Advantages: Practical, great value, look great
Disadvantages: May kill the book
I have always been sceptical about ereaders. I love to read books. And the thought of books not being around does scare me, so I will always purchase a book if I can. Having said that, the kindle is a great addition to the reading world.
The kindle is a decent size screen to read from and is just as portable as a book. If not better to carry than a book. If you are planning a holidays and do not want your bag full of heavy books, than this is the piece of kit for you. You can take it on The plane and have more space in your bags!
The good thing about the screen is that you can read it in direct sunlight and not have any glare, so reading whilst tanning is brilliant! Haha. Also they look great and you can carry multiple books around with you. I like taking my kindle on the train to work. I feel it is better than a book on a train because if you are only on the train for a short time you can turn it on instantly read a page or two and turn it off, with a book you have to find the page and mark it when your done! A lot of hassle when your In a rush. The kindle is very practical.
They can resist a lot of damage! I have dropped mine a few times now, but it still works!
Its great when connecting to the wifi. Also downloading books is simple and easy for anyone. Books are reasonabbly priced. I still feel that buying a book is better value when you get it in a hard copy. But you pay for th practicality.
Kindles are not very expensive which pleased me. I paid £89 which I though was good compared to these other gadgets on the market which are in excess of £200. I would not buy another other ereaders. The kindle is the best in the market, I shopped around and looked at others, but this one was the most recommended.
So I would recommend this to any book lovers who would like a new experience! They are really good and I am glad to have one!
Oh and 1 other thing, the battery life is incredible. You can use it for weeks without having to worry about charging it. I think that it is brilliant that they have managed to do this and that is why buying a kindle is better than using your iPad to read books, battery life is short on other devices compared to the kindle. Excellent technology!!
Cheers for reading :)
Summary: Excellent! Great piece of kit
