Did you know that Amazon Prime members can borrow Kindle ebooks for free? I was telling my daughter Amy about this, but I also mentioned that the offer is only good on an Amazon Kindle or Fire. You can't borrow books for free on the iPad even if you have the Kindle app. Talking about this reminded Amy that she had seen the Amazon Fire advertised for $49.99! We looked it up, and she was right! You can now buy a tablet for under $50!
When I saw that price, my jaw dropped! A $50 price tag makes the Fire really attractive for schools to purchase. Furthermore, the deal is even sweeter because if you purchase a bundle of 5 tablets, Amazon will give you a 6th one for free! (Who would have thought that one day tablets would be sold in 6 packs???)
Kids love reading on mobile devices, and it would be amazing to get a whole set of them for the classroom. After Amy and I saw this price, we looked at each other and spoke together. I said, "I want to give one away to a teacher!" at the same time she said, "You should give one away to a teacher!" Great minds think alike, and the message was clear that I needed to do a giveaway!
