I went shopping with a friend today. We ate at Pinera's. They have free wifi. I tried to download a book on my Kindle. It wouldn't connect. I can use wifi at the hospital when I'm volunteering and also at home. But I had absolutely no luck at Pinera's. I saw people using their laptops. The server said just connect with internet explorer. Well, that wasn't going to happen with my Fire.
When I shop with somebody, I do what I'm going to do and then I sit in the car and read while they do whatever amount of shopping they want. I'm not in a hurry, I don't mind waiting, I just don't want to shop if I don't need anything because I spend more money if I'm actually in a store.
But I was pretty limited in what I could read today...stuff I had already downloaded and finished or stuff I'd downloaded and didn't want to finish!
When I got home, I downloaded a bunch of stuff so that won't happen again soon. My Kindle DX would have worked better today. It doesn't fit in my purse as well though.
