Drum Roll, Please…

I have a Kindle Fire of my very own!  It’s a bit of a long story.  Those of you who have been reading for a while know that I received a Kindle Fire as a family Christmas present in 2011.  My children promptly claimed it as their own, and because of their disabilities and the astounding independence the technology provided them with, I let them claim it.

Then, I got another Kindle Fire in February 2012, figuring with two I’d get some time on one of them.  But it was not to be.  My youngest would take one Kindle, my middle child would take the other, and my oldest would spend his time on the family computer.  The boys would use the Kindles until they were completely drained of power.

Then, one of the Kindles refused to recharge.  I thought the warranty had run out, so I went out and bought a Nabi to replace it.  A Nabi is very much like a Kindle Fire, but it’s designed specifically with children in mind.  Not only does it come with pre-loaded content, but it also comes with a protective shell to keep it from being damaged when dropped—all for the price of a plain old Kindle Fire.

Then, our other Kindle started dying, too.  I knew that one was still under warranty.  When I called, I found out both were under warranty, so both were replaced.  And one is all mine!

I’ve even downloaded my very first e-book!  Check back on Saturday to learn why this book was chosen as my first among the many thousands I could have picked.

    lmao – you just reminded me of my Mum, not that she ever had anything to do with anything even distantly computerized! No, it was what she ate that I remembered. You see when she made chicken schnitzel she would always give Dad the breast meat, I would get the leg and she would gnaw on the wing. For years I used to think she really loved those chicken wings. Then one day she told me that money had been tight back then so she always gave the best cuts to us, making do with the bony bits for herself.

    You are a true Mum and I applaud you. But I’m also really glad you finally have a Kindle Fire of your own. 😀 Grats!

  2. They bother because it’s more profitable to “sell” a story that people already love than to sell their own…it also takes less creativity.
