    I noticed a lot of you got a Kindle Fire for Christmas and I was just wondering what you thought of them. I was thinking of getting me one!

    Every review on the Kindle Fire that I have read was negative. I've had my plain ol' kindle for over a year now and love it. I bought my DH a Kindle Touch for Christmas this past year; he loves it.

    Cool thanks for the info. I actually read some pretty good reviews but still wasn't sure so I thought I would ask all of you.

    I personally don't have the kindle fire. (I have the iphone so I downloaded the kindle app and just use that). My friends (husband and wife) both have their own and they love it. Im talking about they are always reading a book for messing around with apps on there. Im not really sure how the apps work- but I know she can get on facebook from her fire.

    I have also heard good things about the Barnes & Noble Nook. Not sure if you have looked at them at all. I did when they first came out. They have a feature where you can be inside the book store (drinking coffee or just enjoying the quiet) and you can read books for free. You have a certain amount of time, but if you work or live close to a B&N you can go in for your lunch break or something like that and read a full book thru out the week. Another feature they have is if your friend also has the Nook, you can share books for free. I believe its 2 weeks at a time, then they charge you for it. But if you friend buys it you can read it for 2 weeks, then give it back, then get it again so you can finish the book.

    I have a friends mom who has the original Kindle and she is always reading it. And my grandmother got a Nook for Christmas. The only reason I never bought one is because I love holding a book and reading it. If I am spending the money on a book, I want the physical book in my hands. And another reason is my husband and I read the same books, so when Im done he reads and vice versa, so it would get to be a pain always waiting to get my hands on the kindle.

    I will say tho that I have heard great things about the fire.

    My sister has the kindle fire. I have the kindle touch (I'm into simplicity). She loves it! Hasn't had a single complaint yet. Apparently it's so simple, even my 2 year old nephew has the Thomas the Train stories figured out as far as how to turn the pages and where to touch [​IMG]
