ABC K will catch up the J

We returned last night from a week away--and I did not take my laptop with me. So last Wednesday I was all set to do my J post using my Kindle (That's the K!!!) and the Wi-Fi in the motel. And if you stopped by to check, you found that all I managed to do was post a title. I could not get into the editing box to open the Kindle's tiny keyboard to do any more. The picture I was going to use was one I used not long before when the Headbangers' theme was Leap. My Leap picture could easily become:
Jumping Jeff
And it was Jeff's birthday the day I was trying to post it as well. I thought that appropriate!

You can see Jumping Jeff in the blog right there on the Kindle Fire as I  pulled it up on Wi-Fi this morning at coffee.

Good for a quick internet visit, but not that great for updating your blog. I haven't had it long, so I am sure I will figure out more and more
 ways to use it.

In the meantime, it's main use is quite obvious. It is for a wide collection of reading materials, including Liz Hind's novel, This Time Next Year available here if you are a Brit and here if you are in the US.

 (You don't have to have a Kindle to read it. There are apps to read it on your computer.)


Another friend wrote Repeating History, a time travel tale set in Yellowstone National Park. Meg Justus is a librarian and archivist.We share a passion for quilting and the National Parks.  I got her book for my Kindle at Amazon, and highly recommend it. 

You can see that I have quite a few books on my Kindle shelf, including two different Bible translations and a Lives of the Saints.

So K is for Kindle which can show us J is for Jeff Jumping.

Your Kindle is different to mine - it has colour. Wow!

The book looks worth exploring.

We got the newest version with the backlighting (Hubby's is a Nook Color, mine is a Kindle Fire) so that we could read in the dark of our tiny trailer while camping without the hassle of flashlights and lanterns.

I find Kindle's interesting because they might encourage people to be readers more often BUT I like to tun the pages of a book with my fingers. . . so will probably never buy one.

I missed you! Come see my new last snow blog for now. . .

I missed some too so mine is J and K. Wifi was hard to find in southern France and Italy, so even though I had my IPad I couldn't blog. Fun post. Blessings, Debbie
