My wife was given a Kindle by her employer for Christmas 2010. Christmas 2011, her boss gave her a 'Kindle Fire', and I was handed down her first one. At first I said "wow, an over grown iPhone for books, great." I didn't appreciate this hand me down e-book, until Janis Test with the Abilene Library, told me that I can check-out books with my Kindle and that the library has a 'Conquer your Kindle' class that I needed to take. That class is coming up again.

With more and more books becoming available in 'e-book' form, more and more people are going back to reading more. I got bit by the bug too, I love this new kindle thing, now that I understand it better. The fact was, I didn't know a lot about my hand me down kindle, for example, I didn't know I can re-size and/or change the text. My wife's new Kindle Fire can do a lot more than what she's using it for, so we'll both be going back the The Abilene Public Library for the 'Conquer your Kindle' class.
