Book conversation with my 12 year old

On March 21, 2010 by Aimee

Me : “I want a Kindle”
Him : “What’s a kindle?”
Me : “An e-reader. Like you can read entire books on a computer, of sorts.”
Him : “I like books.” [this is the boy that has a cell phone and texts his friend even when they are sitting right next to each other]
Me : “Me too but I like both. I like the feel of new books, but not old ones. I want the old one on a Kindle.”
Him : “I like to flip back when I remember something. How would you do that on a computer?”
Me : “Good point. I’m sure there’s a way.”
Him : “But you can’t flip with it and have all the paper fan out so you can find stuff. I like books. Will you buy me the next Lightening Thief?”

He’s nearly 13. He likes boooooooks. Paper ones. 🙂 Gotta love him.
