Anyone have any Christmas vents they need to share?
Here's mine: DH was very excited about his gift for me this year, had been hinting that he'd gotten me something kind of splurge-y and nice, which is a nice idea, but really, our budget is SO tight right now, I'd rather have practical things. Anyway, he got me a Nook, because I love to read. I read 5+ books a month, but I haven't bought a book in years, I only use the library. DH was under the impression you can rent ebooks from the library, but from what I can tell through searching today, they only have like history, how to, etc. books, not fiction. *sigh*.
So now DHs feelings are hurt because I'm not more excited about it, but really, I guess I can buy 1 or 2 books for it and pretend they take me forever to read, but I won't be able to read as many as I'm accustomed to, and now I feel like he will be offended if I sit here and read a library book after DS goes to bed. Ugh. There are a million other things I would have rather used that $$ on. I really enjoy getting books from the library, and reading lots of them, and until our financial situation changes, I am just not going to start buying books just to use this fancy new Nook.
Okay, vent over! Now share your Christmas vents!
