Advantages: Charges lasts ages, very compact. Huge memory
Disadvantages: None really
Since a very young age I have been an avid reader, particularly of crime books.. A couple of years ago my boyfriend bought me this kindle for Christmas here are my thoughts.
How it looks.
This is one of the older ones and it is a dark grey colour with a rubberised back. There is a small button on the front that can be used to go toward different apps and features and there are buttons on the side to turn the page. I really like this design it is easy to just slip into a bag and there are a number of different covers available. This is about he size of an A5 fiction book but is only a couple of centimetres thick.
The buttons on the side can be quite annoying as if I catch them I can sometimes be transported half a dozen pages forward.
Other than that I have no real issue.
The only other real feature of this is the internet, due to the nature of the kindle and the button that has to be used to navigate, this is virtually impossible to use. As I can quite easily purchase books though I don't see this as a problem.
Something my boyfriend used to really brag about was that they use real ink on these kindles. This makes the books much easier to read and with the matte screen I never have a problem with sunlight. This version does not have a backlight installed but they were almost still playing around with it at this stage so again this isn't an issue.
The charge on my kindle will last a couple of months it hardly used, if I am going through a phase with a certain author it will only last a couple of weeks either way do not take the charger away.
Free books and new authors are another reason I love my kindle I have since fallen in love with so many, nd it is a great place if you wish to publish yourself.
Tips on how to keep a kindle
1 Always have a cover in their and keep it a clean as possible you do not want to ruin this.
2 Keep all of your books in different files dependant on genre of author, this will make it much easier to find why you want.
3 Wifi uses the battery much quicker so where possible set the kindle to aeroplane mode.
Price and Availabilty
I can no longer find this model anywhere but there is one very similar available on Amazon for just £69, I think this is definitely worth it. Not only is the the convenience of all your books at once but also the amount you save from buying books on the kindle well makes up for it.
I love my kindle!
