This is my irrefutable argument for getting a Kindle:
A kindle provides easy transportation of an entertainment device. It is slim and weighs approx 7.8oz, which is much skinnier than our laptops. Furthermore, battery life is 2 months, which far outlasts either of our laptops. As you know, in the zombie apocalypse, it will be necessary to have entertainment in order to withstand the screams of the zombie hoard outside. My Kindle will provide hours upon hours of entertainment, and will save us precious space. We will not have to carry around tons of heavy books - we will have an entire library in 7.8oz! You can also purchase games for the Kindle Touch, and although it is in black and white, we will nevertheless have the opportunity to keep Ricky and Adam occupied while we are traveling. The Kindle also has audiobooks - and you love audiobooks! You will be able to plug headphones into the kindle and drown out the cries of the hungry hoard while we are huddled inside our safe house. In a pinch, I will be able to use the Kindle as a distraction device by loading up an audiobook and tossing it into a pack of ravenous Zed, allowing us a quick getaway in the other direction. I would miss my Kindle, but if I have to sacrifice it to save our family, I will do so.
Obviously, you can see why the Kindle is a necessary piece of equipment for us to purchase. We must continue to prepare for the end of the world and I think that having things to occupy our brain is just as important as having guns to blow out zombie brains. We can have all this and more for $149.00. I think this is an exceptionally low price considering all the benefits the Kindle provides. Obviously, we have the means at the current time to save up the funds in order to purchase this life-saving device.
Thank you for your consideration of my proposal. I look forward to your response.
I think she's a keeper...and getting a Kindle
