The world's best use for a plastic baggie, like ever.
It's not for lunch.
It's not for leftovers.
It's not for use as a piping bag.
It's not for a makeshift icepack.
The best use for a plastic zip-top baggie is to safely seal away a Kindle to read in the bathtub!
No more soggy pages stuck together and drying into ripples that don't lay flat anymore! No more attempting to balance a heavy book out of the water while trying to relax.
Never thought I'd appreciate a plastic baggie this much. ;-)
I'm not sure this baggie trick will work on readers that use a swiping motion on the screen, but since the Kindle has buttons on the sides for page-turning, it works like a charm!
After a few years of being interested in a Kindle, I finally got one this Christmas. I went with the bare-bones cheapest model. I didn't want any bells and whistles on an e-reader, I just wanted to be able to read, period. The less fancy, the more likely my children will keep their hands off it! I still need to learn all the ins and outs of Kindling (that's a verb, right?), but so far I'm really enjoying it.
When I'm not reading on my Kindle is chilling in this adorable cover/case I ordered from etsy. :)
You know, for love of elephants. :)
Coincidently, the first book I read on the Kindle was Water for Elephants. I had hesitations about reading it, because as I shared before, I really despise the circus, but the story did not attempt to make the circus endearing (nor, go out of its way to villainize it... animal circuses tend to do that well enough on their own!).
I'd love to hear from Kindle users any tips or tricks you have! So far I know that I can get one free download a month from the Kindle Lending Library for being an Amazon Prime subscriber (I got Water for Elephants as my December freebie!).
Just yesterday I learned of the Kindle Daily Deal, where one title is severely discounted. I got The Handmaid's Tale for $1.29 the other day, but missed The Life of Pi, which was available for only 99 cents the day before I found out about the Daily Deal!
What are your public domain favorites? I love the bevy of free downloads in this category! I'm starting in on Pride and Prejudice (I'm embarrassed to admit I've never read it) and working my way (slowly) through Benjamin Franklin's autobiography.
Oh! And Happy New Year's Eve! Be safe out there! :)
