My Kindle Fire Experience


I have had the Kindle Fire for more than a week now and it is giving me a headache! Yes, a headache.  A little maybe because of the glare, but the headache is mostly caused by me, not knowing when to stop reading, ha ha ha. I have already read some 5 books, and is reading two more at the same time.  I have not finished my Financial management books, but I have finished 5 novels and have downloaded a lot of books too.  This is really addicting! And the fun part is, I can also browse and email while I am riding a bus with wifi.  As my friend Ehms would say, soshal! And I will bring this to Cambodia to email at home so need to lug a laptop around! Success!

Kindle for My Studies

I am just so happy to discover that I can use my Kindle Fire to read books on Financial Management and not just for reading! I really can use it for my studies.  I downloaded copied of two books that I can bring along with me, and not lug around the huge book I am reading. Yehey! And even when I am on vacation, I can still continue with my studying!

But I am happy to say that I have already somehow baptized my Kindle by finishing The Mistress of The Game.  I am now reading the Time Traveller's and have only downloaded the last John Greene book on my list.  But I swear not to red any other book except the Financial Management book for the mean time!a

I Finally Have A Kindle!

Thanks to the Universe and for everything else that conspired to give me my wishes, I am now the proud owner of a second-hand Kindle Fire! Even though my Kindle fund is now going to be my Cambodia fund! Because payment terms to my boss is so flexible, I will start paying her by the end of this month and whenever I have funds thereafter! See, I am telling you it was meant to be! I was really meant to own this Kindle!  Now, if I can only have the guts to show it to my husband (who thinks I am spending way too much already, ha ha ha)!
