My Review: I was using the Kindle PC app on my computer for the longest time, but it was hurting my eyes and was annoying to be stuck on my computer trying to read all the free kindle books I had received. So my husband let me buy a Kindle. I was going to get a Kindle touch like what my friend has, but while shopping I saw the Kindle fire and an app on there where books can be read to your child and apps that help teach your children to read for them selves. I was bought. That's why I bought my kindle fire. Was for those awesome teaching apps. I love the educational games, puzzles, books and apps I have on my Fire, I love being able to carry it around to church for my kids to use, or in the car when I'm running errands all day with 2 bored kids in the back seat. I love doing school time on the kindle with my kids, and playing games with my husband late at night too.
I bought my kindle from Best Buy, and received what they call the Black Tie guarantee. I bought 3 years of the Black Tie, where any time in those 3 years that my kindle messes up, gets busted I take it in and get a free brand new kindle fire. When I bought the kindle the sales guy said I would need a screen protector because this Kindle screen gets scratched very easily. So I had them put the screen protector on. It had to dry for 48 hours.
I went to Wal-Mart to find a good Kindle case. I wanted something that would protect my kindle on the sides and back as my kids would be using this, not just me. I found a great cover by M-Edge. It zips closed and keeps the kindle snug inside without worry of falling out. Plus its my favorite color: turquoise. The cases that the sales person from Best Buy recommended were cases that allowed your kindle to stand up, and only protected the outside, but it was open on the sides so lint and such could get stuck to the side of your Kindle Fire.
Pros: I love the fast connectivity, the large storage, tons of educational, fun, religious apps
