So when asked to give a list, I put the few reasonably priced items on my list and then I asked for money.
Family was good and I was able to get myself a Kindle Touch, which I absolutely love.
It is an incredible blessing and it is a great temptation. I am an avid reader. I wish I could find a job where I could read books I liked all day long. I am not very good with things I am not interested in though, so I do not think I will be finding anything real soon.
Back to my Kindle, I never thought I would be willing to buy something like this, because I love books. I thought part of my love of books was actually holding the book, feeling it in my hands, that physical connection. I was wrong. I still love books, but I have found I am very satisfied with my Kindle.
One of the things I love about my Kindle is it can hold over 3000 books. I am getting close to 500 books on my Amazon account right now. Not all of those are on my Kindle though, but about 2/3 are. The rest are held in my Cloud, which I will tell you more about later. I also started collecting these before I got my Kindle. You can actually download a Kindle app on almost anything you have - PC, Mac, iPod, and many other devices. So I had been using my iPod to collect free Kindle books for about a year now.
Another thing I like is its size. It is just the right size to fit into my purse. I take it with me everywhere.
I also love that I can get lots of free books through Amazon. There are other sites online where you can get books print pre1920s, but Amazon has a large selection of current titles for free. I have to admit that I check Amazon at least once a day to find these free books. They will put titles on for free for just one day some times, so I do not want to miss anything. At the end of this post, I am going to include a list of current, free books that I think are good reads.
I will warn I am rather eclectic in my book tastes. I love Christian romances where the author not only gives you a happily ever after, but a solid message to go with it. I like scifi books with action and aliens. I like fantasy that includes other dimensions and traveling in time. I like go old good guys versus bad guys. Some of my favorite authors are Lori Wick, Susan May Warren, Clive Cussler, Michael Crichton, and Dee Henderson. I love the classics. Give me Austen, Montgomery, Alcott, Dickens, Shelley any day.
Well, this was a whole lot long than I had anticipated. I am leaving you with a list of Amazon's current free books that I can vouch for. Like I said, these are sometimes only available for free for one day. If you see something that strikes your fancy, check it out. Each will have its own link. I hope you enjoy a good read on me, well, on Amazon.
Okay, well, these do not show my eclecticism, but I will keep looking.
