Then I was given a Kindle as a gift from my techie hubby. I have to say it has been one of my favorite gifts of all time. I will now address the questions I most often get when people find out I have one.
"Is it hard to read?" -- No, it is like reading a book but instead of turning a page you push a button. Oh and should the text be too small for your liking you can make it larger. Also best part about Kindle is that there isn't glare on the screen like on an iPad.
"Don't you miss the feel of a real book in your hands?" No, it is actually lighter and easier to handle than a book, especially if you are reading outside where pages would be flapping in the breeze.
I take it with me everywhere. I always have something to read. A book, a magazine or if I'm being lazy I can play a word game.
I have classics ( many are free), the scriptures, children's novels, Readers Digest and a lot of other books.
I browse books on Amazon and if I think I might be intersted in them I can save them to my wish list to purchase at another time. I have found that the books are fairly priced. I have only had two books that I wanted to buy that were not available on the Kindle. They were both books for my book club that are very old and somewhat obscure.
Because of a very unfortunate event I no longer had my Kindle and have been without one for about Three weeks. Today my new one arrives. Can't wait. I have been missing it. Where are you Mr. UPS? Oh and all my books that I had on my previous kindle are still in my Amazon account and will be reloaded onto my new Kindle. I wonder if it will remember what page I was on in "Someone Knows My Name". Well, if not I guess you can't have it all.
So do any of you have a Kindle or some other eReader. What's the verdict?
