My wonderful boyfriend, Whitney, bought me an Amazon Kindle as a late Birthday present. They were on sale for Mothers day. I had bought the second book in the Hunger Games series at Barnes and Noble, but hadn't had a chance to get into the book, so I took it back and bought it on my Kindle. So much cheaper that way. Less than half the cost. I actually got into it today. Not far at all, but at least I got it started. I have the third book already from the library, so I have to get done with this one before the other has to go back!
So back to the Kindle. It's super cool. If you are unsure of a word while reading, which happens to me all the time, and I just guess what it means based on the sentence, you can just move the cursor next to the word and the definition pops up. I think that is so cool! You can also browse the internet, but it's a little tricky. I am not sure I would do that much unless it was the only way I could access the internet from where I was. You can book mark pages, make notes, and highlight passages. You can read more than one book at a time, and it holds your place in each for you. I just think the whole idea is super fun. I was afraid the screen was going to be kind of dull or something, and hard to read. Totally not the case. It's a white screen with a textured surface so that there isn't a glare when you are reading. It's really light and fits well in your hands. It's a little smaller than I thought it would be, but when I got to thinking about it I realized it's about the size of a book. It supposed to be able to hold a charge for up to a month! Amazing!
In any case, I really like it! I LOVE IT! Thanks babe!
