Top 5 Reasons I Love My Kindle

1. I love to read it while nursing my son.  I can hold it and turn pages with just one hand. He's also ten months old and very interested in anything I'm holding. So if he reaches for my Kindle he won't rip any pages.
2. If I'm going on vacation I can easily take more than one book.  It doesn't take up a bunch of room in my bag.
3. I'm not always in the mood to read so games are nice to have on my Kindle too. I like to get them for free through Amazon.
4. I never pay for books. I find them for free on Amazon or through our library's ebook database called Overdrive. And even with checking them out through Overdrive there aren't any late fees.  The book simply gets checked in automatically.
5. Kindle can sync with any device that you have the Kindle app on. For example: I have my Kindle and then I have the Kindle app on my tablet and phone. So, I can read this book pretty much anywhere! I even  have an actual copy of While We're Far Apart by my bed! Syncing is nice for those people that can only read one book at a time. (I usuallly have two or three started at the same time, yikes!)

 A secret tip: I can keep Overdrive books checked out indefinitely.  Simply get the book checked out onto your Kindle and turn the WiFi off.  It will stay on your device until you turn your WiFi back on and it syncs with your account.

I might not have the latest Kindle but I love it for what it can do. My first love is still good old paper books.  There's just something about holding a book and turning the pages.
What do you think about eReaders?


  1. I'm not really sold on e-readers yet. I borrowed one from a friend once and thought it was okay, but I still love my books. I do have to admit that I would get a WHOLE lot more reading done if I had one to use while nursing!!!

    Such a sweet photo of your little guy. I love it!

    1. Thanks Julie! He's a sweetie! I love when he falls asleep in my arms. And I still love my books too! I also leave it sitting in Levi's nursery- I don't have to worry that he will tear out any pages.
