Kobo! And Some More Light Summer Reading

It’s birthday month for me, and Tony gave me an early birthday present on Saturday. While I was wandering through Chapters the other day with my lovely cousin Monica who is visiting from the UK, and with my beautiful daughters N&B, Tony disappeared for a little while. This isn’t so unusual for him; he is the typical absent-minded professor type. It’s not annoying at all, no not at all, just to emphasize how not annoying it is. Nope, not annoying. At all.

But all is forgiven because can you guess what he bought for me? If you follow me on Twitter you may have seen this Tweet of mine:

Kobo! Kobo! Kobo!

Yes. Baby. Oh.

I love it so. In black too so as not to be covered in dirty fingerprints. Sigh.

Now I have time to load it up with some beach reads for our upcoming cottage week. I am just so excited.

On another note, care to guess how old I’m turning? I‘m not shy about my age, so take a look at my mug shot and feel free to leave a comment with a guess. I promise I won’t be offended, whether you guess high or low. Here’s a hint though, people are usually surprised when they find out how old I am…

  1. Wow, you'll have to tell us how you like your Kobo.

    As for age, I'm guessing 40 because 1) you don't look it; 2) it's the kind of birthday where you start to wonder how old you look; and 3) I just turned 40 and want more people in the club:)

    BTW, I see you're reading Cellist of Sarajevo – I loved that book. It was one of the ones I wished I had bought instead of borrowed. Interested to know what you think of it.

    Happy happy birthday.

    Based on the information I have and your kids ages and my fantastic guessing skills, I'll say between 38-42. But you do look very young, and could pass for under 30 any day 🙂

  3. Mr. Winston says:

    I will throw all caution to the wind and guess your age to be 36
    I would be surprised if you were older!
    Happy Birthday Finola

    Really now! Absent minded professor? That's a bit much don't you think. I hardly think that… oh, cool! What's that…

  5. XUP says:

    Wow – all those people guessing so old. I would have said early 30s — 32 or 33.

  6. Finola says:

    Denise, I wish I was finding time to play on my Kobo, but once I do I will let you know. And thanks for the wishes 🙂

    A Crafty Mom, Good thinking guessing a range….

    Mr. Winston, Good guess …

    Tony-O, It's a good thing you're cute.

    Xup, Ah that's better. Thank you!
