WOO HOO! I've Finished My Christmas Shopping!
I placed my last gift order last night, and I received the last gift for myself today. I got an Amazon kindle. It is amazing! Of course the first book I downloaded was a King James Bible for just $4.50. Kindle books are 1/2 to 1/3 the price of regular books. So, I'm thinking the more I read, the more I'll save. Kinda like Obama's economic policy. Spend money to get out of debt. It uses ink that is electronically positioned on the page. So, when I flip the page, it powers up, places the ink and powers down again, in a fraction of a second, saving battery power. The display is larger than the average hard-cover book, and the font size can be adjusted. Since it isn't back-lit, it can be read even in bright sunlight. Oh, and it has a speech function, so if I'm too lazy to read, I can turn it on and it will speak the words. I have someone to read to me at bedtime! No post-purchase regrets this time!
