The advantages of a Kindle are many, which is probably why Amazon isn’t sharing just how well this ebook reader is selling.
For those who might be in the market for an ebook reader, it’s hard to do any research online without finding the Kindle at the top of the recommendations. Well, and Amazon’s heavy marketing is probably helping a bit – being a part of one of the largest retailers online has its advantages, after all. Though at first, many people scoffed at the price of this ebook reader, it’s come down a bit (and it’s perfectly reasonable given the price that Apple charges for its cell phones). At the present moment, the Kindle is $259, without any tax or shipping charges. Since the reader can be used again and again for years, this is a reasonable investment for the avid book reader who wants to bring dozens of books wherever they go.
Large Library of Books
The large library of books available through Amazon is also a helpful benefit of the Kindle. Since Amazon has a good relationship with so many publishers, they were able to talk many authors into producing Kindle-friendly books for their library. While not every book is available on Kindle, those that are cost less than the paper version of the book and can be ordered through the Kindle or through the Amazon website.
Easy to Use
Even the most computer illiterate (hi Mom!) person can use the Kindle. By simply following the prompts on the screen and through the Amazon website, you can be downloading books and reading them in a manner of minutes. You can upload any book you need (assuming it’s available) when you need it and store many hundreds of books at a time.
The wireless delivery available on the Kindle also helps those who don’t want to plug into their computer each time they want to upload a new book. You will have the book delivered right to the Kindle over an ebook hardware network that’s already in place to help you get your book fast.
The Kindle makes reading easy and fun, and without the racy romance novel covers, you can enjoy those Harlequins without anyone knowing any better.
