I am certainly tickled so pink,
(or purple, I should say, don't you think?)
Nancy Drew my theme;
my Kindles do seem
to have many "clothes"; my budget they sink!

(My Kindle Fire is dressed in shades of purple, and I thought it was so cool to find a Nancy Drew cover that would match!)

My Kindle is clad in leather, black
from the front to the back
Not to sound crass
but my Kindle is "badass"
It devours ebooks like a snack

If you are a reader who's wary
Of publishers' prices that vary,
When the prices are high
And you don't want to buy,
Try the Kindle Lending Library!

Reading your Kindles again,I see.
I guess that leaves it up to me.
So I'll bump the thread this time,
I really don't mind
Can't wait to so who's poem next will be.

I've got no excuse this time.
No reason to avoid play and rhyme.
Thanks, K.M. Carroll.
Our thread was in peril.
Must write whilst sipping my gin and lime!

A challenge has been detected
On this very thread I read it
To make poems anew
where before there were few
Two Kindlers already accepted

A story about Barnes & Noble
Entertains us as it goes global.
When they edit in haste,
With all "kindles" replaced,
They produce an e-book Chernobyl!

J. Seidel says:
By ebooks, I'm certainly hooked.
Thru volumes, I've read and I've looked.
Now cut and paste
Turns classics to waste.
I'd say those readers have been nooked.

That's just about the funniest Nook story I've ever read!

In "War and Peace" the war was rekindled.
The Nook people didn't want customers swindled.
They replaced all words
that to another e-reader referred.
Due to their error, their customers may dwindle!

Oh,Fiddle dee dee, what a day
This head cold just won't go away
Coughin' and sneezin'
It just isn't pleasin'
Hope it doesn't plan a long stay.

BeeCee, I regret I've lost your name.
We're not playing a Words with Friends game.
Last one, I regret,
To rematch, I forget.
Can you start a new one? I take all blame!

Kat says:
Guess no one wants to make rhymes
No new ones for a very ling time.
So Our Kindling thread may
Just quietly slip away.
And wouldn't that just be a crime?

J. Seidel says:
I hate it when life interferes
With things that I hold so dear.
So little time
To make a good rhyme.
Perhaps I should stop drinking beer.

After work had a little wine and cheese
My kindle fire was calling to me...."please"
I read on the pulse app
Almost took a nap
But the air conditioner was making me freeze.

although my ebooks tempt me
i'm in a rut creatively
a limerick I can't seem to form
which is out of the norm
i'll think of something hopefully

BeeCee says:
flipoid, I'm wishing you well,
Though I KNOW you'll do swell!
When taking that test,
You'll give of your best!
Of high marks, you'll be able to tell!!!!

flipoid says:
The nasty test I now have finished.
Youthful brilliance now seems diminished.
The English I aced;
math left me shamefaced.
School acceptances--will they be thinnish?

J. Seidel says:
"Harumph, poo poo," I say to the test!
Don't they see, you are the best?
Limericks each day
Should pave your way
To schools all over the east and the west!

flipoid says:
I wonder, could I do my thesis
on limericks--the Kindle species?
I'd have lots of fun,
and fame could be won
for Kindlers who here type their precis.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 22, 2012 8:45:33 PM PDT
obviously, they tested the wrong skill
books of knowledge you could fill
if you could test again
they would see they were mistaken
on this thread your limericks kill

While not strictly on topic, I feel that I must qoute Sir W. S. Gilbert's response to Edward Lear's creation of the Limerick.

"There was an old man of St. Bees
Who was stung on the arm by a wasp.
When asked, "Does it hurt?"
He replied, "No it doesn't.
I'm SO glad it wasn't a hornet!""

Poor old W.S. Gilbert.
When a lady, swimming, got hurt.
Jumped into the lake.
No care did he take.
Ending his life, quite curt.

(Poor old W.S. Gilbert is rolling over in his grave right now....)

flipoid says:
Thanks, S, for the vote of confidence.
It's worth much more than just a mere pence.
Limericks aren't math;
should I take a number bath?
Perhaps with osmosis those figures I'd fence!

Posted on Jun 29, 2012 7:36:51 PM PDT
flipoid says:
It's been almost a week--no new rhymes.
Fellow Kindlers just don't have the time?
We're all so busy;
lives in a tizzy.
More time to read and rhyme would be sublime!

One day outside at the table
With my kindle keyboard I was able
The words to see.
It was a breeze.
And with long battery life I didn't need a cable.
