Advantages: Easy to use. Easily carried. Convenient. Access thousands of books and publications. Worldwide use.
Disadvantages: Battery drains quickly if wireless function kept on.
Say goodbye to lugging a load of books around with you when you go on holiday, and from painful experience having to pay pounds in excess baggage charges, by getting yourself one of these.
It is easy to use, and easy to download books, many of which are free or at greatly reduced prices, (although the bestsellers and popular items tend to be more expensive).
My Kindle fits comfortably into the pocket of my travel waistcoat and weighs next to nothing. Being 3g it will allow you to access and download books papers and magazines in most parts of the world.
The screen is easily readable even in bright sunlight and although it doesn't have a backlight, there are many inexpensive options to clip on which will fulfil this function to allow reading in poor light conditions.
Smaller than the original due to not having a keypad, this is not a disadvantage, since on screen navigation is relatively simple.
One caveat is to make sure that the wireless function is switched off when the machine is switched off or indeed when you are not actually using this function.
Otherwise, I can think of no major negative issues with this product.
Summary: I love books but I wouldn't be without my Kindle.
