I know I told at least Haley that I was getting a Kindle for Christmas, but I’m not sure how many people who actually read this actually knew, or even care that I got one– it was my big present from my folks and pretty much covers a couple of years of Christmas and Birthday presents because it’s a bit pricy for them at the moment (which I’m not even going to get into right now because the point is to keep my mind off this junk). I was looking forward to it for like… a month there, and when I finally got it, it turns out I’m more in love with it than I thought I’d be.
I’ve been pumping it full of ebooks and such and reading off and on– there’s also an MP3 option to upload a couple (not a lot since it only has like 3 gigs of space and and I want a ton of books) that can be played in the background for reading… I’m pretty sure there’s a headphone jack too, for discretionary music and reading purposes. But seriously, this thing is so boss. It doesn’t hurt your eyes, it looks like magical fucking paper being written for you on point as you go through a book, instead of some random ‘computer’ device housing text for you. It’s like something out of goddamn Harry Potter.
I’m getting smudged all over it and it annoys me, but I can’t afford a GelaSkin right now– I want one, I have a few ideas of which ones I want and they’re only like 22$ with shipping, but I just don’t have the budget for it right this moment, all the while my shit is getting smudged all over, here comes my sad face.
Mostly this post is for my stalker!wench Haley, whom I love and adore <3 to let her know that fuck yes it’s worth getting, it’s not backlit, it’s not too bright, you do need a light on to read it, just like a fucking book, but it’s all those books in one. It not being backlit is a godsend, imo, considering that’s part of what fucks up our eyes with computer screens– you can also ramp up the font size if you need to, or so I’ve heard, but I haven’t found that option just yet. All in all… GET ONEEEEEE.
