I recently had the opportunity of borrowing my parents Amazon Kindle and giving it a go. For those of you who don’t know, the Amazon Kindle is an E-book reader and I am already a huge fan. The interface is really easy to use and with almost no instruction I was immediately immersed in reading. Unlike normal books, the Kindle offers so many more features that simply make reading a book more enjoyable. For example, if I don’t know the definition of a word, I can simply use the cursor to scroll to it and it will instantly give me a definition. Also, I can electronically highlight quotes, and leave notes in sections of the book. I can then view all of my notes and highlights in the “Notes and Highlights” section of the Kindle. It makes reading a book easy, and marking your favorite passages even easier. Then, if I would like to share some of those quotes with my friends, in just a few clicks, I can post a quote from a book that I am reading directly to my Facebook. No Wifi? No problem. With FREE worldwide 3G access, I have yet to go to a place where I can’t download a book, or post my highlights. One last feature that makes the Kindle truly awesome is the fact that it doesn’t tire out your eyes like a computer screen does. It uses E-ink (which is a really fancy way of saying that the kindle screen mimics an actual page). The only disadvantage I have run into is the fact that you can’t really let anyone borrow a book you have read on the Kindle without them borrowing the Kindle itself. But other than that, the Kindle is an amazing reading tool!
P.S. This is my first super-awesome post. As to what that means, I have no idea. But there was a little check box to the left of this that said “This post is super-awesome” so I checked it. Therefore, this post is officially my first super-awesome post.
