I will be doing my monthly weigh-in in the next couple of days. I expect to be down another 10 pounds. I will post the official weigh-in blog on Sunday or Monday.

So there is something I have been eying @, for a while now. I finally ordered my self a Kindle Touch E-Book reader !!! I am giving myself this gift for reaching a total of 40 pounds lost. If by some chance, I fall short of the 10 pounds this month, then I will not even open the box until I reach that goal.

There are many books that I want to read and a real book that cost $15 is usually only 7-9 dollars if I download it to a Kindle. I also recently found out that I can get free book downloads from my public library online. Who doesn't like free books ?? I am also a "PRIME" member at Amazon, so that entitles me to a giant selection of free books.

Now that the nice weather is here, I will be doing more reading. I love laying in the hammock on my front porch and reading on a nice day. Our summer trip down to Martha's Vineyard is also a time when we like to go read for a couple hours at the beach or to this great little gazebo next to the water, where all the sail boats are. Ahhh, Just wishing I was there right now !!! It's only 90 drive and a ferry ride away but it really does feel like I am somewhere far away. It's just a different feeling there. Everybody seems so nice & friendly there. Much different from the rest of the Boston area. Maybe it's because most of the people are on vacation so everybody is more relaxed, or maybe it's just the beautiful surroundings and all the fresh air. Whatever it is, it is one of my most favorite places on earth !!!

On another quick note, no word on the job that I had a 2nd interview with this past week. The man who I met with on my first meeting and who would be my boss, told me that he would be out on vacation this week so I am hoping that a phone call will come my way on Monday. Keeping my fingers crossed.

That's all for now. Stay tuned for my May weight loss blog coming soon to a computer screen near you !!!

I hope you are all doing well, moving forward & making healthy choices.

    Thank you all for taking time to read & comment on my blog.

    Just thought I would share this : for those of you that have a kindle and use Facebook. If you like the Kindle page on Facebook, they announce specials and daily deals to Facebook members.

    Can't wait to read about your monthly weight loss - the suspense is killing me!

    You'll love your Kindle. I finally got one even though I prefer the feel of "real" books. You can download a lot of classics for free, and Amazon often has daily deals for 99 cents. I like that I can take a huge book selection with me in such a small space. I belong to a few book clubs, so I like the Kindle because I can underline things and take notes for our discussion. I also downloaded the Kindle reader to my PC at work, so when I bring my lunch I can take a break and read for a little bit while I eat, and then sync right back up with my Kindle at home (I don't always remember to bring it to work with me, so I like the option of the reader on the PC).

    Good for you!!! I just picked out a paddle board as a gift to myself when I reach my goal. But then I saw how expensive they are and decided it would be my prize for maintaining my goal weight for a year. So I've got some time to save up. LOL

    I was thinking about the Kindle Fire but decided that I just wanted it for reading so why spend the other hundred bucks. I use my computer for games and (wifi to the t.v.) for movies and t.v. episodes. I cant wait until Monday when it will arrive.
