Let's Talk Kindle! / Turning Grace off when I am not reading.
« on: November 22, 2008, 04:34:57 AM »
I have read a bunch of places that people just put their kindles to sleep when not in use instead of turning them off.  Is there some reason that this is better, or is it ok that I just turn Grace off when I don't need her?

Well, I am going to go down and have one last piece of guilt free birthday cake before midnight (happy birthday to me).  I will check one more time after that and then bed.  I am going with the watched pot theory of waiting.  Good luck to everyone!

I used that Flip 'n Switch promotion (someone posted here) and sold my old iPhone and got $126 which will come to me in Kindle giftcards! Woo-woo!

I don't do this but someone posted on the Amazon board...she pays herself to do laundry. She keeps a jar by her washer and for every load of laundry she pays herself 50 cents. 25 cents for the dryer. That could add up fast for change for the coinstar machine.


Would you tell me about the Flip 'n Switch promotion, please?

Thanks for saying that. I was feeling a little sheepish about asking.  I want, I want, I want...  I sound just like a four year old!  :)

Ok...bragging a little...Christmas presents bought, wrapped, in boxes waiting to be mailed by Halloween.  We are moving soon and I wanted to be ready if, God please be listening, someone actually bought our house.

Wow, what a great birthday present and SIL. 

There's a problem with the Kindle that's hardly ever mentioned, but you should be aware that you may get as addicted to this Board as you do to your yet-to-be-named Kindle. 

Don't  be a stranger and Happy Kindling. 

What's the first book you're reading?

I forgot to answer this...I am reading, simultaneously, The Princess Bride, Rebecca, and One Hundred Years of Solitude.  This is so GREAT!!!! Sorry for the shouting, I have been talking in all caps since yesterday afternoon.

Ok...I have finally come up for air.  I was feeling pretty good about turning 40 until I stayed up until 2:00am playing with my new toy!  Two AM is a lot later at 40 with two toddlers than it was single and 20.  This is the best thing ever.  I have called my sister-in-law so many times to say thank you, she is probably going to be sorry she gave it to me.  :)  Actually, I am going to see her next week and I am quite certain that by Friday evening, she will have ordered one for herself. 

This is the most user friendly thing I think I have ever used.

Thanks for the kind welcomes.   I can't get over how sweet everyone on this site seems to be (well, except Bacardi Jim, but I have quickly come to appreciate old weird uncle BJ!). 

I am going to go talk my kids into an early bedtime so I can enjoy my birthday evening with my new "twin" named...in honor of my SIL...Grace.

Have a great night everyone.

No one has suggested an obvious Kindle name: Paige.

How about Turner?

It is here! Happy birthday to me and Kindle! My wonderful sister-in-law bought me a Kindle for Christmas and decided to give it to me for my birthday.  She also sent it a day early so I could wake up on my birthday with my Kindle!  She is the best and I am so very excited!  Bye - I am going to go read now!

Wow!  What a nice thing to do.  I would like Symphonic, please.  Kindle and I share a birthday, I will be 40 on Wednesday.  I am scheduled to get a Kindle for Christmas, but I am silently hoping that my sister-in-law shows mercy and sends it for my birthday!  Everyone keep a good thought for me, please. I think if I have to wait until Christmas, I may explode!!!!    :)
