I’ve Been Kindlized

The back of the Amazon Kindle 2

Peggy reads a lot and spends time perusing library book sales to buy hard cover books of her favorite authors. She has several large boxes filled with bargain books. She keeps a log of those she buys and takes it with her when she shops a sale to avoid duplications.   She always carries a book to read during wait times wherever we go for appointments. She has been on the same book for a year. Often reading only a paragraph or two while sitting in a doctor’s waiting room.

This Christmas, one of her beautiful grand daughters gifted her with a Kindle. It remained in the box for several days. She had no interest. I finally asked her to let me see it. I wanted to learn how to use it so when she did get ready to use it, I could teach her how. It took me about an hour to learn to navigate its functions, to set it up on the wireless network, and link it to my Amazon account. Now when the darn thing fires up it says “Joe’s Kindle.”

To get things rolling, I downloaded a sample of the number one book on the New York Times Best Seller List. The book is “The List” by J.A. Konrath and Jack Kilborn. It appeared on the device within minutes.

Peggy watched me play with the buttons and flip from one page in the Kindle Store to another. She told me she would get started using the thing right after she finished the book she was reading.

The next morning, I learned how to enlarge the print to something I could see without any strain. I began the read. The story started out with action, and I found myself immersed. At Chapter Six the sample ended, oh no! The promise I made to myself the night before to not spend any money on books ended. I went into the Kindle Store and hit the Buy Now button. By the time, I finished my first cup of coffee the complete book was there.

The reading began and I never put the damn thing down. Even though I had to push the page button hundreds of times to get me through the large print, I couldn’t read fast enough. The story held my interest but reading on the device seemed more comfortable than reading a paper book. I finished in one day. Never have I completed a book in one day.

Peggy may own the Kindle but it is mine to use.
