To say that I`m an avid reader is an understatement. I have been devouring books since I was a young child and I simply can`t imagine a life without books. Each night, I look forward to slipping into bed and crawling into the pages of my latest book, escaping into a different world, understanding someone else`s story, exploring a foreign adventure. Combine my love of books with the fact that I`m a bona fide gadget girl and you can imagine my delight when eReaders started hitting the market. The newest is Kobo, brought to us by Indigo.
