Advantages: light, slim, easy to use
Disadvantages: screen weakness
Initially I was sceptical about the need for an book reader, but after receiving one for my birthday, I had to give it a go!
The kindle is ridiculously easy to set up and was connected to my home wifi within minutes of coming out of the box. After this, I went straight to the amazon kindle shop to start downloading books! This is also an amazingly easy and straight forward process, especially if you have to one-click payment set up.
Find a book you like and select it buy it, then voila, ten seconds later, it appears on the kindle ready to read! The device also syncs well with your other Android devices such as phone, PC or tablet meaning you can pick a book up where ever you left off on any device.
I particularly like the ease of reading with the kindle, the e-ink is very realistic and I find it hurts my eyes less than even a normal book. I am able to read before bed with the kindle in one had and a cup of tea in the other, a perfect combination!
I have also found that amazon customer service is incredible, when my first kindle screen broke, it was replaced within days at no cost to me and with no quibbles, even though I suspect my heavy handiness may have had something to do with the fault!
The weight of the device is no more than a paperback and it is so slim you can slip it in your bag very easily. I would however recommend a case as there is a likelihood screen damage if it is left unprotected.
I would not be without my kindle now and can't imagine ever going back to 'normal' books!
Summary: a great invention and the future for reading.
