Advantages: Great battery life, looks fab, easy to use
Oh my goodness, I absolutely love my Kindle!
As an avid reader and huge fan of books (I had over two hundred books...!) I knew I needed to buy/do something to get them all in one place. I was nervous about this as I am not very good with technology. However, the Amazon Kindle is the easiest thing in the world to use!
I bought the Kindle in August, and true to word, you can read the text in bright sunlight. At night, I bought a cheap clip on light to clip onto the Kindle as it is not self illuminating. The text is crystal clear and quite black and bold for ease of reading.
The battery life is absolutely fabulous. I use the Kindle most days and do quite a lot of 'book shopping' using the online bookstore, and still only need to charge it on average once a week.
Some people may not like the fact that it isn't touch screen, but I really like that you can use a keyboard; it's much easier and the keys are very responsive.
The Kindle downloads booms super fast and the prices are pretty reasonable; not much cheaper then if you buy a paperback online, but there is a big selection of free books too.
The Kindle looks great too. It is very quiet so doesn't disturb anyone or make any annoying noises!
Highly recommended product for avid book fans!
Summary: An excellent invention!
