I think I’m falling in love again… I just got my Amazon Kindle delivered today! I feel so… ah, what’s that feeling, yes, young again, free again, in love. I’m the worst kind of kid with a new toy, an electronic toy and first in my Starbucks to get one, I’ll bet. Except I don’t go to Starbucks anymore, I’m getting ordinary coffee at Einstein’s Bagels, but that’s another story.
What I love about the Kindle: Instant free downloadable samples of books. When you decide which to buy, you order them onto your Kindle for about $10, and you get books instantly delivered via the wireless connection to your Kindle.
There’s instant access to newspapers and magazines, and even blogs if I wanted to pay the $.99/month subscription to a blog i can read for free on my iPhone…huh?
What I don’t love about the Kindle: I can’t get my recent book purchases onto my Kindle without paying a $10 fee/per book.
I can access my Google calendar, send email through Gmail, visit Wikipedia and other favorite bookmarks… I can even listen to MP3 music or podcast files…it’s like a mini-laptop. This is particularly great for traveling when I hate stuffing books into my purse because they weigh so much…
