I’ve entered the 21st century and got a Kindle! I’m not too sure at the moment… It is a bit heavier than I thought. We did have a discussion before on this blog about e-books and hard copies and the hard copies won, but I thought I’d give it a go. I can’t wait to use it to read e-books from our online school library. It’s easy to forget that we have a reading cloud, but with such a wealth of stories on there it would be madness not to use it.
Part of my reasoning behind getting a Kindle was to reduce the weight of my luggage when I go on a big trip in America this summer. I am mega excited about travelling down the west coast and there will be lots of opportunities to have a good read and relax. However, we are going for three weeks – how am I supposed to get three weeks worth of books in my suitcase?! Solution: Kindle.
I will be visiting my sister out there who lives in California and she has helped me plan things that we will be doing. I had no idea, but apparently there is a Universal Studios theme park near her inHollywood and they have a whole Harry Potter section!! They have Hogwarts, rides and even Diagon Alley! My friend went to something similar in Florida, but I didn’t realise there was another one in America! I’m so excited!!! I am unashamed to say that I will very excited for this part of the trip!
