Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 16291 comments Yes, unfortunately, I do! I really wish I was a "Trust Fund" baby. LOL!


Jessi (PixiBell) | 72 comments You can always download Kindle to certain smartphones, Ipod touch, and your PC all for free. It's the same way with Nook & Google Books(except the PC download) too.


message 46: by Lisa Kay, Moderator (new)

Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 16291 comments Great point, Jessi! Yes, I did that for over a year. I think I saved so much on getting e-Books from my library that I was able to get my KF.


Ann Noell (FantasyAnnie) | 170 comments yes I do download a few to my smartphone but it is just not the same has haveing a Kindle.


Jessi (PixiBell) | 72 comments I understand although since I have a Nook & Kindle account I'm going to get an Ipad


CaroB (CarobSimms) | 5491 comments Jessi, just in case you're looking to use it mainly to read... I have a friend who bought an iPad and was really disappointed at the battery life compared to an eReader.


message 50: by Lisa Kay, Moderator (new)

Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 16291 comments Oh, the battery life of the Kindle Fire is wonderful! I guess that is what everyone raves about the most on it. So, it is 1/2 the screen size of an iPad, and has all the same features, sans the camera. Just love mine. I wanted to save money on e-books downloaded from my public library; however, I'm spending a fortune on audiobooks b/c it plays them so nicely.
