Dear Santa...


Today I learned about the coolest little gadget EVER. Seriously, I am thinking about selling my plasma so I can get one. I decided to turn on Oprah today and she was introducing her favorite toy. I am now in love with it as well because it is the perfect thing for me and all you out there who love to read. It is called a Kindle and it is awesome.
It's an electronic book where you can download up to 200 books (400 more if you buy a card) and it stores them all in one little computer for you. This is prefect since I don't want to buy books because I have no where to store them and I don't want to pay to move them when we leave the Great North. If you are reading and don't know the meaning of a word, you simply push a button and the definition pops up before your eyes. Want to look something up on wikipedia? You can do that from your Kindle as well. You can download your desired book right from the Kindle without having to use your computer and it is there less than a minute later. Plus, since the books aren't printed on paper, they are much cheaper than if you were to buy a copy in the store (all less than 10 bucks a book!). There is no monthly wireless charge, its all included. Thanks to Oprah, if you go to Amazon.com in the next 7 days and put in the coupon code "oprahwinfrey" you can save $50! I am totally excited except...
The full price is $359 ($309 with the discount) :(

So, Santa, please help me out here. I don't think my husband is going to spring for one of these for me since he already got me a kitchen aid (thanks again Dearest Love). I could sub three days straight and that would pay for it except I am currently saving for a romantic get away with my hot hubby.
Until then, I will dream of the joy that this great item would bring. :)


I know I am dreaming, maybe someday I will buy this so I can be cool like Oprah. But for any of you people out there who have cash to burn and you love to read, you really should get this!

Thanks Nichole. I missed Oprah's show today and you described this gaget perfectly! It seems great. I love to read too and this seems like a great money saver, if only we could afford the initial price. Maybe the price will come down in the future:). I bet it does. I think your trip with your hubby will give you much more pleasure.

I saw this a month or so ago on Amazon and was wanting one too....Like Aunt Nancy I'm going to cross my fingers that the price comes down. Or maybe Santa can bring us all one!;)
