currently coveting

My wishlist is rather long these days. As a means of working through my shopaholic tendencies, I created a college. In random order... tortoise tom ford nikita sunnies, nars' matte lip pencil in dragon lady (best red ever), an ipad mini, grace: a memoir, an old pentax (I'm feeling film cameras as of late), the saddle original flea, pierrepont hicks' blue backseat blanket, marais usa double strap suede flats, j.crew khaki toothpick pants, j.crew's perfect shirt in black watch, a fabulous orange hermes scarf, and lastly... someone to carve a yorkshire pumpkin for my front porch. That's it, really. Happy Sunday!

reading + the ipad

This Slim Aarons photo of Renata Boeck reading the newspaper in bed got me thinking about the reading habits of modern-day Americans. My professor and I were talking about this subject the other day—Americans simply do not read as much as they used to! I believe this is due largely in part to the way we use technology today. I mean, why buy a newspaper when you can find all of the information you need online for free?
I wonder if the introduction of Apple’s iPad (the product is available in stores on April 3rd) will change all of this. My generation was not socialized to sit down and read the newspaper like my grandparent’s generation, but maybe my generation will be more open to reading the newspaper if it comes in a portable electronic format. I think I would. I think I’d read more books, too. What do you think? Do you think that a book loses its integrity if it comes in an electronic format verses a paper one? I would love to hear your thoughts!
