Hmmmm. This is like trying to pick from a menu at a good restaurant. So, I think I’ll take 13 tips, and 50 things under 50 bucks. Thanks for finding and posting these.

I'll have to go with iPhone as eReading Device. I chose not to have my book available as an eBook for now. But that may quickly change as a number of people have asked for one. They like to download books to their iPhones and read that way. A sign of the changing time. I'm keeping this particular article in one of my favorite folders.

Great links! I always enjoy Friday Finds.

Galen - Lol!! Hope you find some good info

Stephen - I've been an ereader for over ten years, and while I still love paper books, you can't beat ereaders for convenience and portability. I can carry a hundred or more books in my pocket with my iTouch - and if I'm reading something racy, no one will EVER know it. Plus - I can also put good articles and blog posts on there as well

Alexis - I love to do these posts. It's a lot of fun keeping my eyes open for good links.

I love Garrison Keillor. I'll link over and go look at his. Okay! I give in. I'll go look at the caterillars, too.
