At the beginning of 2011 my hubby and I decided to put together a list of mystery books that we would both read and then discuss. Our own little book club of sorts. Like most resolutions, I did well at the beginning of that year and then fell off. Recently, I got spoiled with an iPad mini. Now, ereaders at our house are in abundance due to Patrick's authoring of The Nook Book. While I liked my iPad 2 for surfing the web and such, I would get uncomfortable reading books on it because I couldn't curl up with it like a smaller print book. Enter, the iPad mini! I LOVE that thing. It goes with me everywhere and is great for book reading, magazine reading, and all my craft patterns. I've even been taking it with me to the gym. Walking for an hour or two can give you lots of good reading time! And reading time can be a challenge for me because I'm usually knitting/crocheting if I'm sitting.
