Fire

This was supposed to post at midnight. Darn Blogger changed it to a draft twice on me.

Wade is not one for doing a lot of shopping for Christmas. He tends to buy me the one thing that he's heard me talk about the most over the year.
After Christmas I went out and purchased this for the gift he bought me


My gift was the kindle fire. I've been talking about one of these for quite some time now. I've already downloaded one free book that I'm reading now.


And of course I had to check out all the apps and download a few of those.

Yes, you did see a fart button right in the middle of that picture of the apps. I couldn't resist, it made me laugh. The other night I was sitting on the couch pretending to read while my daughter was sitting at the dining room table. I kept pushing the fart button and she finally looked up at me and asked if that was me.
I also bought myself a pink stylus pen to use when I go online. I discovered that my fingers are just a bit too big and I kept touching the wrong spot. The stylus works great.
So the verdict is that Wade did good this year.

A fun gift, I gave two away.When I was the store everyone was coming in to get one, it was amazing how many I saw go out the door while looking at other electronics.

Good for Wade. Have you started talking about what you want for your next Christmas present. It's never to early.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

Techie gifts always welcome!

Helen said...

lol.... I think who ever made this had too much free time on their hand.

Where did you buy the case? We need one for the Tablet.

i think Wade did a super job of shopping. what fun and that is a pretty pink cover for it. i would have to use a stylus too, it is hard enough using my keyboard on the laptop. enjoy reading in it and playing with your buttons. I don't need a fart app, i can do that all by myself, as anyone over the age of 60 can relate to

Marg said...

That looks like a great gift. I want a full report on how you like it. Guess, I am just an old woman, but I like reading a real book. Guess you can get these books a whole bunch quicker. Also, you can throw away all your book cases. Anyway, hope you enjoy it.

I love mine too! :) It is a great gift right?! lol

I have an acct on Lendle ... if you ever want to borrow any of my books let me know. You get them for two weeks when you borrow.

Tammy said...

What a fun new toy you have. I would say Wade did very good.

Oh, VERY cool! G'ma Phyl bought me a Kindle, which I'm very excited about. I'm hurrying to finish the book on my nightstand so I can start my first book on it!

My family is thankful I don't have the Kindle Fire for the fart noises. :)

SweetMarie said...

Very nice Ann! What a thoughtful hubby you have. :)
Enjoy!

Reeni said...

The fart button was the first thing I noticed! Bwahahaha. I have an older kindle and I LOVE it! No more books cluttering up my house!

Ratty said...

A Kindle Fire would be great. I have fantasized about having one of them since they first came out. Lucky lucky!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Congrats on getting the Kindle Fire. I think they sold a TON of those things for Christmas this year. They are so popular....

You will enjoy it --and all of the APPS.
Hugs,
Betsy

I'm going to hold off on getting one until my regular Kindle has bit the dust...but I don't think it's going to be easy!

Is the fart button touch and sniff?

Tim Hicks said...

Blogger's been doing that to me lately, too.
That is a real nice gift. My wife has been looking into one as well. I'll also tell her about getting a stylus.
Oh, if you're looking for another free book (that is definitely worth the price :)) I would be more than happy to send you the link and a coupon, so you can get my book for free. I guarantee that reading it will put you right to sleep ;)

Antonella said...

I thought about this for my gift, but I already have a kindle that I got last year and couldn't justify the cost... I check out the free books (someone told me they check at least once a month) and now I have a ton of free books (you know, more things I won't ever get to... someday)...
Enjoy!!
Hugs,
Antonella :-)

Oh you lucky girl! Very nice!

Good for you! Haha, love the Fart button! I wonder if I can get one for the iPad! You live love to read electronic books on it. check with you local library to see if they have e-books that you can borrow. Also there is a web site called Pixels of Ink that features free Kindle books on a regular basis.

Sher said...

You are going to love this thing! I also find that the stylis is a big help. You can navigate so much faster with it.

Enjoy!

Donna said...
