Books make great gifts for the holidays, birthdays, and other celebrations.

I’ve always been an avid reader, most likely because afternoons at my house growing up were spent reading. Mama always had a pile of books on her nightstand that were next “in line” for digging into and bookshelves filled with books lined the walls of our house in more than a few rooms. You could say, we had the reading bug in my house.

When Little Buddy was born, many of my favorite gifts he received were books. Hardbound classics, touch and feel novelty books and more. As he’s grown up, trips to the library have been some of his favorite excursions, but he always likes to keep books to read and then reread again later. Something that makes this Mama’s heart soar. And I have to admit that my nightstand is filled with books just as my Mama’s was so many years ago. So, when I was asked by Amazon to review the new Kindle Paperwhite and curate a few collections of books, I jumped at the chance.

The Kindle is truly a gift for the entire family. Since it’s designed specifically for reading, with a glare-free screen, easy page flip, Goodreads integration, and quick, easy download access to more than millions of books, newspapers, magazines and more without the distractions of reading on your computer or other device, I can easily relax with a book rather than feeling like I should switch over to check emails or work on a project or anything else.

Likewise, I can hand my son the Kindle and feel secure knowing that games aren’t luring him away from reading and feel safe that he’s reading the books we’ve selected together since I utilize the available parental control. I also know that he can easily use the dictionaries and integrated vocabulary builder to help him learn even more while reading.

Books really do make great gifts for everyone in the family.

  1. The amazon kindle is on our wish list because I am a book worm. Kindles are environmentally friendly, they do not use paper as books do, and they are a convenient way to carry hundreds of books at your fingertips.

  2. The Amazon kindle is on my holiday wishlist this year because I am a huge bookworm and I love reading. I love the fact that this is so convenient top have so many books in one place and that I can read them at any time. Thank you for the chance to win.


  3. I would like to win a Kindle because books take up a lot of room in the house and weigh a lot to haul around with me. A Kindle would fix that problem!

  5. A Kindle is on my list because I have a huge collection of books that I’d love to condense down to a tablet on my night stand!
