So my wife is a big-time reader, like 2-3 novels a week when she is on a roll, like when she is in her reading zone, I could tell her we just won the lottery and she wouldn’t bat an eye.
So, I thought a great Christmas gift for her would be an Amazon Kindle. Well I decided to check out the current price earlier this week – $359 – not bad, I seem to remember it selling for $399 a few months ago. Then I see it:
Availability: Usually ships within 11-13 weeks
Ugh. That won’t work.
Apparently they are now experiencing heavy demand. Well I blame none other than Oprah Winfrey. A month or two ago, she featured the Kindle and had Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos on to talk about it. There is no doubt in my mind that Oprah has ruined Christmas for my wife.
