Is it just me?

I have an older Kindle e-book reader sitting idly on my desk at home. It is a perfectly fine Kindle but I never use it because I have a new one that was said to be better. The new one is, in fact, better. At least I think so.

As soon as I read there was a newer, better device available I got excited. Just like I get excited about the new phone—you know, that new phone that replaced the old new one; the one that was so much better than the new one from before.

Is it just me that gets excited over new?

Some improvements are so significant I can’t imagine living without them. Others seem more excitement than substance. It’s hard to know which is what until you take a stab and try them.

I don’t think it’s just me that gets anxious and excited for the new, the fresh, the inspirational.

What about you?

Now that I think about it, I am really happy I got that new Kindle.
