I finally broke down and got a Kindle.
I'm loving the free game apps and reading library books for free, along with Gutenburg books which is a site with free downloadable books after their copyrights run out.
I wanted to make my own cover (99 cents vs $40+) : )
I used a sheet of plastic canvas, some toy stuffing I already had and a polar fleece remnant from when I made Gizzy a bed.
I figured out the general length I would need for a cover then cut out double the length. This allowed me to have a thicker cover and made an easy place for me to put the canvas and stuffing.
