I love to read. In fact, I probably spend too much time doing just that. At least it's a harmless addiction.

For quite a while I've considered buying myself a Kindle, but I kept putting it off because I just wasn't sure I'd really use it. I'm really not into buying a lot of electronic gadgets. I have cell phone, but all I do with it is make or receive calls. Not really into all the technology that's around.

Any way, Amazon had Kindles on sale & I had received a $20.00 credit for Amazon, so I bought myself one for Christmas. I love it, especially when I'm waiting in line somewhere. Lots of books to download for free out there, too. I did put The Spark on it & several other books that I wanted to have handy. The best part is that I've already used them. Much handier than carrying a book around. Lot less space taken up in my purse, too.

Why didn't you tell me how much I'd like it? I would have gotten it sooner.

    My husband bought me one for Christmas 2011. I didn't think I wanted one - I wanted to be a "purist" and stick to books.

    OMG - how much I love my Kindle.

    The next year I got the Kindle Fire so that I could have some more flexibility. I like the Kindle Fire because it has the back light, so I can read it in bed and not have the light on. But the "regular" Kindle is great for when I'm out in town since it doesn't have the backlight. I do use the Kindle Fire more than my original Kindle, but I love owning them both. Especially when traveling to the mainland, I bring both. I can sync books between then, so if the battery on one dies, I can keep on reading! And even carrying 2 of them still takes up less space then if I were to bring physical books with me.

    Yea Kindles!

    I too got a Kindle for Christmas.....Wayne took it home to get it setup (since I don't have a secure website here at the 'home')....looking forward to using it more after I get settled someplace.

    I was looking to buy some books from Amazon and saw the offer for Kindle but it was only for American residents to buy, so I'll have to wait till it gets across the ocean to Oz.

    Enjoy it sounds great emoticon

    LOL...I was just about to tell you how great it was until I read that you'd bought one! I take mine everywhere and it is great at the gym on machines because I can adjust the font and don't have to be bothered with flipping pages. Gad you are enjoying it!!!

    I am glad you are enjoying this new journey into technology. Myself, I got a Smart Phone just after Thanksgiving and it is smarter than me! I have a long ways to go on my journey.
