My Favorite Things

I love blogging from my phone. I'm home. The computer's in the next room. I'm too lazy to walk over there and type. Heh.

So for Christmas my Hunny upgraded my iPhone from a 3G to a 4. My 3G wasn't working properly, as in I couldn't talk on the phone without using speaker. But I insisted we didn't need to spend money on a new phone.

Two things: I was due an upgrade, and we gave the old phone to Goof Ball for Christmas to use as an iTouch. Rock on. And I love the 4!

My other big gift was a Kindle. My Hunny's boss bought an iPad right after getting the Kindle, so he got it half price. Very nice. However, I'm slow to warm up to technology. So help, bloggy friends! How do I best find the free books? What's your favorite game or feature on your Kindle? I need a jump start.

I wish I could say I had a favorite gift. The sock monkey jack-in-the-box from my bff? Maybe? Fork necklace from my Hunny? Possibly? Anytime toffee from my sis-in-law? Quite probably. Having the best Christmas ever? Definitely.

Sorry to revisit Christmas. I'm learning to use my new toys and thought I'd share. And ask for help. With the Kindle. Help!

Until I write again ...

Yay, I love that Christmas was good to you! Do you like the Kindle? I've been thinking about getting one but there is something about paper that I'm not sure I could give up. Let me know what you think about it!

I don't know anything about high ech gadgets. I think you can download a lot of books off of Amazon for little to nothing, I'm glad your christmas was great our was too!!!

You gadget Ho you....

My good friend got a Kindle. We traded books for 15 years. She is now a traitor in my "book". Just kidding. I still love her.

I'm happy you had a wonderful Christmas!

No help with the Kindle. But it looks like a great idea. Glad you had a super Christmas.

Check with your local library - many offer electronic books that you can "borrow" for two to three weeks.

Keep us updated about how you like the Kindle. I think about going that direction once in a while but am still resisting because I love, love, love books.

I got a phone too, an android and love it. I can blog too but it takes a bit to do it. I like a keyboard as I type pretty fast. I have a Kindle for a last year and really like it. I heard that you can download books from the public library. Not sure how that works. There are a bunch of freebies on the Kindle too. Good luck. I still like a good old fashioned book though.
