The Amazon Kindle

Boy was I spoiled this year for Christmas! Not only did I get a FANTASTIC gift from my husband (who really out did himself and spoiled me!) I received many wonderful gifts from family members too. One gift that I have spent many time on is my Kindle. As many of you know, I am pretty serious about reading...I never go without a book that I am "right in the middle of." The Kindle is the perfect solution to my overstocked bookshelf!

Not only can it store up to 1500 can also download magazines, newspapers..and yes...BLOGS!! (I have downloaded a wide range...any where from all of the Twilight first 'Pride and The one of my favorite blogs.) In the long run, it will save us some money because the books are cheaper to purchase. You can also download a sample of the book for FREE! (Some books are completely free too!) The Kindle is small in size, light weight, and easily fits in my 'mega' purse with room to spare! I can go on and on about how much I love my Kindle! (I won't go into all of the features...such as web access, immediate downloading, dictionary access, audio options, not to mention saving some trees by 'going green', etc, etc!) Here is my Kindle in comparison to my...ahem....magazine.

Now...don't get me wrong, I am IN LOVE with my Kindle. However there are some situations that it is better to have an actual book than the Kindle. For instance, I love to take a bath and read in the bath...Kindle in the bath? Not a good idea! Also, I want to instill in my children the love of reading and what better way to do that than to have them SEE their mother reading a book? To Big C...the Kindle looks like a big cell phone. I still get out books to read so that he sees me with a book. I also wouldn't take a Kindle to the beach...sand and water, enough said! AND...I must admit...the book worm/nerd in my loves the smell of new books! I can still loose my self in a book store for hours just browsing!

On a side note, Big C had his big birthday party to come soon!
