My newest toy - The Kindle


Sorry for the glare.

Ok first off the Kindle comes in a very ugly gray color.
Skins like the one I added to my Kindle can be purchased for differing prices.
I also added a screen protector to keep it from getting scratched up.

My number one reason that I like this better than the Nook is that it has a keypad.
For me the Kindle is a great ebook reader and I don't know what I did without mine.
The price is reasonable if you are into classics - most of which you can get for free.

If you are into best sellers or the latest books it might start to get pricey. The good news is many books are available for free somewhere and there are many cheap disks filled with 75-200 books for few dollars.
These disks then can easily be turned into ebooks. 
Not all features translate, no chapter forwarding or last page bookmarking and no text to speech enabled.

However when you can get 9 of Gene Stratton-Porter books for free, whereas in a book store you would be looking at 100+ dollars, its a great deal.

Once you buy a book make sure to back it up onto your computer in case anything goes wrong this way you won't have to repurchase.

Usability - Great
Battery - Amazing!
Storage - HUGE
Weight - Medium paperback book
Purse size (my purse anyway)
Great for right and left hand users

Again I am writing this review based solely on my personal experiences and uses. 
I have not been paid or compensated in anyway for this review.

I bought Jake a Kindle for Christmas, & we bought one for his mother. They both LOVE it. Jake plans on just buying one of those heavy duty leather cases but, he got lazy. lol.
The battery on there is AMAZING. I asked him 4 days after he had opened it, "Hey, how much battery has gone since you've had it?" He replied, "Well, it's still where it was when I first opened it." So I'm amazed at how well that has been lasting. I also found out you can put a password on it so others don't have the ability to go in it, steal it, & buy books for themselves. :)
Glad you like yours! & I like the cover.
