I have to say, getting a Kindle was one of the better decisions I have made in a while. Since receiving this great Birthday gift, I have read almost ten books, some more than a thousand pages in length. Living in rural Newfoundland, we do not have access to a decent book store, unless you consider Walmart a decent book store. I for one, do not.
The Kindle has opened my eyes to as many books as I can imagine, and I plan on taking full advantage of the new opportunities this little device can provide. I recently downloaded the entire Repairman Jack series of books, and I find myself lost between the pages (pixels) of this unlikely hero and his adventures. I have also re-read A Thousand Splendid Suns, a book that I found absolutely amazing to read the first time, albeit on a torn copy of the book I picked up at a garage sale.
I am already planning on reading Stephen King’s newest, 11-22-63, which tells the story of a man who goes back in time in an attempt to prevent the assassination of John F Kennedy. Should be an interesting read. I have that one downloaded, just waiting to be read.
The Kindle allows me to carry my entire library with me where ever I go, and with all those old hardcover books gone from the shelves, I have even more space to store my goodies. The Kindle is a win win for me. I have also recommended the device to my friends, and some of them are purchasing ereaders for Christmas gifts.
