A Present to Me

Well, I did it last night and ordered a Kindle 3G reader, a Kindle jacket, and a light from Amazon

When the Internet went 24/7 back in the early 1990's,  I started getting the news online. Research is at your fingertips and a snap online.  I simply quit reading books and dropped all magazine subscriptions because about sixty percent plus is advertising. If I was interested a magazine article, I could usually find it online.  In addition, I detest all those card inserts.  Tearing out those cards is annoying.  I also have 6 bookcases filled with books and really need to donate most of them to the library, throw them away, or at least hold a garage sale.  The library is about 15 minutes away but never seem to find the time or desire to go. 

The ease of the Kindle appeals to me along with the fact there is no clutter.  I can hardly wait.  The Kindle is due to arrive in early March.  Happy present to me.  :D

Until next time, God bless.

Congratulations! I don't have a Kindle as I have a Canadian version called a Kobo, which I LOVE! :)

Books are becoming a problem for me too, I haven't anymore space for all the books my daughter and husband buy. I think this device would really solve our problem. I hope you'll enjoy your present.

You will enjoy it. I have the Kindle2 and use it all the time. I was undecided at first, but it is so nice to get a new book in a matter of seconds. I hope they come out with a color version one day so I can upgrade. The Kindle 2 does not have WiFi, but the whispernet works fine for me.
