I have resisted eReaders for some time. For me, I just read on my other devices. However, the new Kindle Paperwhite is really a lovely device for avid readers I think. It is much lighter than a tablet and it really has a very nice visual appeal to it for reading. While I personally am not ready to switch, I know lots of folks who read a lot who would love a Kindle Paperwhite. Think ahead for the holidays – and the price (as of 10/7/13) is just $119 which really puts this in a price range that many can afford.
One of the great things about the Kindle is that you can borrow books from your local library – just like regular books, but in the digital format. If that seems a bit complicated for you, don’t worry. Most libraries are happy to walk you through the process of getting things set up and helping patrons use the ebook lending library.
A Kindle is also so much lighter to take with you than a heavy book. Not everything we read is in a big heavy book form, but many things are. Those books get a tad heavy in your bag. If someone travels a lot or is on the go a lot than not having to lug a book around but still having it available to read is a relief.
The Kindle Paperwhite weight 7.3 ounces – light enough to easily hold in just one hand. It also has an 8 week battery life, amazing. Plus, the readability even in sunlight or dark rooms is really lovely.
Again, think of this for a gift for the bookworm on your shopping list. You do not have to be overly “techy” to enjoy using a Kindle either. This is a top pick for me this upcoming holiday season to recommend. Since it is the first gift idea for the holiday I’m recommending, I am giving one away to one lucky reader!
