A wonderful friend who shall remain nameless has gotten me a most amazing gift. A Kindle. I have wanted one for a while now, but have been wrestling with the idea of buying one. I felt that I didn’t actually need a Kindle except for the fact that it is small and easy to travel with. Otherwise I was fine with reading a book as they were intended – with pages and a wonderful hardcover.
Well, I didn’t know what I was missing. I love how small the Kindle is and that the screen doesn’t bother my eyes at all. I work at a computer all day, and the last thing I want to look at is another screen that has my eyes going crossed. It is so slim, lightweight and carries up to up to 1,500 books. 1,500 books! I also love that fact that it has free book samples. Amazon gives you the first chapter or two free to see if you like the book. I can’t tell you how many times I have come across a book that I thought that I would love only to read a chapter or two and then realize I hated it. The Kindle Store also has more than 400,000 books available, including 101 of 112 New York Times Best Sellers, plus top newspapers, magazines, and blogs.
If you do love books do try the Kindle if you get the chance. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
