Amazon Description: For those with a taste for adventure, there’s a camera as bold as the active life you lead. It’s the Canon PowerShot D10. Waterproof, freeze-proof and shockproof; it’s tough enough to take what you dish out. Plus it’s got all the high performance features you expect from a Canon digital camera. You’ve got 12.1 megapixels of resolution plus all of Canon’s powerful, state of the art imaging technologies so you can capture your epic experiences in breathtaking color and awesome detail.

Me: I have one of these! I would probably like it more if it provided me with RAW files. (It does not, and I did not think to check.) Aside from that it's a pretty good camera though my particular powershot, you have to press the button pretty hard to get it to snap a picture. (Which causes my hand to shake, which causes me to have a blurry picture.)

The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish [Paperback]
Neil Gaiman (Author), Dave McKean (Illustrator)

Price: $7.99 & eligible for FREE Super Saver Shipping on orders over $25.
Amazon Review: It's a graphic short story more than a traditional picture book, by a famous fantasy and comics team. From the front end-flap to the final Fin (and not excepting the copyright page), this is a witty, funny collaboration. Neil Gaiman's grasp of kid-narrative logic and Dave McKean's whimsical layered art tell the story of a dad who "doesn't pay much attention to anything, when reading his newspaper" and the narrator's brilliant idea of swapping him for something more interesting--and of course, the convoluted consequences. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Me: This is a cute story.
