So this year for my birthday/christmas gift, my mom got me an Amazon Kindle. Now I must say that it has not changed how I read books. I mean there are still special things like hidden short stories at the end of a book edition that I have to get. But I will tell you that wow, it’s really awesome and easy to read.
As promised, the kindle reads exactly like a book, and it even auto advances the pages for you. (although the timing in this still needs some work.) Even if it didn’t advance the pages automatically for you, it’s still so very easy to flip to the next page. No more fumbling with the pages anymore. This also means you don’t have to actually hold the kindle too! No more worrying about how to hold down the pages while you eat. (which I do a lot)
The kindle is awesome. But what you have to watch out for is the price of books. Some books are priced very well, but newer books can be priced as high as a cheap hardcover. So you really need to watch out. It’s so very easy to rack up the dollars when buying books! With one touch, you can just buy a book, just like that. Luckily, if you did make a mistake, you can unbuy a book as well, but be warned, as far as I know, you can only do this right after the purchase of a book.
If you’ve been in the market for a Kindle, I’d say go ahead and save up your money for one. But if you’re a cheap reader and don’t like to buy books in hardcover, don’t bother, since you might be paying more for a book in the end.
P.S. The title this time is from a book that’s within the story of another book. I just thought it was appropriate.
