I got my 1st Kindle from my husband & have updated twice. I take it everywhere with me & love how easy it is to read or play games wherever I am. Sure makes waiting in doctor's offices or long lines more pleasant. I currently have the Kindle Fire and love to play MaJong, Star Wars Angry Birds & Scrabble. I also do a lot of reading. I found a great author Dana Stabenow that writes about a female Alaskan native PI names Kate Shugak. I highly recommend these to anyone who loves a good mystery. I got the 1st one free & purchased everything all the rest of the series
I recently bought a Kindle Fire (before the HD one came out...ARRRRRGH! Anyway, I've had trouble setting up WiFi, so I haven't got to use it yet. When I do, I know I will love it!
I love real books, but they are heavy in my purse, and they get heavy in my hands, sometimes. That's the main reason I bought the Kindle. I can't wait to weigh in on this group"s conversations and recommendations for books to read. ;)
When they first came out I didn't like the idea of e-readers. I'm old-fashioned; I like the feel and smell of the printed page, the weight of a book in my hands. But now that I'm in my dotage (just turned 65!) every time I pick up a book I fall asleep! This makes it hard to return library books on time when it takes weeks, sometimes months, to finish one. (And to think I used to read three or four books a week!) So I toyed with the idea of trying an e-reader. I could buy the book at a cheaper rate than in the bookstores or even sample one and there would be no hurry about finishing it. The rest is history. I bought a Nook Color and I absolutely love it. I'm currently reading Jonathan Kellerman's latest, "Victims," and taking it at my own, slower, pace. What can I say? I'm in love!
I was never much of a reader until a few years ago, I finally found a series I loved and read it. this last mothers day I got a nook, and I think, for me, i would so much rather read on it, I think it is because I have a 4yr old who loves books too and she is always moving my book mark, with my nook i dont have to worry about that :) I am working on the last sookie stackhouse book right now, its pretty good, but what I am wondering what would be a good author to read next, I have already read Stephanie Meyer and EL James ...any ideas ?? Someone that is not super mushy, I like the "out there" reads ...Thanks for your help :)
