Only, I didn’t get one for Christmas. I gave one to each of my adult children, two of them married (so they have to share). My daughter-in-law, who’s gone back to school for a degree in nursing, is excited about being able to do a lot of work for her classes on her ‘Fire.’ Exclaiming over such apps as, “Oh look, I can take a free chemistry test!” And was wowed by the app for studying anatomy. Not for everyone, but I’m pleased she’s delighted.
My older daughter immediately downloaded Angry Birds and Pandora. Discovered she can watch instant Netflix on it…Facebook, of course, was honed in on. Also, by my recent college graduate. My son-in-law was so impressed he said he was going home and throwing the laptop away–no, he didn’t really, but you get the point. Everyone exclaimed over all their finds and yes, by the way, you can also read my books on there. Not that they fell all over that particular feature, but you can. Yep, Kindle Fire takes you right to Amazon’s kindle store, as well as everything else you might want. The little people were also intrigued. Not that I’d trust a four-yr-old with a Kindle Fire (why I also got warranties.)
To say this gift was a big hit would almost be an understatement. My mom thinks she wants one–so much for that Nook she was considering. The wow factor of the Kindle Fire must be seen to be believed. Yes, now I want one too. But I’m keeping the laptop, unless I give up writing altogether and just play in the world of Kindle Fire.
