I got a Kindle for Christmas!!!

It's kind of a funny story!

I had been wanting a Kindle for quite some time, and unbeknownst to me my loving husband had ordered me one for Christmas!!! When Kyle's Mom & Dad came down, we all went shopping together for Christmas presents (because that is just kind of how they do things!) and they decided they would buy me an e-reader for Christmas!! Kyle somehow managed to convince me that I wanted the Kindle, and he promised he'd order it for me as soon as we got home!! After me begging and begging to order it, Kyle finally gave in, and admitted that he already had!!! It ended up being from Kyle's Mom & Dad, and Kyle got me an equally as exciting "actifry"!!

I LOVE my Kindle. I think the biggest thing I love (and Kyle hates) is the CONSTANT access to books.  They are literally at my fingertips - thanks to the convenient keyboard - and I can be ordering a book anytime, and almost anywhere!!! Although Kyle thinks one day we'll no longer to be able to put food on the table, the books are a great price - thus irresistible!!!


I didn't think I'd like reading off the screen - but within 5 pages - I was over it! It's great that you can change font sizes, change the screen orientation, or have your kindle read to you (in a rather robotic voice) if you get tired of using your own eyes!!! I also love that you can lay it down - on your lap, on your table, or on your treadmill stand - and not have to worry about trying to hold i open!!! 

It's easy to use - so far - no problems!!! I can buy books over the Wi-Fi, or from my computer using the cord!!!

I'm not advertising Kindle over any other brand of e-reader - because the Kindle is the only one I have and know!! From what I have heard from other people who own e-readers - no one is disappointed!!!!

Top 3 things about my Kindle:
1) My Jodi Picoult book was delivered wirelessly to my house the SAME DAY it was released for half the price it cost to buy it in hardcover!!!
2) One click shopping - it goes straight to my credit card.... CHARGE IT!
3) The 9 books I have read since I got it - are not sitting in a pile on the floor since my bookshelf is full.... and furniture shopping has dropped in priority on my To-Do List!!!
