Birthday Again

So it’s time for my birthday again and I’ve been asked for some ideas. This year, I would like to buy a Kindle, mainly to replace buying hardcover Cisco study books. I’d love it if everyone would get BestBuy gift cards as that would allow me to buy the Kindle and make up the difference on my own. There are plenty of other fun gifts to ask for, but of all of the things I need, the Kindle fits the bill. I guess it falls in to the category–something I want/need but won’t buy on my own–but I’ll probably buy anyway.

I know this sounds a little weird to announce on my blog, but I know many of my family reads this so I’ll make it easy on everyone. I’m not normally a gift card kind of guy, but just this once, I’d like to ask for an exception. OK?
