C’mon baby, light my fire

I just bought a Kindle! Or at least, the household bought me a Kindle. I was about to purchase my own but Mr L said it could be my birthday present. What a nice man.

So. Talk to me, people. What do you read on your Kindle? How do you deploy it? Make me some suggestions and give me some hints and tips, please?

I  got the Touch as I wanted Audio book capability. I have an Audible account and having the Kindle will make it easier to listen to books while I spin or knit.

If nothing else, it will give me something to do on the ferry, other than knitting plain vanilla socks.

Here’s the first Narcissus sock

It’s the left one. There’s a fairly horrible mistake during the toe chart. I discovered it five rounds on and could not be bothered to fix it.

The right sock has begun and I am working on the ribbing. It will have to wait now – I’ve promised to do some puzzling with Mr L, the least I can do considering that he just bought me a Kindle.

I shall needing to make a pouch for my new toy. Any recommendations for a pattern or shall I just go all creative on the project? I do quite like this one…

and I am wondering if “Double Knitting” in this case equates to “Twined Knitting,” which is a skill I have long been wanting to pick up. The pattern is pricey for such a small object, at £3, and it is not clear to me whether different sizes are available – I see that this one is for the Keyboard model. All the same, it has features of merit – I love the neat  picot edge. I do have a spare skein of Jitterbug, and many oddments.

When BT finally fix the Broadband, I shall be downloading some classics to read on my Kindle. Until that happens, our connection is far too slow for such fun and games. I’ll just make a list of suggestions…

    I read anything on my Kindle! It is worth looking at the top 100 free books on Amazon to see what you fancy. Also, check in with the Daily Deal to see what you want to read for 99p.
    I try to limit myself to one full-priced book a month. It is so easy to buy stuff without really thinking. I’m currently reading the 4th book in the Game of Thrones series.
    Also, copy your Rav library of pdfs on there, so you will always have a few patterns on hand.
