Miriam, my daughter-in-law was skyping me and I thought it was so neat that Baby Ella is right next to her father who was on my wallpaper on my computer.

My new Kindle!!!!

I am sure everyone knows about the Amazon Kindle!!!
It has a wireless connection so you can order books, newspapers and magazines
in a second. I have ordered and am reading Sarah Palin's book...I really love
the fact that you can sample a book before you buy...they send you a couple of
chapters for free and you can buy or not. You can save your books in archives.
It is about 8 inches long and 4 inch width...light weight and you can read in the
bright sun light.
Oh I forgot one of the best feature's, if you don't know what a word means you put the
cursor in front of that word and the definition appears.
