So I’ve had my Kindle for a good while now (read about a month), and I love it a lot more than I was expecting. I read all the reviews, did my research and went for the standard model after getting a bit jealous that people I knew owned them and I wanted one!
I read a lot, and it’s really helped me get back into reading a lot more! My sister has one, and she keeps it in her bag like I do and just brings it out for a minute while waiting, or on the bus. It’s great for a really quick read, rather than fussing with a big book and trying to find your place, and it’s light so it isn’t adding a lot of extra weight for my just-in-casies sore back.
I’m filling mine up with lots of classics which I downloaded free from the Amazon Kindle site, and I’ve managed to put on some of the articles I need to read for my dissertation so I can read those on the move too!
If you read a lot, then a Kindle is good for helping you out on buses and holidays and the like. I’d totally take this on holiday because it means I don’t have to take hundreds of books! I haven’t had any of the technical buggy issues that lots of people seem to have had, so my opinion might just change but for the moment, my Kindle is awesome. I’m calling her Frances.
