Kindle post

I'm on a short break from school (finally!), so now I can't believe it, I can actually choose what I read!


Hi everybody, meet my Kindle reading device! With all the talk going out and about with the iPad 2, I must say I am tempted to get one for reading my architectural reference books and HD apps, but I'm still an original Kindle girl. It's strictly for black and white text reading only. I love reading from it because it really looks like a printed page.

I received this Kindle for Christmas from my parents, and from my godfather I got its Kate Spade cover. I love my case! It's made of patent leather with canvas inside. It's plain but pretty and makes a statement every time I pull my Kindle out. :)

This is my favorite screensaver. One amazing thing about the Kindle is that its battery can last up to 30 days! Also, anywhere I go that has 3G, I can surf for free! But of course it's black and white and navigation is not so good. It works though, and is very handy especially when you need to Google something quickly for reference.

The back has speakers, in which you can use the text-to-speech function that it offers for most books downloaded from Amazon. It's pretty cool if you ask me, but audiobooks don't work for me because they put me to sleep. Haha! I chose the white over graphite because it looks more clean-cut and futuristic. :)

If you ask me, the Kindle is a great buy if you love reading novels and printed books! Imagine not worrying about messing up the cover or spines of your books, tearing or folding any pages and lugging around heavy hardbound books? Up to 4 GB worth of books can be stored in your device, and one book is just 125 KB, more or less! But don't expect much out of this device if you want to use it to surf or play games. It's really just for reading. But it's really amazing, how it looks like a printed page. The eyes don't strain at all :)


And I leave you with this photo. Spot the odd one out? :P

  1. I really want one but getting one would put me in distress!

    1. My love for reading while turning pages, (not to mention how the printed pages smell like!) would be put to an end.

    2. BUT REALLY. Being a Lit major can be an actualy work out just because of how much books & readings we have to bring and read everyday. So a Kindle would definitely be a smart idea. Less hassle.

    ...also planning to get an iPad2 :( IM TORN SAIRA.

  2. Get one first then get the other! My parents already agreed to half with me for the iPad 2 :D And yes, I would definitely recommend a Kindle to you. I actually really miss looking for the page where I left off , like leafing through the pages but that's an opportunity cost! Mahaha economics
