So I received an email today from BzzAgent detailing the rules of how to get chosen to be a BzzAgent for the upcoming Kindle Campaign. My heart jumped and I thought….Oh how I would LOVE to get this campaign!!!! My husband and I are very avid readers. We feel that reading every single day, no matter how much, is a vital part of keeping your brain young! A few years ago I did purchase my husband a Kindle for his birthday and much to my chagrin…I used it much more than he did. He stated that he enjoyed using the Kindle but really enjoyed the feel of the books. So the Kindle I bought for my husband slowly became filled with books and games that I was reading or playing. As a mom of 2 young boys I knew the importance of keeping this jewel hidden. Well my very illustrious hiding place I have to admit was in my master bedroom bathroom…sometimes the only place I could go hide for a moment or two of peace and maybe a game of Jumble!!!! As it happens…little boys start growing up and becoming more curious. My youngest at the time was 2….and very interested in any type of water play. Any type of water….any place….any time! So you can imagine my horror when I happened upon him in my bathroom with my stack of magazines and my Kindle…..topped with an entire roll of toilet paper that had been soaked in water from the toilet!!!!!!!!!!!! I could hardly contain myself! After wiping a tear from my face….grabbed my dear Kindle and ran to the kitchen to try to rescue it by placing it in a bag of rice. Needless to say…after several days of praying, petting and softly talking to my Kindle…I came to the realization that it had gone to Kindle heaven. I was devastated. So here is my plea to BzzAgent to PLEASE choose me for the Kindle campaign so I can once again rekindle my Kindle relationship and get back to that very happy place that Kindle would allow me to go!!!!! In return I will sing its name at the top of my lungs to all my friends, family and followers!!!!!!
The Kindle 3 is ingeniously designed to be everything the iPad will never be: small, light and inexpensive… Now, the Kindle is almost ridiculously lightweight; at 8.5 ounces, it’s a third the weight of the iPad.
And with a wi-fi connection you’re just seconds away from close to a million books. It’s like having access to an entire library from the comforts of your couch. So what book are you going to read?
