With this past weekend being the Thanksgiving holiday, our entire family got together… of course, we ate tons of food, we visited with each other as many of us hadn’t seen each other in months, and we played games, watched television, and much more.
But, the biggest ‘hit” of the weekend was, without a doubt, my Kindle Fire. While I’m not the first in the family to get a tablet computer, I was the first to get the Fire, and literally everyone wanted to see it, and try it out.

My father, who loves to read and plays music, enjoyed the piano player app, and tried out the reading part of the Kindle Fire.
My nephew and his fiance, who are college students, tried out the display and reader to see if they could save money on their college textbooks… (they could)
My brother in law, who is an IT guy and has both a Kindle and an iPad, tried it out to see how well it compared, pricewise and feature wise. It held up to his expectations!
My nieces, one 11 and one 17, both tried out the games (bejeweled was a favorite), and the streaming music and video…now, of course, both of them have added it to their list for Santa. Even Santa himself liked the Kindle Fire when he arrived
Overall, the Kindle Fire was a huge hit over the holiday… the only downside… I never got to use it! Someone else ALWAYS had my Kindle Fire. I predict that there will be a lot of Kindle Fire tablets under our family Christmas tree this year…
