Yep, that's right...after months of lusting, I finally bit the bullet and bought a Kindle. I hemmed and hawed, agonized over the many choices (Kindle, Nook, Sony, iPad, which size, blah, blah, blah), should I wait for a Kindle color. Finally, after playing with Meg's (DD#1) Kindle for a few weeks, I was hooked. Still, I procrastinated. I gingerly perused the Amazon website....placed it in my cart...finger hovering over the purchase button... press...press...no...close tab. I did this for days and then one day...I did it...I hit the "one click purchase" button and it was done. Two days later, I was in reading Heaven.
I love the feeling of a book in my hands, and thought that would be the thing I'd miss most, but I gotta tell you, I ain't missing that one little bit. I bought the "Official Kindle" cover shown below (got the snazzy apple green) and once you slip the Kindle in there, it opens up just like a book and you get that same feeling.
The weather was so nice over the weekend, I was able to take it outside, slip into a lounge chair and test out the nonglare factor....man does it work. It was bright and sunny, and it felt just like I was reading ink on paper...no glare at all.
Now I just need to pace myself, or nothing will get done...no laundry, no cooking, no work....I've had it for less than 4 days and am on my second book...easy does it old girl.
