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.
