Woohoo!  I'm past the halfway mark on my granddaughter's quilt!  I'm so anxious to work on something else, but I know if I do I won't get it finished so I'm quilting away slowly but surely.
I have been reading so many good books lately.  I really liked Little Princes by Conor Grennan.  I usually don't like to read nonfiction but this one was written really well and it was a great story! 
J.D. Robb is still going strong in Treachery In Death.  I love her characters!  J.A. Jance's Fatal Error is good and I just listened to Red Herring Without Mustard by Alan Bradley and read by Jayne Entwhistle.  She makes Flavia deLuce the most awesome character!
There are some books that are just made to be listened to!  Especially Harry Potter, Diana Gabaldone, Alan Bradley and Janet Evanovich.  My imagination just couldn't give the characters those great voices. 
We just got the iPad 2.  I love reading books on the iPad!  It has great bookmarks, I love the way the pages turn (with sound effects!), the lighting is good (I like to read in the car and you don't need an extra light to read at night), and it's not big and bulky so I can carry it in my purse.  I like the Kindle because it's smaller and lighter weight, but I keep turning the pages as I hold it, you need an extra light, it's not as user friendly as the iPad and I like the iPad's color and, of course, all the other features!  I love to play games and I like to be able to get on the Internet and the maps are cool too!  I have the Kindle app on the iPad so I can have both!  Oh! and I can also download an audiobook to listen to while I surf or play games!!!  Life is great!!!
A friend has the Nook Color and it's nice with some of the same features as the iPad but I am a big fan of Amazon so that wouldn't work for me.
I'm very happy with the iPad 2 and now I'm off to play!
