Kindle Suprise

As Elaine's birthday is coming up she has been going on and on about getting a bloody Kindle!

So ... whilst enjoying being dragged around Tescos doing the normal boring shopping I was also dragged over to the Kindle viewing area!  As per usual we started looking at the bog standard kindle but ended up buying the GT version called the 'Kindle Fire' ... although you can go one further and buy the Kindle Fire HD.  She is setting it up at the moment so we will have a full report later.

Whilst there I bought a book ... just a book, a good old book.  When you have finished a book it comes in handy for all sorts of things ... it evens out wonky tables, you can make a table leg out of a pile of books, you can hit people with a book and it doesn't leave too much of a bruise, you can shoot people through a book to prevent splatter - plus the added bonus of acting as a  silencer, you can squash large bugs with a book, you can use them for emergency toilet roll and on a narrow boat they are very good for balancing the boat by distributing the books throughout the boat.  Now you can't do any of  that with a bloody kindle, especially the toilet roll!
