5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle, 29 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for my 23 year old daughter as a Christmas gift. Both of us are avid readers, as such, I was unsure of Kindles as we both love the experience of reading; from spending time in a bookshop looking for a book that appeals, the feel of a book, turning pages, etc. However, my daughter has aggressive arthritis, and over the last 3 years has had many operations on her fingers resulting in several joints being fused, this has led to her struggling to hold a book for any length of time, diminishing her pleasure, limiting her choice of book according to weight and how she is feeling at any given time (at the moment she is in plaster - again- from her latest op). The kindle has re-awakenend her enthusiasm for reading, the choice of books - at very reasonable prices - and the free ones! is excellent. She has found it extremely easy to set up, purchase books and read - even with one hand! She likes the fact that it has a built in page saver, offering to take you straight to the last page read, little things like this make it easy and a pleasure to use. She is also enthusing about the battery life. In fact, the only drawback as far as I can see - is that she doesnt put it down!!! I also bought her the cover with light, I would recommend the cover just for security and protection for the screen, the light is surprisingly bright. I would recommend both the Kindle and the cover, particuarly if for some reason holding books is difficult.

5.0 out of 5 stars The menopause, 14 Nov. 2009
This book is fantastic - an easy read, to dip in and out of. Made all the feelings, emotional and physical make sense. Have lent this book (and bought copies for) several of my friends of this funny age, all of them swear by it, using it to understand what is going on - all have also used it to explain things to their partners and families. Highly recommend this book - looked at several others before deciding on this plain speaking/common sense book - it should come on the National health! Buy it for yourself/friends/wives/girlfriends/daughters etc

Love this, taken me right back to the 80's, saw them life in Newcastle City Hall - those were the days! My two girls, both left school and go clubbing, like it too, recommend this for all
