About a month ago I finally broke down and bought a Kindle Paperwhite. Initially, I was pretty against an e-reader. The thing is I have always enjoyed the smell, feel, and weight of books. I thought having an e-reader would take a lot of these things away from me. However, my upcoming trip got me thinking about what a nightmare it would be to lug around books and/or try to buy English books in Spanish speaking countries. So a couple clicks on Amazon and I couldn’t be happier. This version has a built-in light, which is perfect for when I am on the plane or outside. I also love the one-click book access.This was a super smart buy!
Like and iPad, the Kindle does not come with anything to cover the screen when you store it, which hasn’t been a problem as it mostly stays on my nightstand. Yet, my upcoming trip has necessitated that I get a cover. Rather than buying one off Amazon, I crocheted a cute monster case.
Isn’t it cute! I made it using some acrylic scrap yarn from my early knitting days. I am a little concerned about the durability of the case, but my creation is only suppose to act as a sleeve rather than a protective case. I guess I will let you know how it works out!
