I got a Kindle for Father’s Day!  I know, what is the big deal?  A few years ago, my children started buying me gifts that I would not buy for myself.  It started with an iPod and went from there.  I received the Kindle early because my daughter is on vacation.  After charging it, I looked for some books on the library website.  Odd, I know to look for ebooks at the library.

Within 24 hours, I found two (2) books and downloaded them on to my ereader.  Typical of new technology, I am a convert within a short 24 hour period.  Before getting the Kindle, I could give many reasons not to buy it.  Now that I have one, I love it.  It helps that it was a gift.  It will probably expand my reading since I will have to find authors that the library carries as a ebook.  I do not plan on buying any ebooks, but you never know.  I will either use the library or share books from my friends.

I am 20% into my new book and enjoying the experience.  Have you crossed over into ereaders?  I am starting to wonder, why I was so resistant to it.  I think the only reason was the cost of the ereader.  That is not a problem when  it comes to great personal finance articles.I can also identify the best or my favorite articles of the week.  This makes a good segue to today’s picks for Friday Night Links.

The following articles caught my attention:

The Financial Blogger Finding That Reason Why You Wake Up Everyday

The Simple Dollar Closed Off Unused Rooms

Thousandaire  Public Transportation Increases Productivity

Untemplater  How To Switch Careers:  Real Life Advice To Help You Succeed

Watson  – The Art of Doing Less

The selection of blogs is up to the committee of one established by krantcents as a representative of the Academy of Frugal Journalistic Writers. That committee can be influenced by meaningful comments, signing up for my RSS feeds, backlinks, links, trackbacks, Facebook Likes, Twitter, Re-tweets, Digg, StumbleUpon, delicio, Yahoo Buzz, Google Bookmarks and other social media. If you plan on creating a single purpose political action committee (PAC) to buy advertising on my blog to solely influence the committee, please go ahead! Please understand it will not influence the results.

I read more than five hundred (500) articles a week and I highlight just five (5) in my Friday Night Links.  Happy Father’s Day  Thanks for reading Friday Night Links Kindle Edition.
