Although the Amazon Kindle costs $359, Oprah looks at it as an environmentally friendly investment. “I know it’s expensive in these times, but it’s not frivolous because it will pay for itself,” she says. “The books are much cheaper, and you’re saving paper.” All books are $9.99 or less.
Great observation. Not only will the Kindle save you money in the long run, but it will save the environment. What more could you ask for?
I know – you could ask for a discount. So for the next seven days, you can purchase one for a $50 discount if you type in the code: OPRAHWINFREY
Although some people have poked fun at Jeff Bezos having bribed Oprah, my friends who are devote Oprah fans assured me that she is above all forms of bribery and gets thousands of free gifts, solicitations, and wannabe bribes every day, so why would she take Bezos’ bribe and not others? Then the devote Oprah fans scorned me for having testicles and plopped in front of the TV to watch more Oprah.
Jeff Bezos is even appeared on Oprah to talk about the Kindle and “Oprah was so effusive that Bezos, sitting next to her, barely got a word in edgewise.” Which might be a good thing, because Bezos might have gotten so excited about the Kindle that he would have jumped into Oprah’s couch. Heh.
