Booking Through Thursday - Windfall

This week's question:

Yesterday, April 15th, was Tax Day here in the U.S., which means lots of lucky people will get refunds of over-paid taxes.

Whether you’re one of them or not, what would you spend an unexpected windfall on? Say … $50? How about $500?

(And, this is a reading meme, so by rights the answer should be book-related, but hey, feel free to go wild and splurge on anything you like.)

Let's see...if it was $50...definitely on books. I don't know which ones, whichever happen to be on my wishlist. If it were $500, I think I might buy myself a Kindle. I've heard so many people talking about it. I have an old ereader that I got many years ago and have never really gotten into reading ebooks (I still prefer print), but if I had the extra money to get a Kindle, I think I'd give it a try. Or possibly I'd put it towards a laptop. I always think one of those would be nice when I go away on vacation, but then again, it's always nice to get away from the computer and just be alone with hubby sometimes :) So, most likely a Kindle.

  1. I've heard that the Kindle "reads" the book to you, though is that like the old S.A.M. or a real voice... or like those new computerized voices that only once in a while sound like the machines are taking over.

  2. I would prefer to spend the money on actual books. I don't really like the idea of lying on the beach with a kindle/e-reader rather than a book. :-)

  3. I don't think I would like a Kindle, but a friend has one and loves it!

  4. Definitely go with the Kindle. All you lucky Americans getting money back from your taxes. So unheard of over here!
