washing coats

Step 1 in packing for Germany... washing and packing coats. We've begun the packing process. Saturday morning Katey and I went through the process of washing up the coats we bought for everyone to wear in Germany (Christmas 2009). I put them in a bag and discovered they take up nearly a full suitcase. We'll be wearing coats tied around our waist. Before this is over we may be wearing multiple layers of clothing. Yes, we want to avoid extra bag fees, but also we just don't have enough people capable of wagging 50lbs through customs.

I keep looking at the Kindle for book reading purposes for myself, school, and my avid young reader. The weight of books limits what we can take. Laurel found out she could have books in seconds and so now she is sold on the idea even using Kindle PC. Now if she only could pay for them....

I am madly, desperately in love with my Nook. My problem with the Kindle is that the battery is not user replaceable and that you have to pay to use your own books. With a Nook you can use your own books on a MicroSD card and the battery is removeable and replaceable (and pretty inexpensive too) I bought an extra battery, charged both, and made it through a week in California without using my charger.
