Kindle Touch obsession

Guess what came in the mail today? My early Christmas present, the kindle touch!

I highly recommend the kindle as a holiday present. Check out these specs!

Simple-to-use touchscreen, with audio and built-in Wi-Fi
  • Most-advanced E Ink display, now with multi-touch
  • New sleek design – 8% lighter, 11% smaller, holds 3,000 books
  • Only e-reader with text-to-speech, audiobooks and mp3 support
  • Built in Wi-Fi – Get books in 60 seconds
  • Borrow Kindle books from your public library
  • Exclusive EasyReach touch technology lets you read easily with one hand
  • New X-Ray feature lets you look up characters, historical figures, and interesting phrases. Learn More

I find the kindle touch easy to hold, intuitive to use and lighter than a book. The E Ink is easier to read than my computer screen and it’s quicker to flip to the next page than actual paper! 


As a side effect, I may be blogging less in the near future. I’m 82% done with the third book of the Song of Ice and Fire series, A Storm of Swords, by George R. R. Martin and I cannot wait to read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins soon! 


I’m also excited to use the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library! 


We have a ‘Amazon Prime membership’ and with it ‘Kindle owners can choose from thousands of books to borrow for free – including over 100 current and former New York TimesBestsellers – as frequently as a book a month, with no due dates.’ Learn More

By the way, if you have a kindle, you can start reading The Hunger Games on your Kindle in under a minute

And if you don’t have a Kindle you can download a FREE Kindle Reading App [I’m not trying to promote Amazon, I’m just so obsessed that I have to share it with you all!]
