We're late morning and afternoon matinee people in this household, too.
I grab the "senior snack' with popcorn, small drink and very small candy for $4.99.
Me = Happy Camper

The odyssey you describe is cool in your transformation to reading on tablets. I think it was really cool what you could do for your father and mother-in-law and help them enjoy to read again with their eyesight issues. I didn't realize that e-readers could do all that for people.

You couldn't pay me to buy a theater. Every time I go there's only like 10 people.

I love going to the matinee showings precisely because of the few people there. I love having free reign (almost) as well as the cheaper price of the tickets.

I just did... 12 variant products all listed tonight. We'll see how it goes but I fully expect these to be sold out before Christmas.

I used to be like you and only wanted the print book.
I hear ya though.
I miss the smell of a new book.
I used to have books in my car, in every room of the house and in my purse.

I bought my first eBook reader and was hooked. (it was a Kobo just like the article mentions WMart is using)

Years ago escalated to a Kindle Fire 7.
But didn't like that the fire wasn't backlit.
I've had my Kindle Paperwhite for three (or is it four?) years.

One of the reasons I immediately liked it was I don't have to have my readers on to read.
Font size?
Background not white?
Sepia, please.
Yep, I can choose my font, too.
Online dictionary?
The ability to read others notes on the book while on my Kindle?
Can I use my local library to download books?
Do I have alot of ebooks I've purchased online outside of Amazon on my Kindle?
At least 500+ books I email to my Kindle and write convert in the subject.

Now, they are all on my Kindle in one place. (1800 and counting)
I have books that were published last week.

I have a crazy amount of classics because they are free on the public domain.
There are so many classics that should in my opinion be read over and over.
My stacks and stacks of books are pared down to one bookcase (to house my favorites) and one case that houses my cookbooks. (those are going to my son the chef...eventually)

I still buy 'touchable' books, but much more sparingly.
I just purchased two coffee table books that I wouldn't have purchased for my Kindle and yes, I am 'reading' those and the photo's in those books are well worth the price.

My motherinlaw (RIP) had macular degeneration and we could work the Kindle book to where in her late stages before going blind, she could read them.
My father (RIP) with a really large font could read his civil war history books.
Both had accepted the fact they would never be able to read again, even large print books didn't work.
But the e-reader gave them pleasure.

I am old fashioned. I want a physical book to read. Never did care for reading a book on a computer much. If what I'm reading is a report of some kind, I'll go to campus and print it out there (only nice perk about being an adjunct use of copy sucks).

I'm doing really well so I can't complain. But seeing all these "woe is me" threads makes me want to rub it in. I'm trying to be a calmer, gentler Leroy this time around. I doubt it will stick, but at least I'm trying. :)

Yes, we did receive early notifications in previous years, albeit not as many and not as early as this year.
