I have been wanted a Kindle for a really long time but just wouldn't breakdown and spend the money. A Kindle is an electronic reader. It will hold up to 3,500 books and the books are downloaded from the internet. I was talking to my dear son the other day and he was telling me he had received a promotion and raise in salary in his job. He was very excited. I kiddingly said to him "since you are in such a good mood, would this be the time to tell you I would like a Kindle for Christmas?" LOL! He said "Mom, actually, that is what I am planning to get you as I knew you wanted one"! A few minutes later I received an email of an order confirmation from Amazon. He bought me a Kindle -- not just any Kindle -- the top of the line Kindle DX with a 9-inch screen!!!! I was in tears. I was so excited! I am already enjoying an early Christmas gift.
The first book that I downloaded was "Prayers for Sale" by Sandra Dallas. One of my internet swap buddies, Sharon, told me about the book. It is set in the 1800's. And, of course, typical of Sandra Dallas' books, it always references quilts!! The book was just as good as Sharon said. I really enjoyed it. My favorite part of the book is this passage...."A quilt circle's like a crazy quilt. You got all kinds in it. Some members are the big pieces of velvet or brocade, show-offish, while others are bitty scraps of used goods, hoping you don't notice them. But without each and every one, the quilt would fall apart." This really struck me as a very accurate description of a quilting group.
If you get a chance, I hope you will read Prayers for Sale.
