I got a Kindle Fire last year and I really like it. I read so much more now that I can carry a library in my purse.

It's also nice that I can synch it with my phone, and if I end up waiting around for something (waiting room, daughters taekwando practice, being the first person knocked out of a poker match) I can read my books. It opens to the last page read on any of my devices and saves, so no matter what I pick up next, I am on the right page.

It's also nice for travel, because I loaded a few games on it and when the little one gets bored in the back-seat, I can hand it to her and she can play games or watch the movies that I download to it.
I really don't like her playing with my phone, and playing with the kindle is a compromise. I don't miss calls, she doesn't change settings or run the battery in the phone down. Happy-happy.

My mom sees it as a status symbol thing, but she also thinks shopping at Target is uppity.
