Reading books, blog posts, and any text has come a long way over the years.
Firstly, we tried to read on those old big glaring computer screens , but soon discovered that it caused the eyes to water, ache and turn zombie-red after a short while.
Luckily, we’ve come a long way with solving the digital reading experiences of the past.
Kindle readers are now pretty much a standard item for many avid bookworms, and “on the way to work” readers who just can’t do without a good book to read during those quiet moments.
I’ve had a Kindle Digital reader since about 2011. It took me no more than a few minutes to realise the advantages of owning one, I could stick it into my inside pocket, or in my bag and always have a book to read.
At first, it makes you aware of the amount of times that you end up with ten or twenty minutes spare time on your hands, just because somebody else changed their plans – a great time to have a good book at hand and a Kindle reader in your pocket ready to dive into a world of fantasy, or thriller. I always carry a Kindle with me because of all the books that have downloaded over the years.
I love reading non-fiction, fiction thrillers, modern literature and basically any novel that seems to me worth a try.
Good writing is a pleasure and the best companion in silent times when I’m alone. I get the Kindle out and open up a book to regenerate my thoughts on any particular subject that’s been bugging me.
Being a writer is like wanting to know what’s going on out their in the world. Books get you some of the way, you get an insight into another person’s world of thought – that’s what a book is, somebody sharing their feelings and thoughts on an idea with you.
I still own the Kindle Fire which I bought in 2011, it’s going strong and seems like it’ll be around for a while longer.
Sure, it’s a digital product, a Kindle made of components and plastic casing, not too heavy but robust enough to withstand all types of mishaps that it has been through. Nothing broken after dropping it, or leaving it lying around in the kitchen full of steam.
When you decide that a Kindle Digital eBook Reader could be worth trying out, don’t worry that it’ll take you away from paper books, it’ll save space, that’s for sure, but some books are made to be paper.
If you want a large book that has color plates in it, or a text book for study that has illustrations in it, I’d go with the book – yet, I’m always tempted to buy the eBook because it’s always cheaper, by far.
I have a house full of books, If I could see physically how many eBooks I have on my Kindle Reader, I’d fall off my chair – there’d be no space.
One last point, reading late at night has become a lot of fun with a Kindle eBook Reader, the lights out, a book, and all alone in bed and the dark make it a especially powerful way to read a book.
