DW and I like to go to B/N and have coffee and look through magazines. Sometimes I buy them. Others I get good ideas from. Some of the books we're buying are out of print books my kids use to have read to them and now they're wanting them for their own. I can't see the expense of a Nook or Kindle. It's luxury and fad. Plus it would look lonely sitting on a book shelf. Anyhow I just ordered Cranberry Autumn one in the series of Cranberry books. They're out of print. Each has a recipe at the end. GD and I made the Cranberry cake together at Valentines day. We had fun even if she did get sugar all over the floor. Her newest Dream Snow has a button at the end you push and make twinkle sounds. I don't know how you'd do that with a Kindle or Nook. Her parents read to her each night, like we did ours. Kids who read do better in school so they say. RIF - Reading Is Fundamental. Our library takes donations of books and I was surprised to see the Twilight books on the shelf. They only charge $1 a book. Same if they have CD's or DVD's. I get a few now and then.
