This is the first blog entry that I have ever written from my iPad. I got this device yesterday,  and I love it.

I haven't been reading a lot of fiction lately because I have trouble reading small fonts especially in dim light.

Last night I started to read, "Sense and Sensibility". It was amazing reading on the iPad. I can make the font any size, and since the screen is lit I can read in the dark.

There are even more wonderful features that I wish I had had when reading for college classes. You can select any word with a tap, tap again and get the definition. You can keep it highlighted, or highlight an entire phrase or passage, and then put a note on it! Or not.

To be able to read without glasses, in the dark, immediately look up words, highlight and make notes without a pen or pencil is fabulous. And I don't ever have to have a bookshelf, store the book, dust the book, or pack and move the book. Yay!

I love living in the year 2012.
