We all know that Christmas time is months away but I love to get working on my Christmas list early. This year, who knows where I will be for Christmas. I might have a job in a different state, be living somewhere else in NC or still stuck in my hometown but since we don't know if I will be asking for apartment decor and kitchen gadgets here are a few things I have been eyeing but haven't taken the plunge to buy. Maybe they will be Christmas gifts, who knows!
1. An e-reader. If you met me in real life you would know that I have struggled over the e-reader debate. In most of my English classes at UNC it would always come up: books vs. digital text. I am a hardcore fan of holding a book in my hand and as you can see in my bookshelf organization post you know I am crazy about books. So to be practical I am hoping to get a Nook Simple Touch with Glow. No, I do not want to blog, play games or anything else. I simply want an e-reader for vacations, the gym, and for those times when I want to grab a book without the trip to the library or bookstore (yes, my county library has a digital library collection. It's great.) If you knew me in real life you would also know that I require any purse I purchase have the capacity to hold a paperback book. I take a book with me everywhere and it is time to upgrade. But we all know I will still have to go to the library, but maybe not 10 books checked out at a time. :) My Mom loves her nook color but I think the simple nook with glow for my late nights reading is the perfect decision for me. It looks just like a real book but slimmer and more compact.

5. A nice purse. I want something that is classic that I will have for years so I am looking probably at a leather tote that zips. I want it to be the perfect work or everything bag. Simple, classic and elegant. This might have to become my birthday present but who knows. I am thinking brown since I still have my large black Le Pilage Longchamp that will last a little while longer after two years of heavy textbook abuse. Here are some that I have been eyeing.
