Before you dismiss the kindle in favour of a traditional paperback though I'd ask you to consider the benefits of the kindle.
The kindle itself is lightweight and thinner than a pencil, making it perfect for those who find they cannot hold a hardback book or even a paperback novel.
It is a godsend for students with those thick heavy course books, because you can download those right onto the kindle making them extremely portable.
And you can read for hours and the battery life is up to one month per charge!
It is easy to navigate the pages using either hand. Unlike traditional books, the kindles font can be enlarged making it a fantastic tool for those who's eyesight cannot manage the standard text in a novel.
You don't need to remember your page or have a traditional bookmark to insert into a page only to have it fall out on you and you fumble around forever trying to recall where you were last. The kindle automatically saves where you were reading, even if you decide to read more than one book at a time, it will remember every one and when you go back to it with the easy to use menu, it will bring you effortlessly back to the page where you left off.
You can make notes on it and it holds up to 1,400 books! That is a lot of library!!
You can also borrow books from the amazon library, there are many FREE BOOKS to be had and kindle format books tend to be cheaper too.
There are a lot of benefits from owning a kindle.
