I am thinking seriously about purchase an Amazon Kindle It seems to me that the prices have come down to something affordable at around $139.00 and I have come to realize that these are the wave of the future for reading, not to mention the convenience of having a huge assortment of books available at your fingertips. What a great thing for the cottage, especially a rainy day or those long evenings in the Fall.
So what is a Kindle? Well essentially it’s an electronic book, that fits in the palm of your hand and gives you access to an amazing number of books that you can read right on the kindle. You can purchase and download the books all from the Kindle, and be reading in a matter of minutes, if not seconds.
There are all kinds of reasons why purchasing a Kindle Reader makes sense, here are my top 10 reasons:
1) Fast free wireless delivery, you can start reading books in less than 60 seconds. No computer required.
2) Choose from Over 950,000 books, including 107 of 111 New York Times Best Sellers, plus audiobooks, periodicals and blogs. For non-U.S. customers, content availability varies. Check your country.
3) Free, Out-of-Copyright Books:Over 1.8 million free, out-of-copyright, pre-1923 books are available such as Pride and Prejudice.
4) Low Book Prices: Over 610,000 books are $9.99 or less, including 79 current New York Times Best Sellers.
5) Free Book Samples: Download and read first chapters for free before you decide to buy.
6) Audible Audiobooks: Over 50,000 audiobooks from Audible.com – read by authors, celebrities, and world-class narrators – with wireless delivery via Wi-Fi.
7) Read Everywhere with Whispersync:Your Kindle books can be read on your Kindle, iPhone, iPad, PC, Mac, Android device, and BlackBerry. Our Whispersync technology syncs your place across devices, so you can pick up where you left off.
8) Worry-Free Archive: Books you purchase from the Kindle Store are automatically backed up online in your Kindle library on Amazon. Re-download books wirelessly for free, anytime.
9)Read-to-Me: With Text-to-Speech, Kindle can read English-language content out loud to you.
10) Read in Bright Sunlight:Unlike LCD screens, Kindle’s screen reads like real paper, with no glare. Read as easily in bright sunlight as in your living room.
The above list is far from complete, there are many other great features, such as; lightweight, lighter than a paperback book, thinner than a magazine, room for 3500 books, (try putting that many paperback books in your suitcase), a battery life of up to one month if you read an hour a day, free 3G Wireless, no annual contracts, no monthly fees, download books anytime, anywhere. And, Kindle is ready to use right out of the box – no setup, no software to install, no computer required. As I said, the list of features is long, you can see all the features here!
