Thousands of Kindle customers have sent us feedback emails about Kindle, and in the spirit of Mother’s Day here are some examples from moms who love their Kindle:

  • “I spent months agonizing over whether or not to get the Kindle. As a mother of three, spending [money] on oneself is a rarity. Finally, I got one. I am not a “techno” person and was afraid it would be complicated, a hassle or problem prone. I have had mine since December and I love it! The free Whispernet, the amazing selection and the screen clarity are just wonderful. Thank you for this invention!” -Judith
  • “I just got the Kindle for my birthday and so far I LOVE it. I find it super easy to use, and I am very impressed. I asked for the Kindle because I thought maybe if I could find something easy to fit in my purse, I could read whenever I had a few minutes. With 3 kids under the age of 9, I have to spend my time very wisely. This has proved to be VERY convenient and takes up way less space in my purse (This way I have more room for diapers and wipes!).” -Lisa
  • “I LOVE IT!! When I first heard about the Kindle I thought I wouldn’t ever want one because I love books and enjoy collecting them… My grown kids gave it to me for Christmas and I heard my daughter say to a friend the other day, ‘Every time I call Mom now on the phone she says she has to get off the phone because she’s reading her Kindle‘!” -Darlene

Kindle and Kindle DX are available for immediate Free Two-Day Shipping today for ($259) $189 and $489 respectively at Amazon’s Kindle Store. To take advantage of this offer, customers can simply add Kindle or Kindle DX to their Shopping Cart and select Two-Day Shipping.
