Kindle

Woo Hoo!

I bought the best thing ever a few days ago. A Kindle. i’ve been looking at one for a while and thought it would be so nice to have, for several reasons. It wasn’t until I met up with Josh Bancroft a few weeks ago to talk about wikis that I got the chance to see a Kindle live and in person. It is so cool! You can have hundreds of books on your Kindle. You can subscribe to magazines, newspapers and of course buy books, load free books and so much more.

I just got the Kindle last night, plugged it in to charge it and then in a couple of hours started reading the Jun 16th edition of Time magazine. How cool is that? I also chose some books and had them loaded on my Kindle. It’s so super easy. I mean you just go tot he Kindle store, choose your book, etc and then it’s one click for purchase and then in seconds it’s sent to your Kindle via their wispernet system. I mean I didn’t have to subscribe to a wireless account or anything. I guess it uses the same technology that cell phones use. Basically if you’re in a location that gets cell service, you’ve got wifi access on your Kindle. Awesome!!

Honestly, I can’t even say enough about this cool toy. I love the idea that I can read magazines, books and more from one device. I love that I can jump from one to the other, leave notes in the book, etc. There’s just so much to say about this thing. I can’t imagine not having one if you’re an avid reader. I’m sure it won’t be long until we’re getting one for Eric. He loves reading too!

More on the Kindle to come later as I use it more!
