I got a text from my younger dd last night. She asked "Mom, when we were in school did you always have enough $$ for the book fairs"?LOL!!! Ok, can you be any more obvious? Since she lost her job their little family has been struggling financially. I simply told her that if she needed money for the grandsons' book fair...just tell me. It's such a small sum and that's what Grandma is for. I don't want him to miss out on a school function because of the lack of funds!

We're stopping by this evening to give them the $$. :smileyvery-happy:

I don't like the idea that you have to download iTunes in order to get the apps you want. I can't even believe we talk like this.LOL!!! Who could have guessed what technology would be like when years ago we got excited over getting new ELECTRIC typewriters in high school.HA!!

I like my son's ipad but since I'm not familiar with apple apps, it can be a problem which is why I didn't buy one. I think people are either apple lovers or not & since but DH & I spent most of our career working for IBM, there wasn't much time to use apple products.

Kids brought DH an ereader over a yr ago. I think he has read one book. He lives for TV & his computer.

Huh..I'd never heard of that. I have an Acer tablet and I love it. We tried the iPad, but the choice of apps is kind of restricted to Apple stuff. I wasn't a fan, even though the device itself is great.

I have a kobo that I love, use it all the time but also use an ipod to listen to books on tape. I have used my mini computer for both reading & listening to books. Before the kobo, I had another ereader that didn't last more than 4 mths & then the kids brought me a tablet but I found that had problems too. So decided to get simple & just have a kobo.

I use the Kindle app on my iPad and on my iPhone. I can read it from one. I love it! I love to read but DH isn't a reader - he would rather watch TV instead! LOL

U are lucky, my kids always wanted a ton of books. They all love to read.
2 of the 3 have ereaders & the third uses his ipad so I'm really glad I'm not paying to keep them in books now!!!!
