The holiday season is upon us, but while many of us are enjoying our Thanksgiving days off by sleeping in and relaxing, there are some that brave the cold weather and dark skies among long lines and anxious attitudes in hopes of getting their hands on the best deals of the year.

If you're one of those brave Black Friday shoppers, we would like hear from you. Please send us you photos along with your name, location, and a brief comment about your experience to MyTown@wzzm13.com for our My Town Black Friday photo gallery to be published early next week.

Until then, good luck and safe shopping!!

Have you been wondering about the "Kindle"?

I grew up in the small town of Coopersville where many times throughout the year there is nothing to do.  That is when I turned to books. I would buy them from Family Fare or I would go to the library to get a book. I still ran into problems at the library. If I wanted a popular author that had a new book that just came out, I would be put on a waiting list for however long it took for the people in front of me to finish reading it. I read very quickly so I would get frustrated by the wait.  I have found a lot of great authors by reading their current book. Then I decide I want to read everything they ever wrote. Some of those books are from years ago and libraries just don't carry them anymore.
