Why you should get a Kindle

My Kindle turned three years old this week, yay!

When people ask about my Kindle (and sometimes, even when they don't), I always say that holding it in my hands for the first time was a huge "Where have you been all my life?" moment for me. I'm not kidding — when I'm old and …
