebrate half birthdays!

Yesterday Jon surprised me with a fantastic and thoughtful gift. He handed me a bag and said he’d bought me a book. When I looked inside I saw he’d bought me a Kindle Paperwhite with Ocean at the End of the Lane on it.

I was gobsmacked, I’ve wanted a new Kindle for ages, mine is lovely but knocking on a bit now, there’s no backlit, touchscreen with groovy new user interface. I had been toying with the idea of buying myself one at Christmas but now I don’t have to.

Also I was really excited about the new Neil Gaiman book, I’ve deliberately stayed away from spoilers and reviews and now I can dive right into reading it.

The best thing was I put it to sleep just before dinner and the screen saver was a quote from one of my favourite authors. It’s a sign of good things to come, I can feel it.

This morning I woke up to even more book related good news, Annie from Mammasaurus emailed me to let me know I’d won a copy of Let’s Pretend this Never Happened by Jenny Lawson aka The Bloggess, I can’t wait to start reading it.

    Sorry for inspiring jealousy, I just had to tell someone about how happy I was with my uber thoughtful gift. I have just checked your book out and it looks good, think I’ll add it to my list of books to read :)
