New Kindle!

I got something awesome in the mail today!  My new Kindle has arrived!  I was lucky enough to snag a cheap one on Amazon’s Prime Day this past Wednesday.  I have been wanting to get a regular Kindle for awhile now.  I already have the Kindle Fire HD but that thing has some crazy glare on it.  And it functions better as a tablet than an e-reader.  I was originally going to save up for the Kindle Paperwhite but when I saw this, it was a deal I couldn’t refuse!

And they had Kindle accessories on sale too so I got this awesome looking cover for it!

IMG_20150717_190009I decided to do a side-by-side comparison with my Kindle Fire to see just how big a difference there was when it came to the glare.

IMG_20150717_191744I had my back to our closed curtains in our living room and there was still a huge glare on the Fire.  But now I don’t have to worry about that because I have my new Kindle with zero glare!  Although nothing beats a physical book, I still love having access to e-books.

In other news, I am spending my night now watching Serena which is based on the novel of the same name by Ron Rash, starring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper.

I have been waiting so long to watch this because I really enjoyed the book.  I was going to get it at Redbox but completely forgot but luckily Netflix has it!  I’m a little nervous because it isn’t getting the best reviews.

What are you up to on this Friday night?

    • The movie was okay, not horrible but not great. Another score for the book being better than the movie. I don’t regret watching it but I don’t know if I’ll ever watch it again. There are quite a few sex scenes if you are sensitive to that.

  1. Love your Kindle! I’ve been wanting to get a kindle. I usually read my e-books on my iPad and my iPhone with the Kindle app, but it’s totally killing my eyes! I’m about 95% sure that’s why I have to wear glasses now!

    • Yeah! I usually read my ebooks on the Kindle app on my phone or the Fire which is basically another computer screen. After spending a few hours reading on the Kindle, my eyes don’t hurt at all! It’s awesome!

      • After spending time reading on my iPhone or my iPad, I can’t see anything! Everything around me is so blurry that I have to get my glasses. It’s insane! I definitely want to get a kindle soon! I don’t want to wreck my eyes worse. I work in front of a computer all day as part of my job too, so I’m constantly staring at screens and bright lights! Not good!

  2. Yay, congrats on the new Kindle!! I have a Fire and a Paperwhite, and there’s no doubt that the glare on the Fire is horrible for reading. I never read on my Fire because of it. I’m glad you got such a great deal! Enjoy it!!

  3. Enjoy your new Kindle! I have an older model, and I love it. The glare issue is a biggie for me, which is why I keep going back to my Kindle rather than reading on my tablet. Easy on the eyes!
