The week before Christmas, as I was perusing the internet, I noticed the Kindle Paperwhite was on sale on Amazon.
I mentioned it to my boyfriend because I couldn’t decide if I should get it, adding that it’s good for the eyes for hours of reading and can hold many books.
His short response was that I shouldn’t get it. His reasoning was because I already own an iPad with the Kindle app which was basically the same thing and because I sporadically like to buy physical books.
Though my heart kept going back to it, his voice kept running through my head.
On Christmas morning, as I waited for him to get ready, I decided that I did in fact want it. But when I signed on to Amazon, I discovered the sale was over. I was heartbroken and figured it was meant to be.
I trudged down the stairs to greet his family a Merry Christmas and we all had breakfast. When we started to open presents, I was so surprised I almost cried. That devil played me!
If you couldn’t guess it from the title on this post – I now own my own Kindle Paperwhite!
I’ve since bought the Fintie Composition Book cover, downloaded a bajillion books, and dusted off my public library card so I can use their free e-book rentals!
Best present I’ve received this Christmas – just in time for my Hong Kong trip! Thanks, Scruffy!
