A few months ago I found out about the Amazon Kindle, an ebook reader, from a friend and have been drooling over it ever since. Then, I got to play with one for the first time when we went to visit some family and it turned out that my cousin had one!
The next day, Louis told me that I could order one as an early Christmas gift….YAY!
It only took a few days to arrive, and I’ve been playing with it ever since. Well, trying to…my daughter seems to think it’s a great toy too, so every time she sees me with it she wants it. Hopefully she’ll be a book-lover too!
I immediately made a case for it using a tutorial that I found here, since I had some pretty fabric and not enough money to pay for Amazon’s cover. You can download many “classics” for free from Amazon’s site, and I’ve even found some Christian books! A Max Lucado study Guide on the book of Acts, a Women of Faith Book, a book written by a Christian couple, of which the husband is a pro football player, and you can even find some Kindle-friendly (meaning easy to navigate) Bible versions for free. Hubby doesn’t really like KJV of the Bible, and I couldn’t find a free version on NKJV (which is my preferred version) but I found a free version called God’s Word, which I hadn’t heard of before but seems fine.
Don’t know if anyone else has an ebook reader (there are many different brands), but if you have one, do you know of any good sites to get some free Christian ebooks?
