Last Night A Kindle Saved My Life

I don’t know why but that song’s been in my head all morning. So naturally, I revised it for this post.

It’s HERE.

Less than 24 hours delivery time - on STANDARD shipping

Amazon, I am beyond impressed.

Hello luhhhhva

I can’t remember when a package made me this excited. (Sorry Griddle/Grill Pan, you just don’t measure up.)

Clearly in the running for a photography award with my iPhone

Not only am I beyond impressed that the Kindle was ordered Wednesday afternoon and delivered less than 24 hours later using their Standard, FREE shipping (it sat in my office’s mailroom over night – torture at it’s finest. I felt like a kid waiting for Santa to come on Christmas morning) it is SO easy to use!

I’m blown away.

It came pre-registered to my Amazon account and in less than 5 minutes I was connected to a wireless network and had my first book downloaded.

I had read an excerpt of this book in Vanity Fair a few mos back (excerpt for them is more like 25 pages) and I LOVED it, and couldn’t put it down. I knew I’d be getting the Kindle (or the device from the Heavens as I will be referring to it) so I’ve made myself wait.

But now Rob Lowe book, you are mine.

I can even make the text size larger to read while I’m on the treadmill this afternoon!

Game. Changer.

I already have a list of books that I want to read after this one:

  • Those Guys Have All the Fun: Inside the World of ESPN
  • The Paris Wife: A Novel
  • Kara Goucher’s Running for Women – From First Steps to Marathons
  • Bossy Pants

I can’t wait!

Do you have an e-reader? (Kindle, iPad, Nook, what have you)

What’s your favorite thing about it?

What is the last book you’ve read that you loved?

  1. Glad your gift from the heavens is in your hands! …The changing of the font size would be a game changer for me too!!!
    I don’t have an e-reader. I just bought a macbook air, so I won’t be getting anything for quite a while….
    So glad that you are pleased! HAVE FUN!!!

  2. the kindle is amazing!!!!! my fav thing about it is I can read off my kindle, or kindle for my mac or kindle on my blackberry! I have read a lot of great books over the past few months: all Chelsea Handler books, Summer and the city-candace bushnell- if you like sex and the city it is about when Carrie, Samantha and Miranda meet, Sarah’s Key- Tatiana de Rosnay, The First Husband by Laura Dave and Skipping a beat-Sarah Pekkanen! All amazing books!
