As a long-time lover of books and literature, my home has been moving towards something resembling a library, or perhaps a used book store for quite some time. Everywhere I look, my beloved books cover shelves, desk tops, counters, tables and really any unoccupied surface upon which they can be stacked. Further, what would be a nice spare bedroom is really nothing more than a storage space that has been taken over by boxes and boxes of books, because I simply do not have a place to display them. After years of accumulating books, I absolutely had to do something to lessen the burden of owning so many, and with this in mind, I started looking into the various electronic reading devices available on the market today.
There are many e-reading devices on the market. After conducting some research, I decided to purchase the Amazon Kindle 3G wireless reading device. The Kindle is a slim, lightweight and attractive electronic reader which features an exceptionally long battery life, and offers Wi-Fi + 3G connectivity. The Kindle has a clear display with crisp fonts and good sharp contrast, making it very easy to read, even in bright sunlight.
The Kindle 3G is the flagship of the Kindle product line, and has many advantages over competing releases by other companies. In particular, it’s slender profile and the fact that it is extremely lightweight makes traveling with the Kindle 3G a breeze. It takes up almost no space in luggage, fits comfortably in most purses or backpacks, and the long-lasting battery life negates the problems associated with previous product releases in regards to frequent recharging.
Best of all, the Kindle 3G wireless reading device allows me to download and store thousands and thousands of books, a feat previously only made possible by filling my home with volume after volume. Today, my reading list is confined to my little Amazon kindle wireless reading device, and I can carry thousands of books and magazines with me everywhere I go in a small and easy-to-use electronic reader.
I should also note that there are a lot of free kindle books available, books that would otherwise, wind up costing me a lot if I had to actually purchase a print copy.
Do you own an e-book reader? If so, which one?
