I am currently not at home, but because Amazon delivery notices come to my cellphone, I received a notice today that, "Your Amazon package with All-New Kindle Oasis E-reader - 7" High-Resolution Display (300 ppi...) was delivered. Way to go Hubby!!  I am now officially on Kindle Watch for December 24th.  8)

I can act TOTALLY surprised when I open the package.  ;D
A book, I think, is very like a little golden door.
That takes me into places where I've never been before.
It leads me into fairyland or countries strange and far.
And, best of all, the golden door always stands ajar. - Adelaide Love

So....I just ordered the new Oasis with a MOKO cover using instant payment from some trade-ins of older Kindles. They are out of stock until 12/19. In the meantime, I am Kindleless and will do my reading on my iPad. This will be be the 6th or 7th Kindle I have purchased.

I was totally going to resist this new Oasis since I love my Oasis 8 and getting things organized on a new kindle is a little bit of a pain. But suddenly last week my 'old' Oasis started freezing up....sometimes in the middle of a page, and sometimes when I am doing something like moving a title into a collection. It started happening right after I downloaded the latest updated software but unfortunately there is no way to go back and undo that! It has progressed to where I am having to do a hard reboot (restart by holding down the power switch) almost once a day now. I only have about 75 books in it right now so memory shouldn't be a problem. Going to talk to someone in Support about it since I had an extended warranty and there are still four months left on it. I'm hoping they'll let me upgrade to the newest version for a small fee....I'd rather do that than end up with a refurbished Oasis 8. Fingers crossed....and just glad for once this is happening right before the warranty expires instead of right afterward.
