Turning for Profit is Celebrating
I’m close to 300 fans on Facebook and my best friend at Joybilee Farm just made it to 5K fans on Facebook, too. To celebrate we planned a blog draw. In considering what would be suitable for all of our fans, I thought that the newest Kindle would be an excellent choice. Having your own Kindle will let you grab the free Kindle books, being listed every day by Joybilee Farm. While you are waiting to see if you win this awesome prize, download the free Kindle app from Amazon and start your own Kindle library by checking out the daily Joybilee Farm posts. And be sure to share the daily post with your friends on Facebook to increase your chance to win this great prize.
So Why did we decide on to buy one of our fans a Kindle?
We decided on the Kindle Paperwhite because frankly, I think its the brightest, and easiest to read Kindle that Amazon has come up with. In taking your hobby to the next level you need resources that will improve the business / computer side of your hobby. too. There are many free resources for the kindle that are just what you need to organize your business, set up your Facebook page or help you create a presence on the internet. This Kindle is easy to read and still has the great portability to keep you engaged even when you can’t get to your lathe.
The new Kindle Paperwhite has a bright white screen with dark print, giving the strongest print contrast of any Kindle. It has a special light that allows you to read easily in bright sunlight, and in the dark, no reading light required. It will hold up to 1,100 Kindle books. Plus it has a built in wifi so that you can download books on the go. Do you want one yet?
