You know, I was a holdout on the Kindle for a LONG time! I just didn’t think it could compete with holding a book in your hands, the feel of the pages, the whole bookstore experience, and on and on. And really, I still love all those things about a “real” book the best. However, I finally broke and downloaded the smaller free version on my iPhone, and I really love the convenience of having a number of books in my purse at any given moment – especially when I travel.
The actual Kindle is about the size of a book, but much thinner and lighter, holds an enormous number of books and has a plethora of other cool features. But they are also $259. So, when I heard about the giveaway that Noobie was doing, I decided to give it a go…thought you might like to try too! You can access it from the button below:
And if you don’t win, and you have an iPhone, find the Kindle at the app store! It may be a smaller, “less frills” version, but it’s free!
Melinda, I've been a holdout on the Kindle, too, but it's sounding better and better to me all the time. Don't have an iPhone so can't download the free version. Thanks for the heads up on a chance to win one!
Have a great rest of the week!
I just read my first book on my ipod! It was great while I waited in lines all day!! I have to say I still do love to hold a book and flip the pages.
I'm wondering about the real Kindle. Still don't know if I am sold on it! I'm sure if I got one for Christmas I wouldn't complain!
I was like you in the fact that I received mine from hubby; I wasn't sold, until we went on vacation. Sure nice to have a kindle that ways less than 11 ounces, holding hundreds of books. No longer carting a heavy suitcase just for our books.
Happy December 2nd!
Oh dear … I've just gotten used to terms like "twitter" and "vlog"; now there's another new thing to asborb.
It's a good thing I'm a sassy sort or I'd be sunk.
As a fellow book lover I have wondered about this… Does it hurt/bother your eyes to read it like that? I am guessing not since you like it! =)
So you really like reading from it? Do your eyes get sore?
I've wanted one; heard Beth Moore got one last year for Christmas. And if Beth Moore can use it and love it when she is a book-a-holic who loves the smell of a new crisp book like I do, then maybe I could be a convert. I'm still uncertain, but I will certainly try it if I win one! 🙂
Prayers and blessings,
Love your blog:)
I work all day at a computer screen and by the end of the day I have had enough of screen viewing so I don't think my eyes would like to read a book on the Kindle. I also love the smell of old books and flicking through – both lost with the new gadget. However I do love my iPhone and use that for recipes. The Jamie Oliver App is really good.
