iPad or Other Electronic Gismo that Contains Books
"I like stories with magic powers in them. Either in kingdoms on Earth or on foreign planets. Usually I prefer a girl hero, but not always." I should really memorize this line from the enchantingly quirky Moonrise Kingdom so that I can respond to people who ask about my reading habits.
Portable Power for Electronics
While it wouldn't help me since I'm usually near electrical access, I really want to buy and try a BioLite CampStove for those rare times when I am without electrical power. Heck, I remember there being a blackout in San Diego on the opening day of the NFL season last year. With this little guy I could have powered some piece of electronics long enough to watch the entire game. Here is the link to where one can purchase such a device.
Based on looks alone, I want one;
the fact that the BioLite does stuff is just a bonus.
Who doesn't think that expensive electronics, the dirt and grime of being outdoors and open flames shouldn't be combined?
