Revision Cave Has Critters & My Kindle Love

My kids are the critters. <g>  They get bored and come in to chat, so the writing gets interrupted. But that’s okay. I’m still getting a lot done and I love them like crazy.

I broke my cave rule though to share that I LOVE MY KINDLE.

Yeah, I recently got one and oh man, is it the coolest thing.  It’s hardly ever out of my sight. I’m buying a LOT of books-way more than I have in the past couple of years. Sometimes daily. I’m not only buying from Amazon, but they are getting a lot of business from me right now. (Which is why I’ll eventually get a Nook and Sony to spread the support around. )

But I buy or pre-order and the books arrive on my reader like magic. (I’m charged the day they’re delivered, so I’m thinking these have to count toward first week sale numbers.) I can make the print bigger when my eyes are tired from writing on a screen all day. I can shut it down, turn it on and it’s on the page I left it. It weighs next to nothing. I can put books into different categories. OH! I can email my own work to it for free and read my stuff like it’s a book. (Love that part!)

The only downside so far is I do miss the pretty book covers and I won’t read on it in the bathtub. Too clumsy. So, I’ll still be buying print books from my favorite authors, but I’m a fan of ebooks too. I kind of feel the need to share that because there have been a lot of recent blow-ups on the Internet about them.  I have so many favorite authors and I believe 100 percent in supporting them, but I do hope ebook sales count because it’s hard to beat the convenience.

About Rinda Elliott

Writer.I love unusual stories and credit growing up in a family of curious life-lovers who moved all over the country. Books and movies full of fantasy, science fiction and romance kept us amused, especially in some of the stranger places. For years, I tried to separate my darker side with my humorous and romantic one. I published short fiction, but things really started happening when I gave in and mixed it up. When not lost in fiction, I love making wine, collecting music, gaming and spending time with my husband and two children. I’m represented by Miriam Kriss of the Irene Goodman Agency.

  1. Exactly how I feel about my Kindle. It didn’t make me buy less books in print, I just by print ones and others for Kindle. Love mine.

    I got a Kindle for my birthday. Use to laugh at the idea but not I love it.
    And yeah, kids do like to stop the writing process.

    I’m so bad, I haven’t been able to pick the right cover and have it wrapped in a soft cloth. 😉
