Into the Kindle wilderness

Life has been a bit hectic since I last posted so long ago.
We are slowly building towards our more self sufficient life.  Sheep, goats, and chickens are supplying us with meat, eggs, and in time milk from the goats.
The vegetable garden has suffered from poor fencing and inquisitive goats, and that is an ongoing battle.

We savoured our small amount of medlar liqueur I made last year, and I vowed to make more this year.  I did but unfortunately the birds yet again beat me to the majority of the fruit!

In other news I am 24 weeks pregnant.  I wasn't shouting this from the rooftop as we lost a baby last year, and it was an anxious few months to get to this point.  All going well with this pregnancy, and I am looking forward to finishing paid work in a few months, and having a baby in the house again.

I have finally bought a Kindle after thinking about it for ages.  I picked one up secondhand for NZ$80 including a cover and  not regretting it a bit.  As I am loathe to pay for anything I don't have to I am on the lookout for free ebooks wherever I can find them.
Ebook Daily emails you a selection of books based on subjects you have said you are interested in.  You can also earn points to redeem for Amazon vouchers.  I like the sound of that!
Simple Savings has a vast range of information on saving money, but also has a Free Kindle Books thread.  Definitely worth a look.
You can also search the Amazon website using terms such as Free Kindle books, 0.00, free, or save books to your wishlist and check that regularly to see if they are reduced in price.

I am definitely a convert to ereaders, and the best thing is I can have the app on the computer for Miss 5 and don't have to have all her books on my Kindle device.

Must get on with the day as heading to town today for groceries.
