I got a Kindle Fire!!

For Christmas I got my husband a Kindle Touch.  It is the neatest little thing.  When they first came out I was not sure I would like them.  I mean I am an old fashioned girl! I like to curl up on the couch with a could I do that with an electronic gadget?!

So Tuesday my wonderful husband text me while I was at Walmart telling me to go get myself a Kindle Fire!!  WHAT?!  I was SO excited!!  I think I actually skipped through Walmart!!  We had talked about getting an iPad, but decided it was necessary for us at this time.  BUT the Kindle Fire...oh yes that is necessary!  Let me show you why...
It is the same size as a "normal" book.  It fits right on my lap while I'm curled up on the couch.  Hmmm wasn't that my reason for not wanting one?  LOL!

Just look at how beautiful this is!!  I have everything I'm reading right at my fingertips.  It fits in my purse so while I'm out and about I can do some reading.  The Bible app (YouVersion) is amazing! There are so many different versions of the Bible I can read.  When i'm doing a study I use many different versions. will read to me!  When I'm resting sometimes I just want to listen.

Yes and there are a number of games.  My favorite so far is Word Mix.  You have to make words out of letters given to you. 

I love love love old books.  I'm talking books published in the 1800's and early 1900's.  There are so many forgotten gems out there.  Some of my favorites are:

Mary at the Farm and Book of Recipes by Edith Thomas
Household Education by Harriet Martineau
Practical Suggestions for Mother and Housewife by Marion Mills Miller
The Complete Home various authors
The American Frugal Housewife by Lydia Maria Francis Child

There are many more, but those are some I've started so far.  I've also been downloading a ton of cookbooks.  It just amazes me that a whole shelf worth of books fit right in this.

Everything is so clear on this!  This is my blog.  I tell you the first hour I had it I just sat there and stared at it.  I felt all geeky inside.  LOL!!  Who knew an electronic gadget would do that to me?!  ME?! an old fashioned girl.  I'm an old fashioned girl living in the 21st century.

All closed up safe and sound.  I love this case.  The pattern is so beautiful!  The cover makes it look and feel like a book.  **grin**
