For those who don't know, I turned seventeen in August. I usually have to birthday party. A "friend" birthday party and a "family" party. I deccided to wait till Spring to have my "friend" party to have an Alice in Wonderland Unbirthday Tea Party. My family party was FINALLY yesterday.
My cousins are amazing. Guess what they got me?
An Amazon Kindle.
A FREAKING AMAZON KINDLE!!!!!!!!
I was screaming, because Mike, my cousin and main source of book recommendations, had also bought me MOCKINGJAY and it was on my beauteous kindle!! I'm SO excited!! He also put a buncha free books on including all the Jane Austen books, a good amount of Shakespeare, Alice in Wonderland, the Wizard of Oz, and much more. I, of course, also downloaded a bunch more free books, including Edgar Allen Poe's complete works.
The Kindle is amazing. I can highlight passages, which I LOVE. I can't do this in regular books, just because I feel it is almost blasphemous to write in/highlight an actual book.
I am soo excited! SQUEE! I'll have to start saving my money so I can start getting more books!
