As you may (or not) know, I have a Kindle Fire. I’m still utterly in love with it. :D I also really enjoy listening to audiobooks while I’m doing other things (knitting mostly, but also when I’m waiting for code to compile, wanting to drown out super noisy cube neighbors, etc.).
Imagine my delight when Amazon introduced Whispersync – you can read a book on your Kindle AND have the Audible version of the book – and now they will stay in sync! So… I could be reading my book, then have to go to work – so I can just start up the Audible app on my phone or Kindle, sync to my book & start listening right where I left off reading! How awesome is that?
The best part is that there are 10 books that you can get right now for free, both the Kindle version AND the Audible version to give it a try! I grabbed The Three Musketeers, myself. All 10 free sets are classic & in the public domain – so truthfully, SHOULD be free anyway… but I also just got both copies of a new book, 14 by Peter Clines, for a pretty nice price too -$7.99 for the Kindle version and then $1.99 for the Audible version. SWEET!
Yes, I actually started up my Temperature Scarf yesterday. :D I couldn’t help it. I went the inexpensive, washable route for this one & got all my colors in soft acrylic yarns. I do love wool, but it isn’t so practical for Florida. I can only wear my beloved Doctor Who scarf so many days of the year – it’s just not cold enough any other time for it! LOL
