I recently received a package......in it was book lover heaven.
For those who don't know what it is...it's a book reader. You can download books to it, it holds 1500!. The prices vary, some are even free, but most new releases are $9.99. Alot less than the price of a new hardcover. It has wireless in it that you can download your books from anywhere you get a signal, for free, no charge. If you don't get a signal, like me, you can dowload to your computer and then put it on the Kindle.
It keeps track of all the books you have on it, and if you accidentally delete one you can re-dowload from Amazon for no charge. They keep track of all the books you've bought.
It reads just like a book with no glare, even in sunlight. You just turn the page with the push of a button. It also keeps track of what page you are on. Has a dictionary built in, and you can even receive e-mails for a small fee....I haven't figured out all it's bells and whistles yet, but am quite happy with it.
It's also really thin. As you can see a peanut butter m&m is thicker than it is! Amazing what they come up with isn't it? I've been enjoying it so far, I'm reading The Lovely Bones by Alice Seabold.
If like me you spend alot on books this could be a cheaper way to do it in the long run, without using trees for paper, and having to find a place to put or get rid of all the books when done.
