These are a few of my favorite things:
K is for Kindle.
Okay. I’ve had some rather loooong posts of late, so today will be relatively short. Kind of. We can only hope. ☺
I love books. Always have and always will. Nothing can replace a good book. Or going to a bookstore and buying a book that you’ve been looking forward to, or one that you just came upon quite by accident. Either way…nothing can compare to cracking open a brand new book. The glory of it all!
That’s why I went back and forth about getting a Kindle. I really wanted one, for the ease and convenience, but I didn’t want to risk being “one of those” who caused the downfall of real books. But I did really want a Kindle! ☺
I wouldn’t spend that money on myself though, and didn’t really have it to spend. That’s why I was completely and totally surprised when I was opening gifts on my birthday and…
|I got a Kindle!|
Still…nothing can compare to a book, but it is so much easier to carry a Kindle in my purse (don’t like to risk bending up a book by carrying it in my purse). Sometimes my life is hurry and wait and having a book right there waiting and ready when I need it is the absolute best.
Another great thing is that my Kindle was so easy to set up and start using. There was nothing to it! I’ll admit that I was a little worried since I’m…a bit technology challenged. This thing? I turned it on and started using it. It really was that easy!
I do have one problem though, if you can call it that. I have a hard time spending money on the Kindle so I’ve downloaded mostly free and very inexpensive books. Plus, sometimes I can get a real book cheaper than on the Kindle and sometimes I just plain want the book version.
But I really do love my Kindle. And now I’m done.
