Thank you Santa!
So how did I do it? While staring longingly at the Kindle on Amazon I noticed they had listed a refurbished one for sale. After a few minutes of humming and hawing I jumped on it. The thing that sealed the deal was the lowered price and that it comes with the same warranty as a brand spankin new one. DONE DEAL! Because I had to have one asap and am a Amazon Prime member I paid $3.99 for the over night shipping. WOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Ok enough chatter I must go and play with my precioooouuuuuussssss.
