I had a first generation, smaller Kindle Fire and enjoyed it. Then, I bought the bigger 8.9 inch screen and found I actually don’t enjoy reading on the bigger screen as much as I thought I would. My kids enjoy it for playing games, so it receives a lot of use. But, anyone have experience with either size iPad and have any recommendations?
I started with a first-gen Kindle Fire, but then got a full-size iPad for its size and greater capabilities. I don't have sausage fingers, but I found I had to use a stylus with the Fire. I don't have that problem with the iPad. I haven't tried the iPad Mini, but it seems like it would be a great travel companion ... IF it's finger-friendly. I have the Kindle and iBooks apps on the iPad, but prefer a Kindle Touch for extended/portable reading.

Here's what the Boston Brats are seeing next month: shorts, cartoons, and Chapter 2 of the current serial.

A beautiful name for a beautiful little girl!

Thanks for sharing that website. Those meetings sound like they would be so much fun! Wish there were meetings around me...I would be there in a heartbeat!

The website isn't fancy, but it gets the word out, anyway.

There aren't any Sons of the Desert tents in Oklahoma ... maybe you should start one!

The Boston Brats have shown mostly 16mm throughout the years, but now they have a video projector as well for things that aren't available on film. If you ever get to the Boston area, try to get there during the first Monday of the month (except January, February, July, and September). The shows are in a church right next to the Waban stop on the Green Line (of the MBTA), so you could get there without a car.

In the summer, up to @ 80%, average of @ 70%.

It is usually the worst during summer months. But we are farther up north, so it may be better here.

Hoping!!
