Bragging Rights

I got an iPhone!!!! Yipee.

What, you saw the title of the post and thought I got an agent, or some other fabulous publishing news? Well, you're wrong. We can't all be as lucky as Mr. Rick Daley. BUT an iphone is pretty fan-flippin'-tastic. My darling hubby surprised me with it yesterday. Wednesday is our three year wedding anniversary and he thought I'd like a new phone. So sweet. He gets lots of brownie points.

AND then, we were at Best Buy looking at phone cases and I saw the kindle. Would you believe it, my hubby said to me, "I suppose that's what you want for Christmas?" My little heart just fluttered at the possibility. Although, I didn't answer right away. I'm torn over this one. To own a Kindle or to, that is my question. Any Kindle owners out there> I have to confess, the only Kindle owner I technically "know" is Nathan Bransford and we all know that he's a fanatic. So what do the rest of you guys think?

I think I'd have to test drive one before I could come to any solid conclusion, but I'm curious to know what ya'll think. I've also heard I can read books on my iPhone (what can't I do with this marvelous technology), but I haven't tried it yet. Maybe I'll start there...

Congrats, Steph! I must admit... after reading Rick's good news, I DID think you'd found an agent, too! But an iPhone is almost as cool. And, as for the Kindle, well, I have a Sony - and I like it a lot. Even got to beta-read someone's novel (as a PDF) on it - that was pretty darn cool. So, all I can say is, good luck with your e-reader decision... it's a very personal thing indeed.

P.S. Are those pictures of you and your hubby at the winery? You're so cute!

Hey Laura - No, I must confess, an iPhone is NOT as cool as getting an agent, but I take what I can get!

Hmmm - I'll have to check out the Sony too. Decisions, decisions.

And yep, those photos are from our wedding at Ciccone Vineyard.

Well, it's all about the little things... right?

I love the photos, by the way... you guys look wonderful. What a beautiful place for a wedding!

Lucky ducky!... I want one ;) Now I'm going to stew all afternoon... Thanks Steph!

Steph Damore said...

Thanks Laura!

Jen - Sorry, didn't mean to make you stew! Just think, when you're a published author you can buy two!

It's going to be awhile Steph... You must have a lot of faith in me...(LOL)! I'm glad someone does. ;)
