2019 Kindle – On Sale

2019 kindle

I never had a Kindle. I have only had the Paperwhite and the Oasis. I love them both. I was convinced that I didn’t need an ereader until I had one. I received it as a gift. I think that if I didn’t have one yet, the fact that the price dropped would have convinced me to get one. I would like to know the difference between the original kindle and the paperwhite, though. I am not putting out the money to satisfy my curiosity, though.

New oasis cover

I finally changed the cover on my kindle oasis. I bought the cover before my cruise in February.

I can charge it when the case is on.

It’s kind of heavy, so I can find it in my bag easier

It will lay flat.

It has its own stand.

The only thing I don’t like about it is that it doesn’t open like a book. It is great for reading in bed, though, since it’s heavy enough to find when I fall asleep reading.

Changing my Oasis cover

When I got my oasis, in September, I loved it.  I wanted to protect it as best as I could.  I went searching for a cover.  I found this cover that totally suits me.  It was about $18 at the time.  That was about what they were running, then.  Not much cheaper.

Since I was going on a trip and I planned on reading poolside, I decided that I should find a cover that I don’t really care about, so it wouldn’t get ruined.  I found two cases for under $5 each.  I ended up not changing them out, since I really love the cover that I originally got.  You can see that the edges are a tad worn, but I’ll wait until it’s beaten up a little more before changing it out.  The brand new covers are in a spot where I won’t lose them when it’s time for a change.

Draft posts

While I was on my trip, I started many draft posts. Ideas for future posts, the beginnings of posts that I had in mind and outlined, and posts that I wrote, tagged and just needed to publish. When I got home, I could see that I had over 100 posts that were partially written.

Part of them were from the 20 books and the 40 books topics, so I’m not too worried about catching up there. There are 50ish of them right there. They won’t be ready to go until I actually read the book, so they’ll be sitting there a while.

I am working my way through the posts today, so you’ll be seeing quite a few in the next day or two.

Book seat

I received a book seat for Christmas. I wanted one for a long time, but couldn’t justify the price. The reviews of the seat mentioned to add some marbles inside for weight so it wouldn’t tip over.

I took a look at the zipper, but it was child proofed. I would have had to open the seams to get the zipper open. I decided to try it without the marbles. It works beautifully.

The book, or kindle, can be positioned any way I want it. And it stays. The plastic thing to hold the book open easily moves to turn pages. I have to tip it a bit to see the last line of the kindle page, though. Minor issue.

I can lie down to read. I can put it on my lap. Wherever it settles is perfect. The only issue is that I still can’t see through the cat who wants to sit between my face and whatever I’m reading.

The currently shown position is comfy and shows my Snuggie. The cats love to fight over it. It’s apparently comfy for them, too. I suppose the book seat would be comfy, too, but I try to not let them try it out. Unfortunately, the tag shows in the photo, too.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this book, but it got very intense for me at certain places. I had to put it down and go back to it a lot. It was worth finishing, mostly because I needed to know what was going to happen.

From word of mouth, I knew the ending was going to leave me thinking. It certainly did. I think it’s going to be on my mind for a while.
