Then there was FIRE!

Sorry, didn’t mean to scare you.  I’m talking about Kindle Fire.

SkyMed ( follow the link on the left to know more about SkyMed) awarded us a Kindle Fire for sales we had last October/November.  We are avid book readers.  We are always perusing the local libraries looking for books.  We drop books off…we get new books.  I have books stashed everywhere.  We very seldom buy a book. I wasn’t sure if I would like reading a book on an E-reader.  I have the Kindle app on my Droid and have read a book or two on it but the screen on the Droid is so small and I’m flipping pages so fast that it makes me dizzy.  The Kindle Fire is like a small I Pad.  I have downloaded books…books that were already in my “Cloud”.  I have downloaded free music albums that stay in my “Cloud” so I can then download them to my MPG3 player on my Droid. I can surf the web, check email, download apps, watch streaming videos through my Amazon Prime account, browse for free books and music. I can also borrow books from Amazon’s lending library. There are free e-book sites other than Amazon not to mention the local library for their e-books.  There are functions of the Fire that I haven’t even begun to understand yet.

The biggest problem I seem to have is Tim.  He keeps eyeing MY Kindle.  I don’t plan on showing him how to turn it on.
