...with my Kindle Fire and it's taking me away from all my normal activities. Those of you following my blogs, Empty Nest Evolution and Women of a Certain Age, may or may not have noticed my approximately month-long absence from blogging. It wasn't by design. I simply can't stop reading, playing & referring to the Kindle Fire.
Every night, before I go to sleep, I watch an episode of "Mad Men". I'm getting ready for the new season, beginning in March, by reviewing the past 3 seasons. It's addictive.
I play Words with Friends, a game I'd never heard of til Alec Baldwin was kicked off a plane for refusing to turn off his electronic device at takeoff because he was in the middle of playing. Huh? It's like Scrabble only you're playing someone you don't know. I don't cheat yet, that is, refer to the dictionary for word ideas but I'm sure some of my opponents have. I mean, have you ever heard of the word "coir"? Me neither but it's a real word. Words with Friends is addictive.
I've downloaded and read several books. I didn't think I'd like reading on a Kindle but I like it. It's not addictive but it is easy.
I read the news headlines on Pulse, get instant weather on the Weather Channel app, I upload photographs which look more phenomenal on the Kindle than in my camera or on this computer. Everything looks better on the Kindle Fire.
I'm trying to cut back. I've had the flu these past 4 days, spending most of it in bed on the computer, trying to catch up with everyone's blogs.
No, Amazon is not paying me to say this.
