On Christmas day, 75% of our family was connected to the great bookstore in the sky…Amazon.com. Emily and the kids each got kindles for Christmas. I think we were all pretty skeptical when we first started thinking about this evil magic but Emily’s mom and my mom each got kindles and they seemed to like them. The kids begged to read on theirs each time we saw them so we thought it might be worth a try.
Emily opened hers on Christmas morning and sort of gave a scowl…much like when I gave her a frying pan for Valentine’s day. Rats…I blew it again. Still, she turned it on and started reading the book that I had bought and installed. She came out of hiding a day and a half later! Maybe a kindle was better than a frying pan! Isaac did the exact same thing so I knew his gift was a hit too!
Before Abigail had a chance to even turn hers on, I commandeered it and downloaded a bunch of books and hid from her while I read. She finally tracked me down and insisted that I return her kindle so she could use her Christmas present.
Dang kids who read…well, I had to order my own. Yesterday I received my kindle from the kind UPS driver and moved all of my stuff to it. Of course, I had to take all of my stuff off of Abigail’s kindle. She finally got it back right before bed last night. Was that mean? I think it will make her appreciate being able to use her Christmas present even more today!
Well, we do read a lot and I guess you could say we are 100% kindle enabled finally. Thank you great bookstore in the sky. Thank you for giving us cheaper books at the touch of a button. But please great bookstore, please make it just a little harder to buy a book…we are becoming addicted and the credit card on file doesn’t seem to know how to say stop!
