Sometimes it's just too random for titles. So I'm excited because tonight I am driving over to the school where I was taking my Court Reporting classes last year to meet a current student who might want to buy ALL of my school stuff!! Happy Dance Happy Dance! Oh I hope she buys everything. I'm going to let her use my machine in class tonight for a test drive. And that way even if she doesn't buy it -- all the other students in the class who will be buying machines this spring will get a chance to see it and maybe buy it too! Yippee!
And let me just tell you a few of the reasons why I'm loving the Kindle2...
1. Where ever I go I carry a book to read. HEAVY. Kindle 2 is only 10.2 ounces!
2. Books are bulky. Kindle 2 is just over 1/3 inch thick.
3. When I travel to the beach I take A LOT of books because I read 24/7 at the beach. The Kindle 2 holds 1,500 books.
4. When I'm at the beach or the pool I want to read and it is always a challenge to read and keep an eye on the kids. I am always rereading the same line over and over because I get lost every time I look up. The Kindle 2 has a feature that will turn any book, magazine, or newspaper on your Kindle into a talking book. So headphones in, listen to book and keep BOTH eyes on kids!
5. Bestsellers cost about $28.00. Kindle2 - bestsellers cost $9.99
6. You do not need a computer to use it to download books, magazines, or newspapers. It's wireless so if I'm sitting in the car waiting for a kid -- I can shop, download, and read!
7. Save a tree - you can subscribe to national and international newspapers and magazines and have them on your Kindle in the morning all ready and waiting for you each day.
I bought a book for Kellie because she reads more than I do and she gets bored waiting for her brothers and sisters. Her only issue was that the books are black and white. Her standards are high :O)
Now, I like my craft book obsession so the Kindle 2 will not be saving anything there. I will still be making those purchases in print, but on my normal book/novel reading this is awesome!
The Kindle 2 is F A B U L O U S!!! Love it.
