Christmas Stocking Goodie

You know what this is? (I know, lots of quizzes about articles of clothing.)
No, it's not a sock! It WAS a sock, but now it's the cover for my Kindle. Good fit, cozy... I'm going to attach a button and loop closure on the other side.
Oh, yes, I did. I did say "my Kindle."
Cranky got one for Christmas, and he reads it so much, I can't get a minute of battery time. So when Amazon knocked $50 off the price, I got one of my own.
Naturally, I predicted that Amazon was selling off stock because they would be coming out with a new model. And naturally, I was right. Their new Kindle, due in time for holiday gifting, will have sound, color, and a touch screen. I mean, it's practically an iPad, at half the price.
I know. Amazon forces its employees to work in an overheated warehouse in Pennsylvania. Maybe they'll get that fixed.

:) All corporations are evil, it is the way of them.
But don't you already have an ipad?

Mouse: I merely want one of everything!
Kindle has great battery life.

Congrats on your Kindle. Happy reading!

Zoomie: Of course we'll never abandon the printed word, but this device is so convenient. Thanks!

Cute idea--I love it!

Southern Cookie said...

LOVE the idea! Gonna have to make one for Bufatsa's iPad... especially since he goes thru socks quicker than bags of chips!

Hungry Dog: You just need a criterial "sockie" sock. A gym sock would be sad.

Southern Cookie: Its good for those of us who aren't easily embarrassed. I don't think they make socks large enough for the iPad, though. Little baby T-shirt, maybe?

Southern Cookie said...

The baby tee is an even better idea since his daughters keep making him a granddad. So there's no shortage of those either. Thanks for the input! He'll have a "baby iPad" in his hands soon enough, hopefully with some great saying on it to get at him every time he sees it. Gosh, I'm such a pain in the butt! Hee, hee!

Southern Cookie: Now I'm jealous of Bufatsa's iPad cover, even though it was me who thought it up. Tip: keep the little sleeves on, flapping cutely.
I gotta go to Salvation Army!

I understand, I want one of of many things, and would rather own than borrow!
I've the kindle ap on my ipad, and the apple version as well, and friends keep telling me about others :)

Do I need a Kindle?

(no need to answer, I don't even have an iPhone yet, just getting very tempted)

cookiecrumb said...

Mouse: I have the Kindie and Appie apps too. Nice. Big battery eaters, though. Device collecting vice!

Bewitch: I don't even have an iPhone myself. Wait on the Kindle until the new one comes out. It might be all you need.
