TIP ‘O THE DAY: New Kindle “Paperwhite” coming!

A heads up!

I enjoy using my Kindle.

A new version of the Kindle Paperwhite will be available in these USA on the feast of St. Jerome. You lot across the Atlantic will have to wait until the Feast of St. John Leonard.*

If you are going to get one, for yourself or as a gift, you can pre-order now.

Please do me the favor of using my link if you do! (Or if you need anything else for that matter!)


*That’s 30 September and 9 October for those of you in Columbia Heights.

    I find it a bit much to see a plug for Kindle (whose television ad campaign included a pro gay marriage spot last February) right after a post titled “Homosexualists destroy another Christian business.”
    Just saying… [Aren’t you the clever one? You might be saying that, but I still love my Kindle, and you aren’t saying anything else! On your way out: Buy a Kindle using my link?]

  2. StWinefride says:

    “If I speak with the tongues of men, and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And if I should have prophecy and should know all mysteries, and all knowledge, and if I should have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. And if I should distribute all my goods to feed the poor, and if I should deliver my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. Charity is patient, is kind: charity envieth not, dealeth not perversely; is not puffed up; Is not ambitious, seeketh not her own, is not provoked to anger, thinketh no evil;

    Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth with the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never falleth away: whether prophecies shall be made void, or tongues shall cease, or knowledge shall be destroyed. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, that which is in part shall be done away.

    When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child. But, when I became a man, I put away the things of a child. We see now through a glass in a dark manner; but then face to face. Now I know in part; but then I shall know even as I am known. And now there remain faith, hope, and charity, these three: but the greatest of these is charity”.
    1 Cor 13:1-13

    Looks like a good product. I used to have the original Kindle until one day i accidentally leaned on the screen with my hand and poof! Since then I bought the Kindle Fire which I find useful when I travel as I can check email and surf the web (including this blog of course) as well as read books. It was nice that all the books that I had purchased for my old Kindle got automatically downloaded from Amazon’s “cloud” onto my new device.

    However I have to admit I have mixed feelings about the whole e-book phenomenon. I still prefer to buy paper books particularly if I think I am going to read the boo more than once or if I plan to give it to someone else e.g. my family. Also there is the fact that my paper books will survive TEOTWAWKI (EMP event) whereas the Kindles will be toast (maybe literally).

  4. JonPatrick: I suppose we should all get two Kindles and keep one in a Faraday cage with a solar panel charger against the day when it happens! You can load the one in storage with survival manuals and spiritual reading and classics.
