thank you amazon


I love my Kindle. I read over 60 books in 2011, all on the Kindle. Being kind of on vacation for the last 4 months, I have enjoyed reading a lot.


Right now I am reading Stephen King's 11/22/63:


On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? Stephen King’s heart-stoppingly dramatic new novel is about a man who travels back in time to prevent the JFK assassination—a thousand page tour de force.



There are lots and lots of free books available for Kindle, from Amazon and lots of other places including the public library.

Websites and blogs keep up with these freebies, like:

and

I love Amazon

Not only the prices and selection of almost anything you would want for general shopping and gift giving throughout the year, the free shipping, but the thing I love most is their memory, so I want to take this opportunity to say

Thank You Amazon

From all of us memory-challenged individuals who try to purchase a kindle book (because it is free today) and get a message across the top of the screen:

Instant Order Update. You purchased this item on December 23, 2011.

Or what they really mean to say - you already have this one dummy!

That Stephen King title has me intrigued. (How does it fit with his "horror" bent?)

Also, "Where would I fit it in between Brown Bear & Goodnight Moon?"

I am an Amazon addict, as well!

Donna finished reading her copy of Stephen King's 11/22/63 last week, and I posted the beginning lines: http://bonniesbooks.blogspot.com/2011/12/beginning-at-graduation.html

Maybe we could discuss it, like by emailing each other questions or comments as we read it. Want to? I'll start reading it tonight.

Susan,
Amazon is the only way to go. Congrats on all your books, reading 60 books in 2011 is amazing, wow. My sister in law is reading this book right now and I can't wait to get my hands on it. My favorite writing from Stephen King is the Shawshank Redemption. I really don't care for his other works, I'm not a horror kind of person. This book looks very interesting.
