5 Question Friday: Dec. 3rd

Today I am particpating in Five Question Friday hosted by My Little Life.

1. What's on the top of your holiday wish list and why?

Books. I keep thinking I may want a Kindle but then I can't decide. I love the feel and smell of a real book. Plus, I read a lot by the pool or on the beach and I am scared that a Kindle would be hard to read outside in the sun or that I would mess it up.

2. What is your favorite Christmas gift from the past?

When I was in jr. high my parents got me a seperate phone line in my room and a light up neon phone exactly like this one. Mine lit up pink though. I would love to still have this phone.

3. If you had life to do over, what would you be when you grow up?

I would still be a teacher. I love what I do. When I was younger though I wanted to be a dental hygenist.

4. When do you put up your tree?

usually the first or second week in December. I don't have one up yet though.

5. What is your favorite Holiday?

Halloween or Thanksgiving. Of course I love Christmas too. I also really like the 4th of July.

I love reading and I bought the kindle and returned it. Something about curling up with a book and not an electronic device was more appealing to me. Some of my friends love the kindle.

My mom loves her Kindle. She can read great outside & her favorite place to read is the tub. She's careful...obviously. It has an awesome NO GLARE screen that's perfect for outside poolside reading!

I'm getting a kindle for Christmas and I'm so excited. It's actually really easy to read outdoors because of the special screen. I will likely still buy books that I want to keep forever, but those random chick lit books I read on weekends and vacations, yeah I don't need a copy of it.

I have mixed feelings about the Kindle too... it's just so hard to not have a real book in my hands and fold back the pages. I LOVE that phone, too - looks like something from Saved By the Bell! :)

I LOVE books! I agree there's nothing like the smell and touch of the paper. The Kindle is pretty neat though :)

I've debated about getting a Kindle too and I decided against it. I just love my books too much!
