Once again I've remembered my blogs, so let's have a quick update.

I'm just getting over an upper respiratory infection that had me out for most of last week. Had to stay home from work for three days, but felt good enough to go in on Thursday, since I knew I'd have Friday off to recover. Feel better today, and good enough to join Donna at Bingo tonight. Probably going to take it easy tomorrow, although I might try to head to Nuclear Comics to see what they have left over from Free Comic Book Day. Can you believe that I've had to work on FCBD for the past three years?? What are the odds? Any given year you would have a 50/50 chance of working the first Saturday in May, but three years running?

Have I mentioned that I absolutely love my Nook? Even without the new web browser and games I was certainly enjoying it. I'm picking up e-book versions of some of my favorites, plus downloading free copies of material from Google books. Found a history of my hometown of Norwich, CT written in the late 1800s. how cool is that? Each week Barnes & Noble makes a free download of some new book available. There have been items by James Patterson, Debbie Macomber and others. Last week it was one of L. Ron Hubbard's pulp SF stories.

One of the other things I enjoy is the ability to download a 'sample' of just about any book. Nice to be able to 'browse' something without going into the store. Then if you like the book you can simply download it and have most within a few minutes. Sorry to sound like a commercial, but I really do recommend it if you're thinking about getting a Kindle. Just another option.
