While watching the Golden Globes, and messing around on my iPad, I swiftly touched the “Notes” app so I could add another movie to my “Must Watch List”.

That’s right, a list of movies to watch…saved on my iPad.

My closest friends and family know that I love the feel of a good magazine cover (that one is for you Rev Jo Jo). I love having shelves filled with books that have perfectly in tact binds, despite having been read. And…for the last 15 years, I have maintained a beautiful, burgundy paisley covered address book. So, with some hesitation, I have a confession. I have converted.

Address books, magazines, newspapers…they are all artifacts of my previous life. Now, everything I do is electronic. I never thought it would happen, but it has. I have converted.

The little tablet called the iPad, is revolutionary. It’s creators are shear genius. I can’t imagine even dreaming something this cool, let alone, making it come to life. I am up to date on EVERYTHING going on in the world, thanks to my NPR, CNN, and NY Times apps. And now, I am multi-tasking like no other. Sending emails, posting updates to fb, and checking the balance of my checking account. I am organized…for real.

So, to my brothers and sisters of the Church of Paper and Books “c’mon in boys (and girls), the water is fine”.
