I  will admit that I am addicted to my Ipad.  I read  ebooks off of it, connect with my email, Facebook and various social media, blog,  take quick photos, utilize it for library duties, even give Accelerated Reader tests to my students  on this device.

Sometimes I prop it  up in the my kitchen (carefully)  to cook from, or watch a cooking demo by my hero , Martha Stewart.  All the while, nervous of errant splatters, or granular sugar scratches appearing on the screen.  Ultimately, I prefer my traditional paper cook books, many of which are stained with flour and memories of the dish and the occasion it was prepared for. Or with whom is was prepared with……often I think of my Grandmother Rivier when I pull out her  cookbook and read her hand written notes in  the various margins.   See previous post, click here.

Thankfully, Williams and Sonoma are keeping up with the societal shift to the Ipad, by offering a kitchen stand,    blue tooth speaker   and  splatter screen cover  in their Christmas sales catalog.  Tech savy cooks can consult a recipe , watch/listen to   cooking demos,  crank on a tune from their  Spotify channel…and perhaps a panicked  Facetime  consultation with Mummy  (in Canada)  when  the yeast is not rising properly….all while whipping up  supper…without fears of cooking spatters on said electronic device.

Further proof of  the Ipad’s cemented  integration into our daily lives.  Maybe,  I would like one?  St. Nicholas, are you reading this?

While I am a librarian , I am a reading cheerleader. The purpose of this library blog is to better promote reading and information literacy to community. I love books, reading to my son,properly placed apostrophes,canoeing, locating the nearest Starbucks, cheering the Montreal Canadians, and Cherry Garcia ice cream.
