I Think I'm In Love

Hubby has been making some commercials for the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk "Bands on the Beach" series, and one of the artists to appear this year is Eddie Money.  So I've been hearing the song "I Think I'm in Love" a bazillion times as he edits the commercial.  Ha ha!
But actually, I think I do love this new Kindle!
When we bought our first Kindle, we got the 3G that has a built-in WiFi since we had only a limited amount of download through Verizon MyFi. (sp?)
And since Hubby ordered it, but was presently reading a hard cover book, I got to order a book on it.  I liked it, but one night when I woke up in the middle of the night thinking that I was going to read in bed with my lighted  My bad; I misunderstood the lighted thing.  Okay, and as I continued to read the next day, I enjoyed it but missed the feeling of "holding" a book.  Weird, I know, but it's who I am.  :)

Long story short, we upped our download capability (since we kept going over our alloted amount just working our business anyway) and some books on Kindle are much less expensive than buying real books, I decided to get a Kindle of my own.  It had to have a cover so I could hold it like a book, (I ordered the steel blue and it turned out to be not quite the color I had anticipated, but whatever!) and the cover comes with a light that slides out of the back of the cover.  I would have tried that last night when I was awake for HOURS, but I hadn't downloaded a book yet.

Which brings up another point!  We had spoken with a couple different Amazon tech support people and were assured that we could download books on the $139 Kindle, with Verizon, no problem.  Well, turns out, Kindle is not compatible with Verizon MyFi.  Um, okay.  But don't be alarmed!  There is a workaround if you go through the computer and use a USB to transfer to the Kindle.  Yea!

I am sooo hoping that I'm not awake at 3:30 tomorrow morning, but if I am, I'm prepared!


  1. I love, love, love my Kindle!

  2. I love and am wedded to my books but I'm having an affair with a Kindle. Best of both worlds.

  3. Never tried one yet. In fact, I haven't SEEN one yet. Actually I haven't even seen an ad for them except on the internet. Might be a language thing I suppose. Swedish is a small language.

  4. I like the smell of books.
    Old and new alike.
    I havnt used a Kindle so I could change my mind, but I think it would have trouble with the download of books, since we dont have wifi out here and I can only use dial up for my computer.
    But, I do like your Kindle Cover!
    Its very pretty!
