Kindle Me

My birthday is coming up and we have never been good at waiting for gifts in our home. So, I am already thoroughly enjoying my Kindle Fire. I have wanted a Nook since my last birthday and Adam and I spent a lot of time deciding if it would be the Kindle or the Nook. They are basically the same thing. Amazon Prime was the deciding point for Adam. For me it was the super hard, and likely more kid safe, casing.

It has been just what all the info online said it would be, I like that in an item! The first book we borrowed from our Amazon Prime membership was The Hunger Games. We are addicted to the book, in case you were wondering. We love that you can change the font and size and even color of the screen to make it easier to read. You can change the screen brightness too.

We have been having a blast with apps too. Jayne's favorite is Angry Birds, mine is Townsmen 6 and Mighty Grocery, and Adam likes the Weather Channel and map apps. This is our first time playing with apps. They are fantastic! Plus we get a free paid app every day and have gotten some fun ones that way.

I would definitely recommend a Kindle. It has 8 hours of battery which we have used up every day since it came in the mail on Wednesday. It has a crisp clear touch screen. The size is small compared to a pad, but that means it fits in my purse. While Adam wasn't sure about getting it in the first place, we all like it and are happy we got one.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
