All Fired Up

I ran into the Head of Dietary Services today at my mom’s nursing home.  The first thing he said when he saw me was, “Hey, guess what I got for Christmas!”

“A Kindle Fire,” I replied.

“Yes,” he said, looking surprised that I’d guessed so quickly.

“I got one, too,” I laughed.  “Aren’t they great?”

“I love it,” he answered.  “Well, I just had to tell you because you’re the one who got me started with Kindles in the first place.”

Yes, I had.  He’d been at a caregivers’ meeting I’d attended last year and he saw me sitting there reading my Kindle before the meeting started.  One thing led to another and soon I was extolling the virtues of e-readers and the Kindle, in particular.  He had his own Kindle within a week and he got his wife one later that year.

I’m telling you, once you’ve used a Kindle, you are quickly hooked.   Goodness, I’ll even expand that to include Nooks.  These e-readers are just fantastic little techno-doodads.

There’s no better illustration of the passionate nature of e-reader aficionados than an obituary I read in the paper yesterday.  It said, in part….

   “…..loved to read anything she could get her hands on.  After she purchased her Kindle, she never left home without it.”

Amen, Sister!
