The next thing I noticed. No glare and no eye strain. It's like reading paper. How Amazon did that, I don't know. But it's wonderful.
I left Starbucks determined to buy a Kindle.
Friday night I snuggled into bed with a wonderful book...Gardens of Delight....can't remember who wrote it (sorry!). But as I was reading and turning the pages...and well immersed in reading. I thought...ut-oh I can't get a Kindle. I love books...actual bound print on paper BOOKS.
Saturday...same thing. I'm a paper girl. It's got to be books or nothing. Saturday afternoon. I was spring cleaning. As I shifted books off the nightstand, kitchen table, moved totes filled with books, moved stacks piled on the floor. I stopped. Stared at the books. Had a mini-breakdown. Came to the conclusion that I either needed a bigger house or I absolutely no more books can be purchased. A bigger house means more to clean. I hate to clean. But not buying books. Not so much an option either. Soooooo......
Sunday afternoon I came back to work. Did a little billing. Then logged back onto Amazon to read the forums about the Kindle. There is a 30 day money back guarantee. I have Amazon credits from the Coin Star and gift cards so that brings the price way down for me. Which is great. There are a ton ...... I mean a ton of free books....and books under a $1. Pretty much all the classics are free. So by converting those ...... much room will be freed up on my bookshelves
Monday morning....I ordered it. I have 30 days to try it. I'm going to download a bunch a freebies. And read for a few days on it...not switch back and forth between real books. See if I can get into it. I'm also interested in having my Grandpa try it. He is an avid reader and it's hard to get him to the bookstore/library. He depends on us to pick books for him. If we both had Kindles we could share an account. I like the 'sample' the book option....so he can read a bit, decide if he likes it...before we buy.
I'll let you know after I read on it a while.
