My New Kindle Case

Hey y'all!!

I hope you've been having a good week! I got some happy mail today, and I wanted to share it with you. 

I recently purchased a Kindle Touch. I debated for a long time about whether I should get a Kindle or not. I've always loved to read, but I just wasn't sure if I would actually use it or not. Plus, I was being cheap. LOL! 

Well, when I started having to get weekly allergy shots and had to sit in the doctor's office for an hour each week, I decided to go ahead and get a Kindle to occupy my time there. I don't know why I put off getting one for so long because I LOVE it!! 

Because I carry it around in my purse, I purchased a cover for it so it wouldn't get scratched up. I ordered my cover from this Etsy shop - The Sweet Life by Design. It is ADORABLE and well-made! The hardest part in ordering was deciding which of the cute fabrics I wanted. I found a couple of shops that sold similar covers, but they didn't have the button closure. I really wanted one that would close, so that's what sold me on this one. I love the ruffles, too! 

A friend recommended this site - Inspired Reads - to me for free inspirational books. I check it everyday and download a few books that I think might interest me. I also found this site - eBook Flings - where you can loan and borrow books. I've already used it a few times. 

Do you have a Kindle? If so, are there any other good sites you can recommend? If you don't have one and you love to read, I really recommend getting one! 

Have a great weekend! 


  1. That is super cute Candace! I just recently ordered a Kindle case from Etsy too! LOVE your new blog look! GORGEOUS!

  2. Thanks for sharing your Kindle cover finds (and the book download links,too). I'm thinking I might be able to replicate yours from the photo...sewing fabric instead of paper for a change! Have a good weekend.

    1. Yes, it looks very simple to do! I am sewing illiterate, except on paper! I'm sure you could do it! It's an easy design.

  3. Came to check out Kim's blog it!! Love my kindle too...going to have to check out Etsy for covers...yours is adorable!!! Have always loved "books in hand" but, love my kindle's wonderful when you finish a book and can just order a new one!


Thank you for taking the time to leave some love! Have a GREAT day! :)
