30 Days of Thankfulness....Day 21

Josh:
Today I am thankful for my kindle and iPod touch. I hope this does not make me sound like a rich snob, because I am not! The kindle was a gift over two years ago, and with credit card points, we got 2 iPod touches for the price of one....

Those things are not necessary, but they make my life so much easier. I love to read, and in China its hard to find English books. Even if you can, they are expensive, not much variety, and you have to store them. We have (soon) will have 5 of us in a small apartment, with no room for a book shelves! With my kindle, I can have almost unlimited amount of books, usually the free ones, and read to my hearts content (in reality who has time to read though..)

My iPod touch is another wonderful gadget, that makes my life easier. I can play games while on the bus, or train. I have train schedules within my reach. I can check FB with the VPN, while in a coffee shop. I can entertain the kids during the long bus and train rides *sensing a theme?* I can take pictures and video of all the cool things I see in China, and the cool things my kids do.
Its not necessary, but I love it......and am very thankful for them...
