Did I tell you I got a Kindle for my birthday? I got a Kindle for my birthday. I downloaded all kinds of books off NetGalley.com then wondered if I could download my scriptures, too. I've seen a couple of Ipads at church as well as Ipods. Although not user friendly, I was able to download my scriptures as well as LDS General Conference talks. Then I went to church feeling pretty technologically inclined. Turns out I'm way behind on the trends.
During Sunday school, I counted no less than 10 ipods where my fellow congregation were reading their assigned scriptures. In fact, they were quickly finding their references while I was still fumbling with the different buttons, changing the font, format, and squinting like a little old man.
After church I stopped to talk to my friend, Courtney. She was just typing into her ipod, "tithing settlement" and then, with a tap here and there, changed the day and time and typed in, "Jaxon's scouts."
"Do you keep your scriptures on there, too?"
"Sure. I got the kind you can highlight and includes cross-references." I slowly hid my Kindle behind my back.
At least I have novels to read when the speakers bore me or the Sunday school teacher gets dry. Oh, wait. That's my husband.
It's official, though. I am a technotard.
