I am so in love with my Kindle Fire that's it's crazy. My husband bought it for me right after my second ankle surgery as an early Christmas gift. The idea was that it would be an easy, portable way for me to remain “connected” to friends and family on the web.
With my Kindle Fire, I'm able to check my facebook, email, and my blog. I can even watch movies and tv shows through my Amazon Prime subscription, or through the Hulu and Netflix apps. And I can do it while laying down in bed because it's so small and light.
And I can load all my ebooks on it too! I already have a Nook, but it's nice having everything all in one place. And since I take my Kindle with me pretty much wherever I go, I always have something to read...which has been especially nice when I had doctor's appointments to wait on.
Speaking of reading...one of the nice options when using the browser that comes with the Kindle is the “Reading View” button. I use this to read websites and blogs many times. All you do is click the button and it makes whatever you are reading easier on the eyes. So when you come across that blog with the lime green and black color scheme, your eyes no longer need to bug out. (*Disclaimer...for some weird reason, the “Reading View” button doesn't always show up. I don't know if it's random, or if it's something I'm doing?)

Also, when I get bored I play solitaire on it. My kids make fun of me because, apparently, there are a ton more exciting games I can get on my Kindle. But I like solitaire!
Honestly, my Kindle is one of the best gifts that I've ever gotten. It's truly a multitasking machine that I can stick in my purse and take anywhere. And the best part was that we got it on sale :)
