As a retirement bonus for myself, I have ordered a Kindle 2. I received an unexpected retirement-related check for almost the exact amount this week, so I decided to go ahead. I am still going to try to use the public library here whenever possible. We have a very nice one for such a small town, but some books are not available there, of course, and it is miles and miles to a bookstore. Pictures will follow.
I also have a list of things that I have been putting off until this point that I want to do to the house, etc. None of these are are very big, but there are a lot of them, mostly to do with rearranging for efficiency or decluttering.
