I may have mentioned this before - or maybe it was on Facebook - I'm old and get confused often, but anyhoot, about a week or so before Christmas the Evil Twin told me that he wanted to get me a Kindle, but he wanted me to choose the one I liked best.
So, I did some research (I LOVE research!)(no, I really honestly do.) and decided on the Kindle Fire.
I had to wait until Christmas morning to open it and amidst the chaos and holiday mayhem, I didn't really get a chance to play around or use it much.
However, since the kids have been back in school and the Evil Twin is back at work, I have been a downloadin' fool.
All the classic books, most of which I've read, are free. But, I downloaded a few of those I really loved anyway. It'll be nice to have them on hand.
It's been such a long time since I've had good opportunities to read a book uninterrupted, so this is just amazing for me. I can also watch movies, download music and I'm not sure what else. I'm wondering if it can clean my kitchen. :-)
Anypoodle, I love to read and having several books at my disposal at all times is wonderful.
At first, I was a little worried it wouldn't be the same as a REAL honest-to-goodness-turn-the-pages BOOK. But, it's actually quite enjoyable and the fact that it's portable makes it even more appealing.
In the past, if I knew I'd be waiting for something (a kid, a tire change, a doctor), I might have thrown a magazine in my purse...IF I even thought about it. Now, I just fling "The Bookie" in my bag and I'm good to go.
But, the Evil Twin may have had a lapse in judgment because I love searching around for new books or movies, and then enjoying them in my "not so free time". Ooops.
So, if you come to my house and you see a dust bunny or two, blame the Kindle. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!! :-)
Happy Monday, hooligans!
