Kindle

The Amazon Kindle, I love it. Mimi (my girls' grandmother) mentioned the Kindle to me over FaceBook one day. I made a post on my wall about a book that I was reading, she replied asking me if I had a Kindle. Well at the time I had NO idea what a Kindle was, I had never heard of it before. After Mimi mentioned the Kindle to me I started doing some research and absolutely fell in love with the idea of the Kindle. My initial thought was that I wanted to get one for my fiance in Iraq, because it would be perfect for him. He would not have to wait for weeks to receive books that I mailed to him. The ability for him to just download them to his computer and then onto the Kindle. I told him about it and finally convinced him (at first he didn't want to spend the $$) that we needed to get him one. My Lou he knows me so well because as I was describing to him how "neat" I thought the Kindle was and how excited I was for him to get one he realized I would just LOVE to have one. Right then and there (we were on the computers chatting over The Amazon Kindle, I love it. Mimi (my girls' grandmother) mentioned the Kindle to me over FaceBook one day.

My Lou he knows me so well because as I was describing to him how "neat" I thought the Kindle was and how excited I was for him to get one he realized I would just LOVE to have one. Right then and there (we were on the computers chatting over Skype) he put in another order for a second Kindle to be sent to me! I was elated and he even topped it off with having it shipped next day, woo hoo!!!! Well of course you can imagine my next wall post on FaceBook (at the time I hadn't started blogging) yep all about my Kindle. I got the Kindle and I can honestly say I love it. I love the fact that if I finish up a book in a series and I want the next one (because it may not be convenient for me to head to the store- with kids or depending on the time of night) I can just order it and get it immediately! Don't get me wrong I still enjoy going to the bookstore shopping for books or to the library to check out books, but I love the options that the Kindle brings me. I recently downloaded a book recommended from one of the blog sites I follow and it was only $1.99 for the book, how great is that! You can also get samples of the books to see if it is something that you would even be interested in buying. To anyone out there that might be reading this and considering this purchase, I unequivocally 100% say YES, go for it, it's wonderful!!!!

Journey with Technology,
