My Kindle and Me: It's Here! It's Here!
I went to our door.
And what to my wondering eyes should appear...
But a tiny little Amazon box with a Kindle to hold dear!!!
Thanks to my beyond fabulous Sweet Man, Santa came early to D. D. Scott-ville and brought us our Kindle 3!!!
And OMGosh is it super amazing!!!
Want to know the best part of all?!
Well...as many of you know, I'm a complete Techno Dunce. But I was reading on my new Kindle in no more than five minutes from the time I opened the box!!!
That's right! Even I could figure it out!!!
So I want to share all the Kindle 3's Techno Magic and show y'all how truly fabulous it really is!!!
Here are a few of my right-outta-the-box observations:
1. I luuuvvved that when I turned it on for the first time, the screen read "Welcome, D. D.!"...and yes, I could read that for myself or turn on the feature that allows the Kindle to read it to me...yeah, I know...how cool is that?! You can read your Kindle or your Kindle can read to you!!!
2. I had been sooo stewing about how I'd get all 46 of the books we'd already purchased from Amazon's Kindle Store - using its FREE Kindle PC, Laptop and Smart Phone Apps - from those Apps to our new Kindle...but stewing was sooo not necessary! If you buy your Kindle from Amazon, using the same Amazon account you already buy Kindle E-books from, your Kindle will automatically sync with those apps so all your E-books are already there on your new Kindle screen!!!
3. The letter Amazon sends to your Kindle welcoming you - by name, btw - mentions that their primary design objective was for the device itself to disappear while you're reading, leaving you, the reader, with nothing but the fabulous words, ideas, thoughts, and stories of your favorite authors. And I thought, cool idea but how is that going to happen? Well, folks...I'm not kiddin' ya...that's exactly what it does. Somehow, while you're reading on your Kindle, your eyes no longer "see" the frame and/or device itself, you're just cruising along with the words and the story. Unbelievable!!!
I'm tellin' ya...my Sweet Man and Santa outdid themselves this year!!!
This Techno Dunce is in Cyber World Bliss!!!
On Dasher...on Dancer...you've got tons more Kindles to deliver!!!
Sexy Sassy Smart Kindle 3 Wishes --- D. D. Scott
P.S. We got the Kindle 3 ($189 version w/wi-fi & 3G).
P.S.S. I'll continue to post about My Kindle & Me Experiences!!! And please share your experiences too!!!
