Lots of reading to do

After a busy last couple of days, Hubby and I are spending our evening relaxing and reading about our new Kindle!!!  


I just got her all registered, and when I turn it on it says "Kelsey's Kindle!"  Gabe better keep his filthy paws off it, jk!  I have only gotten as far as reading the manual on the device, and the technology seems super fancy and easy to navigate.  Who would have thought electronic paper would have caught on like it did.  Who needs to go out on a Saturday night when you have a new toy to play with and good company

I can't wait to order my first book!!!

Do you have a Kindle 
and/or know any tricks for free books?!?

I just sold my Kindle for the ipad! But I did really enjoy it. I say to make sure and order one of those fancy leather binders for it and the book light from M-edge.
Free Book this week in the Kindle store is "Living Organized".
You will really enjoy the ease of ordering a book instantly instead of driving somewhere to get it!
Also if you have an iphone there is a kindle app that syncs with kindle to always keep your bookmarks.
Dont forget to join goodreads.com if you havent already!

My husband got me my Kindle for Christmas, and I love it! I read all the time, so it's nice to not weigh my purse down with books! I always check out the Kindle's best seller books because it will sometimes have free books on there. I think it also features a free book each month. My husband had to set me on a limit though each month because it is cheaper than buying a new book (most times) but not when you buy 4 or 5!

Hope you enjoy it!

I don't read, but I think if I got one of these I would read...Let me know what you think of it...

My mom has one and cannot stop raving about the thing.... I am still a bit old-fashioned and like to read in paper form. But perhaps one of these days I will give in and get with the times!!

Have fun with it!

Annie said...

Ooooo I'm so jealous!I want a Kindle so bad! I saw this women at a meeting with one recently and I have been wanting one ever since. Hopefully I will get one for my birthday next month.

How fun! :) I've been toying with the idea of getting a Kindle for a little while now! I uploaded Mobipocket Reader onto my BlackBerry, and have been using that, but I'm thinking a Kindle would blow it out of the water... You should definitely do a review post!

P.s. I love that American Girl is your ringtone for Gabe--- so cute! Made me smile, too!! :)
Have a wonderful Sunday enjoying Gabe and your new little friend!!

I got the Kindle App for my iPod touch. I love it. I have found many great books including Pride and Prejudice :)

I live in Skagit County on Fidalgo Island (Tulip's are all gone now) and found you via Blooming in Bainbridge's blog.

It is always nice to find local people. I am now following your blog.

Blessings, LaVonne!

I sadly don't have one, but I have thought about buying one!

Enjoy your new toy :)!

I got one for Christmas and absolutely love it! It is absolutely great for when I travel, my bags have gotten so much lighter since they aren't stuffed full of books! Definitely invest in a good case for it though! Love your blog!!

I don't have one but I've been thinking about buying one. I'm worried I would miss paper books. You'll have to update in a couple of weeks and let us know how you like it!

So fun! One of my good friends has a book coming out in a few months - you should download it! :)

Stephanie said...

I got a Nook for Christmas - Barnes and Noble's version of the Kindle. I cannot say enough good things about it - I love to read series books so its fabulous when you finish reading a books and you can buy the next one in the series right away without even leaving the house!!

Brittany said...

I don't have one but really want one! I may have to give in soon and get one :-)

Neely said...

Sooooo fun! Enjoy it!!!

Oh I am jealous!!! You will have to tell me if you love it?!

I have one and I LOVE it! A lot of free books are featured on the Kindle homepage, and a lot of the classics are free or really cheap.

I just finished "I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti" and really enjoyed it--it's the typical single-girl-can't-find-love memoir, but sprinkled with her forays in the kitchen. Best part, it includes recipes! I was pretty hungry after finishing that book.

There's a Kindle app for the BlackBerry too--you must download it!

If you need other book recommendations, let me know. I've been sick over the past few days and I've been clicking away on my Kindle a LOT.

Let me know how you like it.

MAT said...

Thank you for the comment on my blog! I love the fact that you can sample a book before you buy it, it really helps with the "why did I buy this?" scenario!

meredith said...

you're gonna love your kindle!!

Jax said...

aghhhhhhhhh!!! I want one so badly! I cant wait to hear how you like it!!!

Brown Girl said...

So cool, future MIL has one and she really likes it. Hope you enjoy it and good luck on finding some free reads!!

Cassie said...

That's awesome! I can't decide whether to get a Kindle, Nook, or iPad...so many options!

Jenny DB said...

so how much are these ebooks? I hope a lot less than a real book. somehow i feel like its cheating electronically, and i love the feeling of turning pages. we'll see if i convert though :)

I don't have a Kindle. I have a Nook from B&N. I love it!

Nicole Z said...

I got a Kindel for my birthday and LOVE it! I found a ton of free books an Amazon , most of them are classics (Pride & Prejudice, Sherlock Holmes, etc) but who doesn't love them? Plus, getting books on your Kindle is so much faster and cheaper than going to a store!

Enjoy it!! :):):)

My hubby got a Kindle for Christmas (because he asked for one) and hasn't even taken it out of the box. I am going to steal it from him!!

OceanDreams said...

What a cool gadget, you will have to let us know how you like it. Enjoy your first book that you choose!
