A Pleasant Surprise,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kindle Keyboard, Wi-Fi, 6" E Ink Display (Electronics)
I bought my Kindle for two reasons: first to stop ever more books being added to my already overstuffed bookshelves;and second to read more recent fiction without for ever visiting bookshops and handing over several pounds. My Kindle does both these things to perfection: but more than that, I have received a third and totally unexpected benefit;access to hundreds of classics that I read in my youth. Now as I travel on bus, train or aircraft my Kindle lets me bathe in the warm glow of nostalgia, adventuring again with my boyhood heroes, or sometimes being given a short, sharp shock as Arnold Bennett tells me 'How to live on 24 hours a day.' Then, when I've read a Kindle book I remove it with the press of a button - no more trudging to the charity shop with shopping bags full of books.
