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 :)
