Geeking out with my iPhone

Saturday, December 11th, 2010

Here’s a post about a few iPhone things I would have liked help with upfront. Case! Before I bought an iPhone I picked myself up a case. I’m not the most gentle technology user, and knew I would need a durable one. I read a number of articles about touch iPhone cases and realized there […]

Kobo + iPhone = Not so slick

Saturday, December 11th, 2010

I’m pretty disappointed in the Kobo/iPhone integration so far. I was eager to have a few books from my kobo library on my phone, so downloaded the Kobo App the first day I got Harley. When I launched the app and logged into my account I expected for my books to magically appear on the […]

Meet Harley

Saturday, December 11th, 2010

No, not the motorcycle in the picture. That’s N’s and I don’t think it has a name (and I don’t really like it – even though I sat on it). Harley is my iPhone. It’s about time, eh?

The Hunger Games Trillogy

BEST BOOKS EVER. I’m turning into quite the little sci-fi teenage nerd, eh? I want to be Katniss. Read all three books in 1 week. They were awesome.

A book club selection for October about an abused woman who escapes from her husband. It’s also the first book I’ve read on paper in awhile.

My friends do cool things

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

I have friends doing interesting things. I thought I’d share a few of them. First there’s Nat who is working on a TOEFL iBT site. If I needed to learn English, I’m sure this would be super useful. Then there’s Lisa who has her startup Coupled Together with her husband Marc. They started their relationship […]

The Art Of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

One of the most enjoyable books I’ve read in recent memory. I fell in love with Enzo, the dog who is also the narrator of the story. I like him so much I actually might consider getting a dog. But not a Chow.

Uglies & Pretties by Scott Westerfeld

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

Books 1 & 2 in a YA sci-fi series that take place in a world where on your 16th birthday you get surgery to look beautiful. Ate these right up. Super fun. Can’t wait to read the next two (Specials and Extras) but those are on hold until I finish a few library books that […]
