Thursday so far

Well, I already slept through a garden club meeting, waking at 10:30 a.m. when it started at 10.  Considering I didn't get to sleep until 4, I don't think I did that badly waking up at 10:30.  I missed an appointment yesterday because I thought it was today, but was able to reschedule for today.

I'm still trying to figure out why I have such an urge to collect e-readers.  It's not like getting print books, which I certainly haven't stopped doing.  E-readers are the medium, not the content.  I'd really like to see a Kindle and explore how to work it, but I don't particularly have the urge to buy a Kindle.  I didn't especially have the urge to buy a Nook, although a little of that might have been how the saleswoman there was putting more attention towards actual paying customers.  That's another one that I have more of an interest in seeing how it works.

I've already gotten a bunch more books from the Kobo store than the Sony Reader Store.  I downloaded a couple of free short stories through the Reader Store when I first got the Sony, but I have yet to buy a book from there.  I've bought books in epub format for my e-reader from e-book publishers and from ARe, Fictionwise and Rainbow eBooks, but if possible saved them into my documents as well, or saved a PDF of the same book into my documents, if the book was multiformat after purchase.

I probably wouldn't be buying from Kobo if I wasn't playing in the "win a Kobo Touch" promotional.  I have the feeling that I'll keep playing in those contests, though.  It's really fun to shop and also "Enter for a chance to win!"
