I’ve been distracted

A Kindle is a dangerous toy for a book addict. We found this little white device under our Christmas tree.

I’ve been reading since Christmas day. Kindle books will save space in our house, but I am going to have to set a strict book budget.

Dan says to check your library for e-books. And my inquiring mind wants to know how you hold the kindle in bed to read???

I found it really easy to hold and read in bed. It has a page turner on both sides so whichever way you hold it the pages can turn easily. I was so pleased.

I, too, am tempted to get a Kindle (several friends have them) but since I seem to get most of my books at the Used Book Store, my cost is quite low. And then I share them with friends who share with me and their friends....I can't justify the price of the electronic books. Maybe someday.

I want one. I'm waiting for the competition to kick in and the price to come down! But I'm glad you got one which helps me know even more how much I want one. I have not actually seen one in person, so I love hearing reviews.

They are only just becoming available in Oz. I had understood they were something like ipod & could be listened to, rather than read??
I am so glad you are enjoying yours.

One of the ladies in the Book Group has a Kindle and really enjoys it. However, she does go on excessively about it - I don't even own one and am bored with it. Some books are free - our book for January is anything by Jane Austen, which are all accessible on Kindle without charge - or so she has told us and told us and told.....! Happy reading. Love, Del-at-home

Yes! Isn't it great?! I've downloaded a couple FREE classic books too. Google Free Kindle books and you'll find quite a selection.

I also got one for Christmas. I had been worried about the cost of books, because I had previously gotten mine mostly at garage sales. But DH found a site called feedbooks.com that has thousands of free, legal public domain titles. Bliss, indeed, but I haven't searched for any quilt or textile books yet.
