LOL. I suppose I should call mine that, too. I sometimes call him my bigger half, though he is also better in many, many ways. You can definitely tell his side of the bed. It's piled high with books even though he also has a Kindle. He still pulls his old favorites off the shelf from time to time and there they stay until I get frustrated and put them all back. There was a crash in the wee hours this morning. His Kindle and a bunch of books had been knocked to the floor by a curious kitten. Luckily both Kindle and kitten survived. This has not in any way sparked the notion in him that he should clear the stuff up.

Oh, and since it's the law that all posts discussing kittens must have their pictures, here he is. His name is Virgil.

You have forced me to spend money, I HATE that if it is not on camera gear anymore.

I used to, until the seem to have cut the size of a decent tub by at least 50%...all I know is for me a bath requires a shoehorn, a couple pry bars and a thimble of water because that is all the room left in there...

Anyway, here is what I ordered for her and it will be arrive on Monday:

And all is apparently not lost after all, somehow a new NattyG camera strap ended up in my cart...and it is just the one I wanted:

Which attaches to this camera pack and take all the weight of whatever rig I am using at that microsecond:

Sooo, maybe now I can get that new zoom lens I have been after...who knows? And, oh yeah, the two primes I "need" as well...hahahaha...actually I am allowed any gear I want, but don't tell her that...remember the old adage "....I hope she never has to sell this stuff because if she prices it based on what I tell her it costs...YIKES!!..."

Now I want an aquapac too. I have seen which size to get for a Kindle or Sony eReader, but I have an iRex iLiad V2 and don't know which size to get. Has anyone purchased one for an iLiad?

I used to read my books on the throne. This would result in me having 2 or 3 books on the go (one upstairs, one downstairs and one in my bag for the train). This of course would result in me spending extended periods of time in the bathroom and getting a numb bum!

Since I have bought my reader, I tend to only read magazines now. I can't afford to have a reader for each location

My ex read in the bathroom - Every time he went. It got to the point I was extremely grateful the house had a half bath, cause that was all I ever got to use. I normally don't read in the bathroom, I can't read in the tub, never could - either the pages would get wet or I'd be afraid of dropping the book, now with the ebook reader it's too precious to take a chance with, even with an aquapac. I don't necessarily think it's weird - it's just something I'm not in the habit of doing myself.

Yes, I do. With my wife thinking that I can read and pay attention to her talking at the same time, this place offers me good privacy.
