Has anybody taken the technological leap and purchased a Kindle yet?
I like gadgets and I love reading, and so with a little arm twisting I managed to swipe hubby’s credit card and buy one…cough, cough…I’m not always that sneaky…clearing throat once again…well OK then, yes I am.
So back to the Kindle. I can’t wait to receive it, but sadly due to massive ordering and insufficient stock I have to wait until the middle of January 2011 for delivery. It seems a long time to wait, but not really when you consider this past year has taken only about 3 months to complete its full 12 month cycle.
It will of course mean a change of reading habit. I will no longer have to fold a corner to keep my place, or fumble around for a unwanted rates bill to use as a marker. A well overdue rates bill I hasten to add, that hubby will futuristically accuse me of “putting away” when he can’t find it. I in turn will of course feign being horribly hurt, and sneak it back on his desk only to triumphantly find it for him a couple of hours later
Come to think of it, a relaxing read in the bath would now also appear to be a thing of the past, unless I’m prepared to chance an expensive accident that is. Can you just imagine me drooping off and letting it slip to its death beneath a mound of bubbles. Eish! I can just picture my hubby storming the bathroom, snorkel and goggles at the ready. Suffice to say it would probably be nasty.
Anyway, accidents aside, I’m not all that sure what to expect, other than a small piece of wizardry that holds up to 3500 books. Oh yes, and that its battery life is about a month before charging. I can purchase books on line and within minutes they will have whizzed into my living room and onto the Kindle courtesy of my Wi-Fi. What more could a girl want? Well actually, seeing as you ask, maybe a nice Gucci carry bag for it? Hmm, where is my hubby and his credit card?
“Darling, sweety, come here and let me twist your arm a little, can I give you a much needed “
