Me, alone. Life after loss.
Literature - our great archive of human expression... ~ Sven Birkerts
After Errol died, I knew needed something to distract me, to entertain me, so I bought a Kindle Fire. I never owned an ipad or a laptop and since I love to read, and I was an established Amazon customer, I felt this was the way to go. Not to mention the price. I also became an Amazon Prime member, so now I can watch free movies, free TV shows, read free books, read the Washington Post (becoming an addiction) and play solitare (also becoming an addiction) from the comfort of my bed.
I never had this before and I love my Kindle Fire. What you get for $99.00, plus another $99.00 per year for the Prime membership is outstanding. In my opinion.......
this is great news.. so glad you got one.. it is like taking a tiny computer to bed with you and so easy to hold..ReplyDelete
I love all the great quotes you are using during the challenge. Glad you got a device, and a program, you're happy with. I have a Kindle, but I use Netflix for watching my shows.ReplyDelete

I love my Amazon Fire, too! I did the 30-day trial for Amazon Prime and then cancelled it because all the movies I wanted to watch cost extra money. Maybe I'll give it a try again sometime!ReplyDelete
My mum is always on hers, they are great!ReplyDelete
I love Amazon Prime. I have a smart TV that shows whatever I want from Amazon Prime with the press of a button. The TV was a gift. I couldn't afford it! It's hard to be alone. Your loss is very different from mine because you love your husband, but I think of divorce as the death of our family. It will never again be the four of us.ReplyDelete
I have a Nook Color but it is starting to show it's age. Maybe I will get a Kindle next!ReplyDelete
It was a great gift to yourself and you are more tecky than me. I still do not have a Kindle but I have a laptop and play solitaire too when I need some diversion or just need to sit down for a rest. It's addictive like you said.ReplyDelete
have a great day.
Yep, you got a good deal and the entertainment is well worth it.ReplyDelete
I mostly use mine for travel -- easier than packing books.ReplyDelete
I agree. I would rather read a book on my iPad than in a paper book. I can adjust the print and brightness and it seems that I read them quicker than in book form. I also don't have a pile of books taking up room in my house. I only read books once and then either give them away or put them in our street book kiosk. I am grateful to AmazonReplyDelete
Prime for making things easier in my life.
I totally agree! I don't use my Kindle, instead I use the Kindle app on my iphone 6+. I live in a rural area and get most of our stuff shipped PRIME. I also am a Kindle Unlimited member. I love AMAZON so much!ReplyDelete
I'm visiting from the A to Z Challenge.

Hi Inger - I'm so pleased you were able to distract yourself .. and the Kindle Fire certainly offers much - I still love my books - but that might change ... thanks too for the overview of the Kindle Fire ... cheers HilaryReplyDelete
I love my Kindle and also Amazon Prime.ReplyDelete
If my house is on fire, my kindle will be in one hand and my pets tucked under each arm as I run out the door. Mine isn't a Fire, just a 2nd generation--maybe the next one will be a Fire. What an amazing invention and I'm so glad you have one to give you pleasure and entertainment.ReplyDelete
I also have a Kindle Fire and LOVE it! I use it so much! So glad you are enjoying yours as well!ReplyDelete
