As I mentioned in a previous post, Anthony got me a kindle fire for Christmas!!!
It is my new obsession. I can't even begin to tell you how much I love this thing. I have to be honest, I was hesitant to jump on the e-reader bandwagon to begin with. I love love love to read, and at most times have 3-5 books being lugged around in my purse, so the I knew a kindle would be a nice respite from that. But I was concerned about me actually enjoying to read it.
My fears have been calmed however, with the arrival of this wonderful little tablet.
#1) The screen picture quality is amazing, so I'm not straining to read like I thought I might be.
#2) And this is semi-embarassing. I absolutely adore the fact that the kindle tells me the percentage of how far along I am in the book. The OCD side of me, and there is a decently large OCD side of me, loves keeping track of that percentage, even more than I enjoy flipping pages.
#3) It saves my page for me. Nuff said.
Now as much as I would loooove to say I use my kindle strictly for furthering my intellect through the written word, let's be honest. The first two things I did when I opened my fun new toy?
I downloaded Angry Birds...
and I downloaded Words With Friends..
and now I am addicted to both, and spend way too much time playing both of them.
