Warming Up to Kindle
By Nancy Ann
A couple of years ago, I was given a Kindle Fire as a gift. I had fun exploring all of the things that it could do, however, I am one of those people that prefer a “real” book when it comes to reading.
As time went on, I found myself downloading more and more books to my Kindle. This became especially true when it came time for me to travel. If I was in the middle of a book, I would download it before heading out of town as opposed to packing the book itself. I now have several reference books on my Kindle, making it very convenient to bring along all of this information.
While it took me a while to warm up to my kindle, I am glad that I did. The largest concern is keeping it charged, which usually isn’t much of an issue. There are many things that you can do without internet access, should you be traveling to a remote area. But mostly, you will find many hotels or motels now offer free Wi-Fi.
I still prefer my printed and bound books when it comes to reading, however, I must admit that when it comes to packing and heading out of town, the Kindle rocks!
