Kindle Freebie Addiction

24 Jan

‘Hello, my name is Laura, and I’m addicted to downloading free books for my kindle!’

I have developed a huge addiction to the free side of the kindle. I think in a month i have downloaded about 40 free books, and my addiction is getting worse.

This year was meant to help me shorten my TBR pile, but at the minute all it is doing is growing.

Although, on the other hand, its free, not taking up any space and will keep me entertained. So maybe its not such a bad thing. Anyone with me?

All I Want For Christmas is . . . . A Kindle

20 Dec

Yes, you heard right, the girl who always said that Kindles were rubbish and pointless, wants a Kindle! I’m not altogether sure what has brought about this U-turn but I am really wanting one now.

I think it may have something to do with me running out of room for any new books. I simply cannot get rid of the books that I read once I have read them, and now I am really running out of space.

The idea of all the free books available to aswell is just brilliant. I know that some of the newer books are more expensive but it kind of balances itself out a bit.

I had a bit of a play on one in a shop too at the weekend and really liked it. It isn’t back-lit and found it very easy to use. I may have left it a bit late this year but i have been dropping abnormally large hints that I want one to my lovely boyfriend, so I’m secretly hoping that I get one.

I dont think it will totally replace my pape books, but its something to read along side them.

I will just have to wait and see!
