Well I have entered the Kindle era. It is still kind of unbelievable. After I set my Time Capsule up (yay Apple for giving me a replacement) I started reading up on the Kindle. I am one of those people that has to read all the instructions so it took me a while before I really started playing with it. I just went on a shopping spree on Amazon. Luckily I was mostly shopping for free public domain books. I made one purchase of a Bill Bryson book.
Now we will see. One of my hesitations about buying the Kindle, Nook or any eReader was whether or not I would really read with it. My reading has fallen off so horribly the last few years thanks to the distractions that the internet offers. Actually I do read, it is just that I'm reading articles and blog posts, not books. I feel like my attention span for books has dropped which is a sad, sad thing. I have heard people say over and over again how they read so much more with their Kindles/Nooks/Sonys but $250ish was a lot to gamble on a hope. Now I am only gambling the price of the books and right now that is starting with $10. If I'm a good girl and finish this book then I'll let myself buy another one. And in the meantime I have about 10 classics on there (Emma, Pride and Prejudice, Scarlet Pimpernel, etc.) waiting for me.
So Kindle users what are you tips, tricks, hints and gems. What should I know about this device? What kinds of things are on your Kindle? Let's talk.
