Fantastic!! a great book everyone have to read; a journey through all that aspects of our life we usually neither pay attention nor are aware of and we must do in order to achieve a more pleasant life. I strongly recommend to make comments (for kindle or other e-book readers) and underline of every important key aspect you will find through this book and review them from time to time (even after having finished it) in order to make the most of this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars ¡Excelente historia!, 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Una historia de ciencia ficción fascinante, realmente me atrapó, la temática es super interesante. Al autor mis más sinceras felicitaciones, por cierto... el final me dejó con dudas sobre varias cosas, pienso que el autor debería, no sé, escribir una segunda parte de este libro para aclarar, principalmente lo del impresionante hallazgo al final de la novela así como una conclusión definitiva sobre las teorías del protagonista sobre el origen de la civilización de Izaro.

P.D: Califico con 5 estrellas por lo excelente de la historia, sin embargo invito al autor a hacer una revisión del libro y una actualización del mismo porque encontré algunos errores de imprenta. Por lo demás, insisto... muy buena historia y recomiendo el libro

4.0 out of 5 stars Good watch!, 12 April 2014

It's a nice and good watch, although I expected it a little bigger.

P.D: It's possible to change its strap, which is something very good; it's worthy to buy it even if you don't like the colour of the strap, it looks fantastic with a brown leather strap! ;-)

5.0 out of 5 stars ¡Lo recomiendo 100%!, 12 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Este libro es la base para mejorar nuestra relación con los demás con 4 simples acuerdos: Se impecable con tus palabras, no te tomes nada personal, no hagas suposiciones y haz lo mejor que puedas. Con estos acuerdos se empieza a ver la vida desde una óptica diferente; para mi fue de mucha ayuda.

P.D: Recomiendo hacer las anotaciones necesarias y repasarlas para aprovechar mejor la información contenida en esta obra

5.0 out of 5 stars Una historia bonita y entretenida. ¡La recomiendo!, 12 April 2014
Me pareció un historia fascinante que nos da lecciones sobre el amor verdadero, la fuerza de voluntad y un lección que, en lo personal, entendí muy bien y me quedará grabada de acá en adelante: "Una persona no vale más que su palabra". Muy bonita historia y divertida que símplemente me atrapó y dejó un mensaje aleccionador

5.0 out of 5 stars Great device, despite of some tiny details, 29 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I must say I'm in love with this device and this second generation is great. I'd like to mention some aspects I liked and some I think it must be considered an improved.

I like: This device is fantastic, reading books with it is the best, some people love an prefer physical books because of the smell of the paper and more romantic details, but definitely all the things you can do whilst you're reading and the obvious advantages you have with this kindle device, make worthy to put aside "the delightful smell of the sheets of a book" in my humble opinion. The 2012 version of the Kindle PW it's already a fantastic device, my first experience was having this device an I felt sad when It was robbed to me on holidays last year so I took advantage in order to buy this updated version which have great improvements; kindle free time seems to me an interesting feature in spite of I didn't test it yet because I don't have children yet; the vocabulary builder is a great tool to learn new words. My previous kindle sometimes underwent wifi loss signal but this new device seems to connect faster to wifi internet and the signal is more stable.

Things I think must be taken into account: It's great you can have the possibility to look up a word in the dictionary whilst you're reading, the first generation kindle has also the ability to switch between dictionaries during the reading no matter the default dictionary one can have set, feature very useful for people like me who are still learning English (I'm Spanish speaker) and for those who just want to read in a foreign language in order to learn it as well, however this second generation kindle can't switch between dictionaries during a reading although with the release of the first update for this 2nd generation kindle I felt pleased to notice they fixed this detail, in the same way the inconvenience of reading PDF files got better a little although other improvements should be considered with this last aspect. The possibility to check the email thanks to access to internet is a very useful feature, however it seems to me terrible that access to hotmail is impossible, I have my main email address there. I think a very good improvement it can be done is give to the kindle the possibility of look up the meaning and/or translation of a word in the dictionary during a reading of an internet article, that would be very helpful. As a last comment, I decided to get the only wifi version because here in Venezuela, where I'm come from, 3G connection doesn't work at all so I think this extra price for this 3G version is not worthy for people from my country and maybe other countries where this problem may occur (I know that because my previous kindle was wifi + 3G).

Finishing this review, I'm definitely in love with this kindle, is the best for reading and thanks to it, I'm recovering my reading habits an for this, I'll rate this device with 5 stars although I would like Amazon consider the observations I made about this device anyway. A final comment, independent of the kindle, I would like to do with the conditions for buying books for kindle should be considered, I say this for the inconvenience for buying kindle books on Amazon.es/com/fr etc; This doesn't seem to me fair, why can I buy anything from any amazon website, even the kindle device, and not the kindle books? why I should to resign to buy a book I want because this one is present only in another amazon website? I think this matter should be taken into account.

4.0 out of 5 stars Conversion from PDF to AZW, 13 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This device seems to me fantastic in spite of fact is not possible to look up the meaning of a word when you're reading something on the internet, however, there is a thing that I couldn't sort out; I tried by many ways I found on the internet, to convert some PDF documents I have to AZW or doc format since PDF documents are read by the kindle with a very tiny letter and there is no possibility to increase it like the kindle documents; as I said, I tried almost everything, sending the document to my kindle email address with the subject "convert", converting the document online, I even downloaded the conversion program called "Calibre", and I tried Mobipocket but I haven't found the way to convert the PDF document with no messing its appearance up (the .doc, .azw, .mobi, etc version looks lousy). Please... anyone can tell me if there is any way to convert PDF documents to kindle format without destroying the look of the converted version?? I would really appreciate any help on this.

Thanks!!
