My New Kindle—The Unboxing

So, today was a pretty exciting day. Today I bought myself a brand spankin' new Kindle! Well, actually, my parents bought it for me. Best belated Easter present ever. Just sayin'.

Anyway, so far I'm totally loving it. It's lightweight, has a nice crisp screen, and the e-ink display is, quite simply, awesome. When I first started researching e-readers, I found the unboxing articles, photos, and reviews to be extremely helpful. And as such, now that I've made my purchase, I wanted to share my unboxing with you guys. After I use my Kindle for a few days, I'll be writing up a review.

So, here we go.

The box. This here is the Kindle box. But I'm sure I didn't need to tell you that. Inside is where the goodies are kept!
Voila! The outer sleeve is off. I'm getting pretty excited at this point. Like a kid at Christmas morning, opening a most anticipated new toy.
This was genuinely just as easy as it says.
My new Kindle! Sittin' pretty and waiting to be held for the very first time.
Hello, Kindle! We'll be fast friends!
Hiding underneath the Kindle itself is the Quick Start Guide.
All the basics of what you need to know are tucked away in there!
Last but not least, under the Kindle and the Quick Start Guide, the power cord!
The box and all its contents.
Set up instructions. Straightforward and simple.
The legit Amazon power cord.
First-time start up!
Congratulations? Why, thank you!
Officially registered and belonging to me! Excitement ensues.
So, there you have it! My brand new Kindle, unboxed and in my hot little hands. I hope you enjoyed joining me in unwrapping it. I know I had fun sharing it with you guys.

Stay tuned for a more in-depth review of the Kindle itself, and my experience using it!

Until then, happy reading! :)

So jealous! I've been on the fence but I've been slowly creeping over to the e-reader side of the fence for awhile. My birthday is coming up. I need to start dropping hints among the family. Hope you two are very happy together.

Rachel-Endless Reading

I LOVE MY KINDLE! Matter of fact it's sitting right next to me so that after i'm done blogging/commenting I'll be loading her up to read. It's def one of the best e-readers (if not THE best e-reader)

Sarah said...

@Reading Rachel—Me too! It took me awhile to decide which e-reader I wanted to get. It took me even longer to admit that I was ready to take the plunge and get into this whole e-book thing. Good luck with hint dropping! :)

@Loredana—Very nice! Mine is right next to me, too! Mark Twain, in screen saver form, is silently begging me to shut my laptop and start reading! ;)

Anne got a Kindle for Christmas and she LOVES her's, too. Enjoy!

I'm not an Amazon fan after they gave me a run around on some music, but I do love,love,love my NOOK. E readers are the best! My hubby gave me mine 4 my birthday after I pointed out that it would stop me from buying hundreds of dollars in real books that he would some day have to pack and move lol!

It's so beautiful.... =D I have been wanting to get my hands on a Kindle for a long time, but just never had the funds. I can't wait to hear your review, maybe it'll push me over the edge and I'll simply have to buy one!

Do you have the app for your phone, too? It's amazing when you can't bring the Kindle with you sometimes. Have fun!

Sarah said...

@Kathy—Will do! It is awesome. :)

@Tonja—That's a bummer about Amazon giving you the run around! I don't blame you for not being a huge fan. I have several friends who simply love their Nooks! :)

@Sydneylk—I totally understand! I'm going to start writing up my review soon! I'm absolutely loving this Kindle.

@Auto Title Loans—I do! I love the app. SO handy!

I'm also planning for one. It would be more convenient to bring than those piece of papers. Good that you liked it.

I just received a nookColor for my 21st Birthday and have been loving it! Being a B&N member has made it so convenient and easy to use. Plus, I love all the accessories! I can't wait to go nuts on etsy with personalized little gadgets and things. Happy Reading!
