So I got to open my Christmas gift very early. In my house gifts don't last long. They probably last about 30 minutes at the most before we can't stand it anymore and HAVE to give it to the other person. Needless to say anything that gets shipped for the honey I have sent to my grandmothers house. But anything I pick up at the store ends up given to him.
That is how I got my fancy new wonderful Kindle!
I have been drooling over this device since it first came out. Years now. They finally lowered the price to $259 which had I been employed I would have snapped up in a second. Instead my lovely wonderful honey got it for me for Christmas.
I am not sure how useful this will be for most people but I am a readaholic. I have a book in my hands at all times with a spare nearby in case I run out of book.
I sat down and figured some stuff out....
Ok so I am a little anal and a lot nosy. No laughing
I read a book a day or every two days but I also plan on reading horror "real" books. So let's figure a book every three days.
365/3 = 122 (it is actually 121.6666666 but who cares lol)
So 122 books saves me a dollar a book (again general seems to be more) So $122 in savings for the year.
So in two years the kindle will have paid for itself (minus 15 dollars)
(although I saved $5 on one of the books I ordered last night and $3 on the other so I think the Kindle will end up paying for itself a lot quicker then this estimate)
And I will not have 244 "real" books that get sent to the goodwill or what ever in my house.
And that is being conservative. I have and do read a book a day most days.
I all ready downloaded two books and I have a third that I am going to put on there in a bit.
I love it. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!!
