A few words from the better half…
I just got a new kindle a few weeks ago and I have to say, in my opinion the kindle is like the best thing since peanut butter. Just a few months ago, I had no idea what a “kindle” was. All I could think of was a kindling fire when I heard the word kindle. Then one day I was looking something up on amazon.com. I don’t even remember what it was, but it was some kind of documentary type thing. They had it in book form $24.99, DVD form $17.99 and on kindle $9.99. Excuse me??? $9.99??? What is this kindle? So I start doing some research. I used to be an avid reader. Couldn’t get enough. Then my eyes started going. I just put the books down and that was that.
The only reading I really do now is online news and articles. I have computer glasses that are bifocals for reading also, but it’s too much of a strain to wear them for just reading. I did get some cheap reading glasses and that helps a lot. I read all the reviews on the kindle and became very interested. I have a co-worker that has a kindle dx so I checked it out and was pleasantly surprised on how easy it was on the eyes. Also very easy to use. So, I told my husband I would like one for Christmas. He ordered it, and I received it a few weeks ago. (Early gift). Absolutely LOVE IT!! I got a beautiful leather cover for it and it fits in my purse. (I got the smaller one). I can take it wherever I want. I even ordered a little light to attach to it. I started making a list of books I want to order…and now I’m easy to shop for. Kindle gift card!! I’m good!!
Now when we go RV'ing, I’ll have my little kindle and I don’t have to fill up the RV with books. I didn’t realize how much I missed reading a good book!
