I Ordered a Kindle!

I did it!  I ordered a Kindle–the one with the WiFi and all that stuff.  With my birthday and Christmas money, I put a little with it and…I bought a Kindle. 

Recently, my aunt ordered herself a Kindle.  I was going to wait and see how she liked hers, but I couldn’t…wait.  So, I went ahead and placed the order on Amazon.com.  

So, now I need a case.  I scoured websites looking for a Kindle case.  I like the case with the attached light that is sold on Amazon.com.  But, I didn’t want to spend that amount of money for a case–not now, anyway.  I ended up ordering a $20.00 case off of Ebay, which was recommended by my Aunt.  

I am so excited about getting my Kindle–I hope it lives up to all of the hype I’ve been reading about it.  I find myself looking out of the door to see if a “small package” has arrived from UPS, although I know it’s not supposed to arrive for a few days, yet. 

So, I spent yesterday browsing The Kindle Store on Amazon.com.  I even saw where I could download the Kindle application onto my PC.  Had I known that, would I have…?  After thinking about it for a while, the answer is yes.  I would still have ordered The Kindle, because I can take the eReader anywhere. 

Now, I’m even more excited about getting my little package.  I’ve been reading those first chapter freebies and browsing books like nobody’s business.  I’m half way through the first chapter of The Help–based on the first chapter, The Help might be the first book I order on my new Kindle.
