Love this list. It's also really great for getting ideas for the males in my life! Why are they always the hardest to shop for?!

Everything I would want on a trip. Can you shop for me? Actually, if I got the laptop, I wouldn't need the DVD player. I read a lot of books but still am not sold on a Kindle. I like the feel of a book in my hand and I wonder if Kindle qualifies as one of those devices that they make you shut down on the plane during takeoff and landing, One of these days I will try one.

Hey Michael, you should try Kindle for PC,to see if you could get used to the idea of reading a whole book on a screen.
