Love my new KINDLE2




Today has been a day! Being home for such a short period I had many appointments to make and wanted to get the majority of them done in 1 day so that I wouldn't be away from the kids soooo....I was able to make most of them for today and left early this morning with my phone and my new kindle2.

As I mentioned a few days ago my sweet husband purchased this as a surprise for me when we returned from Florida. I tend to read quite a few books at one time and carry all of them in my purse! I am never sure what I will want to read... it depends on my mood. Right before I left for Florida I found out I have a tear in my rotator cuff and need to have surgery. So since that isn't possible right now my husband wanted to help lessen the load in my purse (he is soo very thoughtful, plus I have wanted one for quite a while too!)

Well, the kindle2 will do so many things ~ read to you, bookmark your pages, highlight passages for you, PLUS download a new book in 60 seconds for less than what I would pay at any Walmart, Sams or Barnes and Noble! Oh ya! Listen to this! IF you have an IPHONE, you can also download the KINDLE app and if you are reading a book you can click on that app and begin reading where you left off on your kindle!! Needless to say I REALLY like it! I have been impressed with their customer service to. The first night I had it, I downloaded a book by accident and didn't even realize it until I saw it on my online banking so I called and asked if it was possible to get a refund. Guess what? For any book I purchase I am allowed 7 days and if I decide to return it, no problem, just call and ask and they will gladly refund and remove it from your Kindle library! NICE HUH!

My husband researched all of the e-readers and after all that he read, it was confirmed that overall the Kindle2 was the best option and then Amazon had come down 100$ since they had released a new Corporate version.

It has been awesome so far and I know that when I have more time and am back in Florida I will be more acquainted with it but anyone looking into it, I am highly recommending it! I also have to thank my friends Clif and Sally who are independent book reviewers and recommend books often on their blogs! I am very interested in being a book reviewer but now I guess I must find out if doing that on a Kindle2 is an option :)


Love and blessings to you!

Loren,

That is too funny. My hubby's co-worker, a male, had one sitting at our kitchen table the other night while waiting to leave for a job. I asked how much he loved it and he just raved about all the cool things you can do, even enlarge the print for us hard to read people.

I will wait for now for the price to become a bit more affordable and then we will see. There is something I love about turning pages for real, and just underlining or highlighting things I need.

Sorry to hear that you had a torn rotator cuff. Hope you're not in so much pain. That sounds interesting. Haven't even heard about Kindle. But if you're a bookworm, that's a great thing. Rather than lifting a lot of books, you can just carry it in that compact gadget. How sweet of your hubby! But you deserve it, too.
I'll pray for your shoulder and take care sister. God bless you and hope to hear more about your reading adventures...wireless style :) Love you in Christ.

Oh girl, I'm so SORRY to hear about you needing surgery!!! Bless your heart. Just made me want to cry. You're going through enough! Will be praying for you.

The Kindle2 sounds fabulous. I'm gonna be throwing around major hints these next few months before Christmas. :)

Take care. Try to get some rest in there.

Your husband sounds like a caring and wonderful man. Thinking even of your love and desire to read books and knowing that carrying them would be hard on you, he made a way for it to be a little easier on you. How sweet! Sounds like something that God would do!
You are blessed!
Enjoy the rest of your week,
Christy

Hi, Loren:
Thanks for the teaching; I am not familiar with The Kindle2. Sounds ideal. I'm praying for your healing and always for your Dad.

What a sweet gift from hubby. It sounds like a very fun piece of technology! So... I'm not the only one who reads more than one book at a time... good! ;) Sorry to hear you have to have surgery!!

Love & Blessings,

This one sounds like the right fit for this busy gal.
I'll have to check it out on Amazon.

That is so cool. I've never seen anything like that. But that really doesn't mean anything because I'm so behind on things! LOL.
Can I borrow it? LOL Just kidding.
Hugs to you sweet friend.
still praying for your Dad!

Hi Ms. Loren! I have to get up with the current times because I did not know that there was such a thing! I tend to carry alot of things around with me as well, Bible, notebook, and sometimes two books at a time.

Also, my sister's name is Loren! We pronounce it as if it were Lorraine. How do you pronounce yours?

Nice to meet you and I will be back, things look pretty inviting over here!

smooches,
Larie
