My Motivation to Buy a Kindle…

I’ve been a reader my whole life. In fact, it’s reached nerd status and notoriety too. It all began in sub B (grade 2) when I read the entire Bobbsy Twins series and got about half way with Nancy Drew’s earlier adventures (prior to the vastly updated and cooler Nancy Drew Files). I then moved onto Willard Price’s Adventure Series and proceeded to devour everything that had been stamped with Enid Blyton’s cool scribble.

It all followed in quick succession as I became a preteen: The Babysitter’s Club, Sweet Valley Twins (and later, Sweet Valley High and Sweet Valley University), Thoroughbred (my obligatory 11year old horse obsession), Sweet Dreams (I cringe) and Fearless. I’ve loved series to the absolute utmost and own and have read the Harry Potter series around 20 times (each book). Followed by Ken Follet’s epic masterpieces of Pillars of the Earth and The World Without End, I have also owned and read multiple times the Spud series, the Millennium series (The Girl), the Twilight series and the Hunger Games.

You know when people watch series? Well I read them. And so – for this very reason (and so that I don’t have to lug a bag of 10 books when I go away in December) I am getting a Kindle. Hoohah.
