Good morning!! We’ve been out of oats for a few days, and we are finally restocked. M and I gobbled down some whipped banana oatmeal made with flax and topped with Greek yogurt and this new flavor of Barney Butter:
Pret-ty good!! But not as good as the classic : )
I finished reading The Girl On The Train last night. Really good!! It didn’t end how I expected it to, but still a satisfying ending. And an even better read because I finally got a Kindle!!
For years I’ve been reading on tablets and phones thinking that I didn’t really need a third device. The Kindle app is great, and tablets worked just fine for me, so I thought. But it wasn’t until recently when an Amazon deal had the Kindle on sale that I thought: maybe there is a reason so many people have them. With an urge to read more, I bit the bullet and my expectations have been SMASHED! I got the Kindle Paperwhite so I could read in the dark and am so happy with it.
1) First off the battery life makes a world of a difference. My tablet battery dies daily, and I’d often get into bed to find it un-readable. The Kindle battery lasts for ever (like a month) between charges.
2) The feel. It’s so much lighter than a tablet and therefore so much easier to hold. I love the grippy edges, and the feel of the screen when you “turn a page” is sooo nice. I just love the overall feel in my hands – so much more book-like than a tablet. Also, the screen takes a really long time to lock, so you can put your book down and get back into it without having to unlock a screen.
3) The anti-glare. I can’t tell you how hard it was to read a book on my phone on the beach. I had to make the text huge and the glare was horrible! I just sucked it up though because….why would I need a Kindle? Anti-glare is worth every penny alone. Here’s me reading on our deck in bright sunlight!
And the best part? I’m reading more!! = Always a bonus. I’m inspired by Caitlin’s Book A Week project, so I’m trying to get my read on more often. I am starting this book tonight at Jenna’s recommendation!
Blake and I have been busy in the kitchen already this morning. Can’t wait to share these with you!
