I’ve been test driving the Kindle Paperwhite for the past week. The device was sent to me by an Amazon representative for review on my geek dad blog. I love it. I really do. The Paperwhite is now my favorite gadget for reading. My previous favorite e-reader was the Nook Color. It’s a nice device, but it’s more of a mini-tablet than a e-reader because it’s a little too heavy and big for holding when you’re doing a lot of reading in one sitting. In comparison, the Kindle Paperwhite is light and I can easily hold it with one hand. In addition, I can easily flip the page back and forth just by tapping the page with my thumb instead of having to swipe.
No Starch Press sent me three LEGO books for review on my geek dad blog. The titles of the books are:
- The LEGO Adventure Book, Vol. 1: Cars, Castles, Dinosaurs & More!
- The Unofficial LEGO Builder’s Guide
- The Unofficial LEGO Technic Builder’s Guide
My son and I think the LEGO books are awesome. In my opinion, the books are excellent holiday gifts for the LEGO geeks in your family.
