I have been "Kindled"!

Look out world! This old quilter is now a new owner of a Kindle Touch 3G! Of course I was a bit apprehensive before it arrived. I know I pestered Our Bonnie Hunter and other users of this amazing device concerning using the download feature.

I was worried for nothing! We are not wireless here. Yet the Kindle was able to find and use a signal. I have books on it already!

 I should have bought a cover and the AC adapter. But until I do one of those pencil boxes I have fit the Kindle perfectly. Now the kitties cannot walk on it and read something they should not. HA!
It is 4:00 a.m. here in Indiana.
I am waiting for clue #5 for the Orca Bay Mystery quilt from Bonnie Hunter. (http://www.quiltville.com)

Oh Subee you're going to LOVE it! And don't worry about a cover... there are all kinds of patterns for making covers for them... just sewn or quilted. But I'm sure you'll come up with a unique cover pattern yourself. :)

Congrats new kindle owner!! I don't think I'll ever go back to paper books, just adore mine. And I'm certain you'll whip up some adorable cover for that little beauty in no time!

I have to tell you, the fact that your Kindle ended up in a pencil box made me giggle. That is so you!
Waiting for Bonnie's newest release at 4:00 a.m.? Now that is dedication!

I just had to stop by and ditto what Laurie said. I've had my kindle for about 6 months now and I've read more books than I have ever read in my life. It's so easy to hold without getting tired and it slips into my purse so I can read a page or two when waiting wherever. You'll love it!! I sure do.

I don't yet have a kindle. I'm still hitting the library often. SOOO funny you were up at 4AM! That's how you're so quick!
