Have you guys seen this thing yet? There are commercials playing all the time, but when I looked at its features I just couldn't help but fall head over heels in love!

Anyone out there who knows my family personally, please speak to my husband on this matter. Not only will it gain him some HUGE brownie points with his awesome wife, but it will make me one of the happiest people on Earth! I'm so sick of going to Books A Million and shopping, I'm sick of having someone (maybe the person who needs to buy me this) spilling who knows what on my new books, and I'm sick of loosing my spot while I'm trying to finish a book I can't put down! I'm sick of having forty-seven million books lying around and I could be so much more organized and simplified with the Kindle! I don't want to desperately need a new book "right this second" and have to drive all the way to the book store, purchase it, and come back home. I just want to be able to put Caleb to bed and read until 3 am if I want to. I want to be on the beach reading my awesome Kindle in full sunlight like the people on the commercial!
I seriously do not think I've wanted a toy so bad for Christmas since I begged my parents for a Baby Alive. I promise it was not in the last twenty years either! Ha!
