I was into e-books before Kindle was a thing, and the ultimate reason for buying my first tablet was for use as an e-book reader. I loved that the Kindle app was free and that I could buy e-books at a fraction of the price I would pay for a paperback.
The thing was, whenever I read on my traditional tablet, either in daylight or in artificial light, I would be met with screen glare/reflection, and I’d often struggle to make out words. I often gave up on trying, making my 1-hour commute on the train something of a drag.
That was until I invested in a Kindle – its light enough to carry anywhere, and I can enjoy clear reading whatever the lighting! I always have a good book on me, for whatever genre takes my fancy or matches my mood.
The Kindle has loads of great features, which make it a lot more than a mere reading app. It shows you recommendations based on what books you’ve purchased previously, which is particularly good if you want to expand your knowledge in a narrow field; or if you’re interested in a particular genre.
With my Kindle Paperwhite I can make minute adjustments to the brightness of the screen, adjust the typeface, and see how long I have left in a chapter. Also, the battery for a Kindle lasts way longer than a traditional tablet.
If you’re considering switching to e-books I don’t blame you! And you could do a lot worse than investing in a Kindle – highly recommended!
