OK... I admit I have been drooling since the news and pictures of the latest Kindle appeared at Amazon. It is a beauty, and I love the idea of it being able to tap into a nice fast wifi connection when available. Combine that with a smaller size without a smaller screen and it is definitely a winner.
Now what to do with my perfectly good Kindle 2 with its (very expensive) Oberon hand crafted leather cover. And... if I do break down and add the latest Kindle to my home, how soon before Oberon has a cover for it too? How dare they (Amazon) make something so neat and so tempting to a bibliophile?
There is even a choice of colors this time around!
AND... Here are a couple of new free offerings in the Kindle book store.
Note: If you are reading this on your Kindle and want to get a book from the Kindle store now, type the title with your Kindle, then toggle your 5-way switch to the right until the word store is highlighted. Press in on it to search. When the title comes up, use the 5-way toggle switch to move around the book info area to read more about the book. Make sure it is still free (or an acceptable price) before finally pressing in on the 5-way switch to "buy" it. You can always press the back button (before you press buy) if you change your mind.
And remember... what is FREE today may not be FREE tomorrow, so get it while you can!
Both of these little goodies sound like just the thing to take you away! Addictive as junk food... chocolate in particular.
