Kindle Fire Giveaway….JOY!

Kindle Fire Giveaway….JOY!

Here at The Point we are busy getting school done and doing some small projects around the house. The makeover on my boys’ bathroom a few weeks ago showed me how much I also need to paint their bedroom, so I’m doing that this week and we have a full load of schoolwork (be sure to check out my organized schoolroom).

With all of the traveling I am also doing I like to unwind with a good book and what better way to do that than with my Kindle?! It’s easy to carry, marks my place (much better than the piece of toilet paper bookmark I use in paper books) and I can even listen to audio books on it when I’m driving (or during my morning walks). Do you have a Kindle?

Well guess what?! You just might get to win one!!!

  21. I’m not sure I’d be the one to use it LOL – though I have downloaded a number of free books for homeschooling that I would love to be able to take with me to read! My darling girl has been wanting a Kindle because our library offers book downloads that she’d enjoy!

Sometimes it just helps coming from an outside source.

  33. My 13 y.o. son got a Kindle 3 yrs ago as a reward for achieving a goal I set for him in his school work. I have been surprised at what good care he took of his Kindle. Never dropped it or lost it and used it daily for reading, dictionary, Bible and games. Well one day after being charged it wouldn’t turn on and nothing we did would make it come on…it is dead. :o( So if I won the Kindle I would give it to my son!

  34. I’ve been wanting a Kindle recently after trying out my husband’s tablet. I LOVE to read so it would be handy to have when traveling or going to appts, etc. And it would be great for my kids to use as well (when I’m willing to share with them)!

    Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    Kindle I would just be elated! I’m a new mommy to a 9 month old baby boy! I would definitely curl up in my bed with my little
    Guy at night and read until our hearts content. I’ve loved books since I was a child and since we are military and move around a lot this would definitely cut down on the many boxes of books we always pack at moving time πŸ˜‰ I would love to use it every Tuesday at the bible study I attend not to mention I love to cook so the kindle would definitely be a necessity in the kitchen!

  57. I would replace my old kindle fire that runs around 6 hours a day and keeps shutting down on me half way through what I am reading. It’s limping along but only just.

  58. Books to read of course! Between me and eight children we could use more Kindles! We have 2 of the basic kindles, no Kindle Fire. We would also use the Fire to play music, audio books, movies and shows for my 1yo who has multiple medical appointments (6-15 a month). The hour drive each way to the hospital and wait time in offices really adds up for a 1 year old.

  59. We do have one Kindle, but my kids would be overjoyed with another!
