Should I buy an Amazon Kindle? 😀
Iris #recommend #e-book
I have a second generation Fire (before the cameras and the HD and all that) and it’s my love. Lots of free books in the amazon store.
I’d say yes, but I may be biased considering I publish on Amazon. 😛 Ebooks are usually cheaper than hardback/paperback if you’re looking for quantity, too.
I have an old original kindle and I love it but I do like to swap between that and actual books
Totally worth it
Love, love, love my Kindle Paperwhite!
Love my kindle paperwhite x
Yes, do it! It’s the best. There are so many awesome books on kindle and it’s so easy to take with you anywhere. I have a Fire. I love it and I even get pretty, colour covers, which is a huge bonus for me, because I love book covers.
I have one but don’t use it. I really should tho. I love the book in my hands feel.
Depends, do you like/want to read digital books? I don’t own a Kindle, and I probably will never read a digital book unless it’s some obscure, out-of-print thing I’m interested in (in which case I would likely obtain a PDF version and print it anyway). Investment in a Kindle could also save a prolific reader money, since ebooks are usually cheaper than physical books. Deliberate carefully, that way you don’t throw away money on something that might turn out to be useless to you.
I use the Kindle app on my iPad and phone now! Would recommend
Love my paperwhite!
Yes! I Love my kindle ?❤
=)) thankssss I can’t wait to see my bae, Kindle paperwhite <3.<3
Yes! I didn’t think I would like one but I love it. I have the original and the Fire. I use the original for reading since the battery lasts way longer, and the Fire for more like a tablet 🙂
I do the same. I actually prefer real books but every so often my library doesn’t carry a book in a series or an out-of-print book and there’s my Kindle coming to the rescue. Another advantage is that I have Prime Reading which makes me eligible to read a wide selection of books for free. And when I travel I no longer have to argue with my husband about the fact that I’m bringing more books than clothes on the trip, I just bring my Kindle with me, lol.
Well, if your eyes are comfortable with digital reading for hours then Yes, you should !
It happens even with E-ink?
Yes, absolutely! Love mine!!!
Got my first one many years ago and never looked back. Still buy books though.
I’m a sucker for older used books. So that’s mainly what I will buy, unless the book is too new to have an older copy that smells better out there lol. Just got a copy of A Tale of Two Cities published in the 1960s last weekend and I love it!
But the Kindles and other ereaders are great for comfortable reading. If you want to lay down, you don’t have the issue of trying to find a position to see and hold a book without straining.
Thats true but it hurts more when you accidently drop it on your face ??
Yes? love mine❤️ Kindle Fire 8
Yes, I’m on my third Kindle. Totally worth it. I do enjoy the occasional “real ” book, too.
Yes! I love the public library overdrive where you can borrow books for two weeks for free. I use mine all the time and of course you can get alot of free or discounted books.
There are so many awesome free books!!! So worth it. I also like having my books too? I do both????? Addicting?
I would just cause it’s easier to carry around in a purse or backpack.
Yes I love my paper white it’s light weight and with vision issues there is no glare, long battery life, change font size!
Yes. I’m a huge lover of “real” paper books, but that doesn’t stop me from buying on my Kindle. I can find some great deals on best-selling novels (generally 1.99-3.99) on my Kindle, you can find some great free books or cheap (99¢-$2) eBooks that are independently published, there are thousands of free classics at the Project Gutenburg website to download to Kindle, I can read in the dark without worrying about a light, I can have a hundred downloaded books in the palm of my hand when I travel, if for some reason your eyes are strained then you can adjust the font size, it’s lightweight (less than a LOT of books), the list goes on and on. I have also found that it helps keep my “real” book collecting in check. I buy about half eBooks and half real, physical paper books now so my shelves aren’t quite as overflowing. And I buy books based on the best deals. If I can get a nice used copy cheaper than I can get it in eBook, then I buy the real paper version.
<3 I so feel you =)))
Yes!! I love mine! I still read actual books, but love my kindle too!! ❤️
I agree with everyone else and I absolutely love my paperwhite
I bought it for traveling overseas so I could continue to get books in English. So amazing. It’s one of my favorite things about living in the future.
I love my fire but still buy the odd book.
Oh, and if your library offers an eBook borrowing program (and SO MANY do now) you’ll literally have thousands of free, well known, best selling novels at your disposal.
I have mine for about 5 years now, started with original kindle now onto Kindle Fire, I still love a real book, so I normally have two books going at once, one in my hands that i can turn pages and the other in my purse on my Fire, so when I’m waiting on the side of a rugby or soccer pitch, training sessions and all that jazz. I don’t know how I lived without it, although I was certain, I’d never get used to one. Be mindful, it did take me about five books to really start enjoying it.
Yes yes and yes
I got a Amazon voyage for Christmas I love it! Great charge smaller than the kindle and far less eye strain than the ipad
Yes and then subscribe to kindle unlimited £7.99/month and all the books you can read, saves me a fortune
Just do it! didn’t think I was going to love it but got for Christmas two years back and I can’t put it down.
I got a Kindle Paperwhite last week and I’m so glad I did 🙂
I have 2 Kindle’s, a Kindle Fire and a Paperwhite. I love the Paperwhite in the summer, I can read outside really nicely. But I read off my tablet with the Kindle app a lot, because I get a lot of ARC’s and PDFs from authors, so it’s actually easier to read those off the tablet.
Think of how many trees you can save by going paperless
So true! 🙂
I may not have the popu vote here lol! But I love my ebooks I use my iPad for that all the time. I love it. a kindle i awesome cause you can get a lot of free books from an amazon prime account.
It totally depends. I personally love paperbacks, but have a kindle as well. The really good books that you are proud of having in your bokshelf I buy as paperbacks, but “others” and especially books I want to read on vacation or on the train etc, I buy as ebooks. I have a kindle paperwhite, it’s amazing, there ar tons of free ebooks and I really have nothing negative to say about it. you just need to know what you want…
I have the nook which I love, the advantage is I can buy books from Amazon in addition to Barnes and noble. And I love the lend me feature.
I have a nook as well.. unfortunately mine shuts off when she feels like it. I might need a replacement sooner then I thought. But I love it.
I had earned a certificate at Staples and they had a “come on sale” with the Fire, and I ended up getting it for $12, I’m not much of an e book reader, but I like the freedom of being able to get somethings I don’t want to pay a lot for, but the authors still get paid.
Yes! I got one for Christmas….always thought I didn’t want one….but I love it!!!
its good for on the go i like to carry several books i feel my kindle helps avoid having to do that
No. I read books on my phone. I don’t want another appliance.
I love my Kindle Fire HD.
The Kindle app for your phone is free . . . and you take your phone with you everywhere. So why buy another appliance.
My Pocketbook app :”>
@Xander I have my kindle synced to my phone, at home I tead my kindle but can pick where I left off on my phone if im out and about.
I want one so bad!
I owned one for a time and I loved it. I only changed over when it no longer worked, and i so wish I had just gotten another kindle
I love my Amazon kindle Paperwhite. Even more than my Kindle Fire. Lighter, perfect for just reading.
I love my paperweight! My kids have a fire and it’s awesome too.
I love my kindle fire
I was a die hard paperback ,hardcover reader but i have to say there is alot of good books on amazon . There are kindle apps as well you can use, if you dont want to buy a Kindle.
I love my PaperWhite! It has over 300 books on it. Many I’ve already read but some just waiting. It’s easy to stick in my purse and take wherever I go. I do love books but I don’t have room to display any more.
Can someone take me a photo of Kindle Paperwhite?
Yes!! You can get tons of free books! Totally worth it! 🙂
Get a RCA tablet from Walmart, under $50. I got one for Christmas, and have been reading Kindle books and posting my reviews.
I use my tablet. The kindle wasn’t bright enough.
I love my Kindle Paper White!
I have both a Nook and Kindle. I love them both. I had the nook first but you can get more variety of books for kindle. So, long answer, Yes.
No jsut download the software to all of your devices.
I have 2 Nooks and I just love them.
I love my kindle paperwhite, for me I love that I can change the font, size and spacing etc to suit me. Also I love instantly being able to download any book I want!
I love my Kindle Fire. It’s the best.
I do love Kindle Unlimited, its totally worth the 10 bucks a month .
They’re very proprietary devices designed to push Amazon products and services. Somethings you should know: You cannot use the GooglePlay store for apps, you have to use the Amazon Store even though Fire is based on Android. There is a workaround to get the GooglePlay store on your Kindle, but it’s an involved process. That being said, I won my Fire 8 HD, I didn’t pay for it. The screen quality and battery life are exceptional. If you’re going to use it as an Amazon device, get one. The price is sensational. If you’re going to use it as a general tablet? I’m not so sure. https://www.howtogeek.com/232726/how-to-install-the-google-play-store-on-your-amazon-fire-tablet/
You could get a Kindle app on your device. Very simple and doesn’t take up too much space.
The Kindle app is free for any device.
Some Amazon services are ONLY available on an Amazon device like a Kindle, Firestick, or Fire TV.
But Kindle books on the Kindle app work perfectly well. I know, because I do it all the time.
I love my Kindle!
I love my kindle it was the best thing I have ever had.
Well mine lost its wifi connection to Frontier and I am having no luck getting it to sign on again!
I have not had any issues with my Kindle i do wish it had adobe flash though. But its a reader and works nice.
I love mine
My problem with Kindle is that they are just cheap computers and really hurt my eyes after trying to finish a 300 + page book. I like to hold a book in my hands, but others just love ’em
I didn’t buy a fire for this same reason. I love my first generation kindle touch
The nook tablet is actually a Samsung galaxy S2, which is a real computer. It just has the nook platform on it, which I like. Different from a kindle.
Well it’s the same screen in essence. It’s like trying to read on a computer screen for too long. That hurts!
I like the paperwhite and my nook glowlight plus. I agree the glare from a tablet can hurt the eyes. I was just speaking to the computer issue.
I love mine!
Have had a Fire for a couple of years now and love it. Only complaint was that it’s hard to read on it outside. Finally bought the Paperwhite last month and LOVE it!!
Bought a Fire got headaches because they are hard on the eyes. Bought a Kindle touch and loved it but wanted to read at night so bought a paper white and love it most. You can also read outside. I notice a lot of people sugesting tablets or the apps for phones or tablets these are fine but if you do a lot of reading they are hard on the Eyes. You can also read outside with the regular e-readers when you can’t with your phone or tablets at least very easily.
The only reason i have a Kindle is because my wife got me one .I was a die hard real book reader and was wondering where all the killer horror novels were. They dont have a horror section at alot of book stores here if at all . Now im hooked but i do agree with the making my eyes sore .
You must have a fire… regular kindles read like a regular book
Yes. However, if you want to also read cookbooks and/or graphic novels, get a fire. I use my surface, cause I have that but the kindles and fires are great deals.
truthfully, if you’re going to use it as an e-reader, it’s not terrible so long as you mostly use Amazon. As a tablet, the Fire 8 HD has an amazing screen, the battery life is very good, and I stream Netflix. If it wasn’t an Amazon tablet, it’d be double the cost. Easily
While I still go to bookstore and buy books, I do love my Kindle Paperwhite
If you already own an iPad you don’t need the additional expense of a Kindle. Just download the Kindle app on your tablet and you’re good to go. If you don’t have a tablet then Kindles are nice. I owned my Kindle for a few years before getting an iPad.
@Valerie‘s right!! 😉
My eyes can’t stand the brightness of a tablet but the standard kindle reads like a book.
I have nooks and a Kindle. Prefer the nooks but I always appreciate amazons 1.99, 2.99, 4.99 books so that’s what I read on my Kindle and apps.
Oh yes!! Get a kindle paperwhite
Yes. I have a 1st generation Kindle and a 7th generation Kindle Paperwhite. I also have an iPad Mini 2.
I absolutely LOVE mine. I have a Fire also.
I use the Kindle app
Yessss! My paperwhite voyager is the best!
The Paperwhite model can do everything you might want — like read at the beach in broad daylight. Easy to adjust the font size and the battery life is excellent.
Paperwhite is the best. I love mine.
Yes, there are a ton of FREE classic books available on the internet… convenient to take along when you don’t know exactly which book to take with you!
