KINDLE CANDY

 

My mom gave me a Kindle for the holidays and it's one of those things that you didn't know you "needed" until you have one. I freaking love the thing, and am already on my third book in two weeks! Reading helps me fall asleep waaaaaay better than watching dumb shows on my DVR. Typically I go through reading cycles where I'll read constantly for three months, then I stop for three months. I have no idea why, but that tends to happen. 

First I read Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back because my dad's wife was talking about it over the holidays, and I honestly was not impressed, nor did I really believe the book. I won't get into religion, but let's just say I could have gone without reading it.

Then I read Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls, who wrote The Glass Castle, which was one of my favorite books. Great book. Highly recommend it.

Now I'm reading Home by Morning by Alexis Harrington. So far it's good. I bought it because it was $2.99 on the Kindle, and am pleasantly surprised.


The Kindle I have is so tiny, it fit in this kate spade pouch (on sale in stores now, but not online anymore). I wanted a zipper on mine and wanted it as slim as possible so this was perfect for throwing in my bag with all of my other stuff so I won't scratch my Kindle. For more Kindle covers, check out this post I did on them. And the west elm white lacquer tray above you can get here.

I don't have a kindle (I love turning pages!) but I would totally use that green kate spade case as a clutch!

Love this photo! I've been contemplating getting an iPad and this post just pushed me a little more! (even if they are completely different)

I love the case that you chose! I remember seeing tweets and a post trying to decide which to get. That one is so chic and a great color as well! I hope all is well!

Be sure to check out the freebies for Kindle. There are usually a few good reads, and they are free! Best part about the Kindle is downloading a book at 2 a.m.! I am on my second Kindle and have given both of my sisters Kindles. Now we can share books. My daughter gave me a Cole Haan Kindle cover. Classic, but not as chic as your Kate Spade!

I have been debating on whether or not I should I buy a kindle. Thank you for sharing :)
