Amazon Has Made Me Kindle Crazy!

I have a guilty pleasure. I admit it and I need help. I need to belong to Kindle Anonymous. I have a Kindle obsession and I love to read!

What’s wrong with having a Kindle obsession and how can you tell if someone you know is suffering from it? Baggy eyes and a lack of sleep is your first clue!

I am totally into reading books that are part of a series. Unfortunately, that makes the obsession worse because you can never get enough of your favorite authors and you always want to see what your characters are going to do next. I love suspense and crime thrillers. Throw in a good serial killer and I’m hooked! Love me some Patrica Cornwell and her Kay Scarpetta series!

Need a Kindle? Amazon really has some great deals on the no-frills Kindle and the Kindle Paperwhite. Amazon also now has the Kindle Voyage as well.  Need something a little more robust that can replace any other tablets you have? You need a Kindle Fire tablet.

Don’t want to wait for your Kindle or Fire to arrive before diving into these reads? Check out the Kindle Reading App.

Amazon also recently rolled out a new service called Kindle Unlimited that gives Kindle users access to 800,000 e-books and thousands of audio books.

Charge up the Kindle. These will take a while. It looks like a long night!

  1. So I’m a Nook girl but I totally understand. When I find a good book…or even better(worse for my sleep and social life), a good series, I’m up until 2 in the morning because I can’t stop until I’ve read it all. I loved the Divergent series, which I didn’t see on your list, but it’s awesome. Does THe Kindle do the library book sharing program. That’s a neat feature of the Nook.

    1. I’ve downloaded books on my Kindle Fire from the St. Louis City library system. I’ve heard the County has a pretty robust system too.

  2. I am a Kindle Unlimited member because it feeds the addiction nicely. When I finish one book in the series and it leaves you hanging, you just get the next book and you are off and running within a minute! No library to run to or hours to abide by, it’s always right there. Kindle does have a book sharing library. There are also features for new releases and monthly deals where you can read them first for no cost or a lesser cost. Since Amazon is tracking your buying habits, it send you emails when the next book in a series comes out. Again, just give the addict more crack!
