I'm on Fire!

My Kindle Fire

I sometimes think I take this book obsession too far. Not only do I buy books, use the library, and own a Nook Color, I have now bought myself a Christmas present: the Kindle Fire. It came yesterday. 

Does one really need two e-readers? 

Apparently I do. I already had Kindle books on my laptop and my android phone but I don't like to read on the laptop and reading on the phone's small screen gets to be a bit much. So when the Kindle Fire went on sale on Amazon on Cyber Monday I quickly clicked 'Add to Cart'.

Here is a sampling of the free Kindle books that I already had:

Common Sense by Thomas Paine
Lazy Thoughts of a Lazy Girl (Sister of that "Idle Fellow") by Jenny Wren
Bleak House by Charles Dickens
Literary Lapses by Stephen Leacock
Meditations by Marcus Aurelius
Poems by Emily Dickinson
My Man Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse

My thinking was that most of them, except Bleak House, could be accessed on my phone and parts read quickly while waiting in an airport, doctor's office, or at a coffee shop. Now that I have a 'big screen' to read them on, I am looking forward to digging in. And I am looking forward to finding more free books of which Amazon has plenty.
