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
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.
