Project Matt's Simple Review: Kindle Touch

The Kindle Touch with a Timbuk2 Case

Well built, slim & attractive hardware
Vast eBook Library (Many for Free)
Simple & clean user interface 
1 free book per month with Amazon Prime Membership (5,000+ titles that include titles like The Hunger Games)

The Back

Interface and page turns seem slightly slower than the Nook Touch
(This seems to have been fixed in this software update)
Kindle books can't be moved (easily) to non Kindle eBook readers.

Should you get it?  

Yes, though I have to say you would be happy with either the Nook Simple Touch or The Kindle Touch . I choose The Kindle Touch because I love the look and feel of The Kindle Touch when compared to the Nook Touch. I love Amazon's services and as a Prime Member, the one book per month can't be beat. So while I feel both are fairly equal eReaders, the hardware and Amazon service made me choose The Kindle Touch.

The Kindle Touch is on Amazon starting at only $99

If you would like additional details on my experience using the Kindle Touch, please feel free to ask me in the comment section.

Cure EM (Erythromelalgia)

So as I mentioned in a previous post, my wife (Tracey) has Erythromelagia (EM for short). I am going to try and sum up this condition and how it has affected our lives in as short of a blurb as I can. Here it goes...

Picture from my wife's blog- i'm (not) superhuman
This condition began to show up around May of 2010 when my wife's feet would randomly swell, turn red, get hot to the touch and become extremely painful. She describes it as being lit on fire. It is actually considered one of the most painful conditions out there. It is also very rare, which is why we brought the diagnosis to our primary care doctor. And for us it was just one more problem on a long list of things that had happened to Tracey's health over the past few years.

At first the flares were fairly infrequent, and she mostly noticed them when it was pretty warm out or when she had been walking for a while. Over the past 10 months, EM has taken control of every part of our lives. Tracey now has to work…

This is healthy...No this is...

For years I've been trying to eat healthy with self admitted terrible success... And this post is not to blame anyone, because honestly I have no one to blame but myself for my mostly poor eating habits.

What this is about, is the frustration of eating "healthy"... At my most recent count I believe there is approximately twelve million different diets or ideas on how to "eat healthy"... about 3 times as many as there are actual food items in existence! For every food item it seems there is at least one diet, book or person saying it is good, and at least one saying it is not good...Or at least this is how it feels sometimes.

So my question is this, how do you choose what is actually good, how do you move past the confusion? I have read so many different books and theories, all of which sound so great while reading them, until you read the next one that is either a slight variation (at best) or the complete opposite of what you just read... and of course is just…

Panera Bread: Açaí Berry Iced Tea

Why I got it:

Had some time to kill and it looked refreshing. It is a regular fountain drink on the menu as well so it has free refills.

Cost: $1.79

Quick Thoughts:

It was inexpensive and refreshing with just the perfect hint of berry. I prefer mine unsweetened but you can add sugar if you would like.

Would I Get This Again:



The combination of cost and refreshment was perfect. I love good iced tea. There regular black tea is also very good but this was the first time I've seen this flavor here.

Where have you found good Iced tea?
