So you are sitting there wondering why a Kindle banner at the top of my blog. Because Kindle is the poor man's way to free reading material. Knowledge is still power and so your number one request for a birthday or Christmas present should be a Kindle. Free Kindle books are all over the web including at my step mom's site Books on the Knob where she finds the free books as they come out so you can always have free reading material. New books are also cheaper on Kindle once you have money to spend again and you never have to carry a spare book around with you as your next book is always on your Kindle. So beg, borrow or plead but get yourself a Kindle.
