I have to admit it. I love my Kindle (Kindle 2 to be precise). I have not overloaded it with tons of books, but I do have a good many. I even have the Bible on it. It makes it super simple to have it with me all the time and light as a feather. (Fits nicely down in my purse.)
My sweet son loves technology (Nintendo, Wii, Computers, etc.) and just as I thought, he latched onto my Kindle, too. To begin with, I thought of being selfish and keeping it all to myself. Then, I downloaded a Flat Stanley book and he was enthralled. Of course, he LOVES Flat Stanley anyway, but something about his favorite character meeting technology that kept him captured. Not only did he just read one chapter that afternoon, he finished most of the book.
I also noticed that his eyes were not quiet as tired as we had increased the font size to a comfortable size for his 7 year old eyes. (I rather enjoy that feature myself and my eyes are a lot older than 7!)
Now, I sure am glad that I shared my toys. And for the love of Kindle, where have you been all my life?
