What did you get for Christmas? Ereaders, ebooks?

I got a Kobo gift card and iTunes gift card (iPad books or magazines) so I am totally happy! I did buy a Kobo MINI because it was super cheap ($49) but there are no other readers in the family or friends around me. So...I think i keep it for myself.
What did you get?

I bought myself an iPod Nano 7th gen. Engraved! Yay! I got a whack of ebook gift cards: Amazon, Sony, Kobo & an iTunes gift card. Also got a new Bluetooth headset. Mine was an old cheapo one that hubby hated because he could never hear me. Oh oh oh! The bestest (yes I know there's no such word but it fits) thing I got was a Stones pack. Their 50th anniversary book and the DVD Charlie Is My Darling!! *happy dance*

Where did you find that deal? Was it Black Friday?

Book related gifts in my world -

The Secret Keeper - Kate Morton
The Time Keeper - Mitch Albom
The Black Box - Michael Connelly
The Forgotten - David Baldacci
Notorious Nineteen - Janet Evanovich
The Racketeer - John Grisham
Merry Christmas Alex Cross - James Patterson

My four year old grandson got a Leappad 2 with $150 worth of gift cards. I think apps and books for this thing are overpriced ($20 for a book!) and he would have been better off with an Amazon card to buy books for his Kindle Fire. However, I only post my opinion here since I am a non-interfering Grandma.

My three year old grandson got a newest generation iPod Touch. He already has a Kindle Fire and there are tons of free apps and books for the iPod so it is a little more reasonable. Still, very expensive for a three year old.

Grandma will just stick with sending them good books for their KFs.

Ugh! I hate missing out on a bargain. That's almost half price. Shopping for deals is a sport for me, whether I need the item or not.

I got books that I requested in hardcover (I specifically said I didn't want these books as ebooks; I want to keep them in my permanent library) and I got a variety of green teas for brewing my daily tea.

The only electroinic thing I received was the Celestron SkyScout Personal Planetariun. It seems like it will be a wonderful device if I can figure out how to install the drivers for it. They don't tell you in either the description or on the packaging that the drivers are incompatible with 64-bit Win7.
