My best friend (S.) got me a Kindle for Christmas. I've put it off forever and made all kinds of excuses: I only read a book once so it wouldn't pay, I'm not good with complex technology, Amazon is taking over the world and me not succumbing to the pull of millions of digital books protects us from having Jeff Bezos' face carved into Mount Rushmore...
Well, if me holding out prevented it, we're in trouble now. I love it! My good Goddess, I'm up to my eyeballs in electronic ink. Free/discounted ebooks fly on-and-off my virtual shelves faster than a politician changes his/her stance on an issue. I've bought books by blogging buddies and debut writers.
I subscribe to the Choosy Bookworm, Bookbub, and Fussy Librarian newsletters in my email to catch great deals.
I'm not convinced about using it for magazine subscriptions, though. But maybe time will change me.
So, what did all of you get during your holiday of choice?
Do you have an e-reader? If so, were you hesitant at first?
Anything I should know about with the Kindle?
