The Revolution in Reading

I have to say that when Amazon first announced their new Kindle reading device a few years ago, I was a bit skeptical. After all, who wants to replace the beauty of fresh pages from a book with an electronic device? The more I read about this device, the more I was convinced it had some great qualities. The only thing that kept me from purchasing it was the fact that they didn't offer the kind of books I was reading.
All of that has changed.

A month ago I bought the Kindle: The Latest Generation. And I love it! Not only does this device hold all my books in one place that I can access at any time, but it also saves me gas money since I no longer have to drive to the book store (or in my case, several book stores). Instead, I can buy the book from my Kindle, and in three seconds it's ready for me to read. The books on the Kindle are also cheaper than paperbacks and hardbacks. The great thing about the Kindle is that every week they offer 100 free books for a limited time. You can purchase whichever ones you like. Plus, you can sample a few chapters of any book you're interested in buying.

If your eye sight is poor, you can adjust the font. It even reads to you (and allows you to select male or female voices, and adjust the speed). It stays charged for up to thirty days. If you use the Wi-fi, then it stays charged for up to 3 weeks.

My favorite part about the Kindle is that I can download PDF files to the device right from my computer via the nifty USB port that comes with it.

If you're an avid reader, now is the time to purchase this amazing device while the price is low. The money you save in the long run will pay for the Kindle in a matter of months. If you're not an avid reader, and you only read books once or twice a year, than I wouldn't recommend this device, as you're not likely to save much money.

What can I say? I think I've fallen in love with my Kindle.
