I love my Kindle handheld ebook reader. The books are very inexpensive and I don't have to store real books on a shelf! The large print has saved my reading life...that alone makes the device worth it's weight in gold!
HOW MUCH HAVE I USED MY KINDLE
Well here is the list that is on my reader today and how I rate them:
- The Girl Who Played with Fire (reading now)
- The Girl with Dragon Tattoo ****
- Romeo, Romeo (terrible book but free)
- Tinkers ***
- Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet: A Novel ****
- Eat, Pray Love *
- The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Club ***
- Sarah's Keys (NYT Best Seller) ***
What did I pay for these books? Well I paid around $8...sometimes a lot less. The next book I read will be Cutting for Stone. This book was recommended by a friend. It is marketed on the Amazon website for $7.99. When I order the book, it will be delivered within seconds of my order via my wireless connection (at home, in airports, Starbucks, etc.).
FYI...WHY A HANDHELD EBOOK READER
Senior citizens quit reading because they cannot see the print or because large print books are very heavy and cumbersome. If they are housebound for any reason, they can simply go to their Kindle wireless and order books from their living room. Handheld ebook readers can be the answer to a prayer for them. In a comparison of ebook readers on the wikipedia website someone has compiled graphs with all the information about the features of each model. When you get ready to purchase one, satisfy yourself that you have picked the right one. Many have features that I just do not want or need...Internet connection or a touch screen just is not something I would ever use. I suppose that is why the Kindle has turned out to be the perfect choice for me.
Have a wonderful day!
PS...dancing tonight and barbecue tomorrow...this retiree is having a good time!
