My wonderful, thoughtful husband gave me (among many other things) a hard anodized turkey roaster with rack so I could cook my always 24+ pound turkey at Thanksgiving with ease. I wonder what he thought I HAD been cooking it in? Two might come in handy...you never know.

That certainly doesn't top your story Vera - that's a real classic!!!!

Oh I'll end up with one, bet on it. I love that it does other things, (dictionary etc.) and the fact that I can take it on a plane or anywhere in my handbag without the bulk. When I go to Michigan for the summer I take about 7 or 8 books with me. Usually hard cover and they weigh a ton in my suitcase. If I talk long enough I can convince myself that I NEED one.

You can download books, cookbooks, newpapers etc from anywhere you are, even on a plane.

Go to Amazon.com: Online Shopping for Electronics, Apparel, Computers, Books, DVDs & more and click on "Kindle" on the left side of the page. Watch the video. It's the most awesome piece of electronics since the computer was invented.
