I have a Kindle. I LOVE my Kindle. It has changed my life. You think I exaggerate. You are WRONG!
But seriously. My Kindle has been integrated into my life. It goes with me everywhere. The amount of time I spend reading has doubled if not more. I don't have to spend time choosing books for a trip; they are already with me. The ONLY drawback thus far has been the inability to check out books from the library.
That restriction is gone!!!!
My local library uses Overdrive for electronic media and the Kindle is now a supported eReader in Overdrive. After being on the wait list for 2 weeks, today I checked out my first book. The book? Forever in Blue by Ann Brashares. Don't judge. I have a thing for young adult literature. I've read the first 3 books. This book has been on my list for a while, but I haven't been ready to pay $10 for the electronic version of it.
With a few clicks the book was in my list of Kindle title on Amazon. I turned wireless on my Kindle and waited for the book to appear. The only strangeness was the it wouldn't download the book over 3G. I had to hop on WiFi and everything worked well. Thank goodness for free hotspots.
And now I'm reading no poorer for my need to devour the written word. This is an amazing and long awaited development. Stay tuned for my review of Forever in Blue. Any guesses on which will take longer, reading the book or writing the review? *smile*
