My Kindle’s Here! My Kindle’s Here!

I’m like a kid at Christmas – my Kindle’s here!  After putting off buying one for too long, I’ve finally succumbed to Kindle love.  I’m an avid reader, and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the Kindle once Amazon lowered the price.  Now it’s here and guess who downloaded the first books?  My sons!  My younger son downloaded a classic Beverly Cleary book Ralph S. Mouse, and my older son downloaded the latest Alex Ryder novel.  This was after they tried a sample chapter first.  I took both boys to the doctor this morning with coughs and sore throats, and they devoured books on the Kindle en route.  It was beautiful silence.
A nice surprise – some quilt books are available on the Kindle.  Mostly the state documentation books, like Tenneessee Quilts, and all the photos are in black and white, but it’s lovely to have some quilt love on the Kindle too.
So excuse me, but I have to catch up on my reading.  And my first Kindle book?  The School of Essential Ingredients by Erica Bauermeister.  It’s a great novel about cooking and relationships, and I wanted to read it over the summer but couldn’t find it locally.  The Kindle makes reading so easy, especially for book lovers.  Goodbye Law & Order, hello novels.
