The Curse Of Amazon

I've written before about making extra Amazon credits via Superpoints and Swagbucks.  Not a fortune, but $10-$20 a month always comes in handy!I have the best of intentions.  I tell myself that I'm going to save those credits for something big on my wish list or for Christmas.  I'm only deluding myself. ...more

The Kindle Library

When I first heard Kindle was adding a lending library, I was thrilled!!  After using the library, I'm still happy...but a long way from thrilled.First, you must be a member of Amazon Prime to access the library.  Personally, not an issue as I've been a member of Prime for a long time.  Other Kindle users, however, may not be willing to pay the yearly fee of $79.  For me, a huge portion of my online shopping is through Amazon so I recoup the fee in free shipping.  If the only reason you use Amazon is for your Kindle, it may not be worth the cost....more

Even the light ones? Let me tell you, it's a lot. Now, don't get me wrong. I love the physically of books. I love the artwork in beautiful illustrations and gilded edges, but that certainly doesn't apply to things like paperback novels and dictionaries. ...more

TBR

High Style, High Tech - Stylish Solutions for your iPad & E-Readers

About a year ago, I bought my husband a Kindle. He travels a lot for work and really loves to read, so it was a pretty perfect gift, if I do say so myself. Or, at least it was, until he let me borrow it for a trip across the country, after which he found it nearly impossible to pry his treasure from my vice-like grip. I was almost done with Mockingjay -- you can't expect a girl to put down a book like that, can you?...more
