Kindle first came out I vowed I'd never get one. I love reading books. I love the way they smell and the way they feel.
Then in 2009 when Tin Man was in the hospital for 2 weeks and I was lugging around a bag full of books, I decided to give in.
Aldiko is an app for android phones. I used that up until a month ago. It's a great app, but it drained the battery on my phone really fast. This was a problem when we were at clinic or the hospital because I didn't always have access to an outlet.
So when my mother in law asked what I wanted for Christmas this past year I asked for a Kindle.
I was rather surprised that her and my brother in law went in together to get it because normally I get cow related crap for Christmas. They think its hilarious to get me cow crap because I hit a cow with my car several years ago.
Anyway, the only complaint I had about my Kindle was it didn't have a backlight. Not a problem, I went out and bought a book light. The 2 I bought were to heavy so I invested in a lighted Kindle cover. I wish they would have come in different colors. I chose the green one because it was on sale, and let me tell you this thing reminds me of several diapers I changed when my kids were little.
I read a lot and the kindle lets me have a variety of books at my finger tips. A good friend and I decided to try to read 200 books in a year. Granted if Tin Man gets his heart transplant its not going to work. If he does get his transplant I'm going to aim for 150.
I'll update my list as I finish books.
