Superb! Absolutely delighted.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kindle Touch, Wi-Fi, 6" E Ink Touch Screen Display (Electronics)I wasn't immediately keen on the idea of the Amazon Kindle as I thought I would lose some of the enjoyment of the reading experience - I suppose I thought it would be like reading from a standard computer screen. That was until I had a look at my mum's Kindle and from the moment I started reading I knew I had to have one!
I ordered the Touch, as for £20 more you get a more slimline product, and I am delighted with it.
It is light, attractive and comfortable to hold;
The screen is responsive, but not excessively so;
It is nicer to read than paper. I activated the 'refresh e-ink after every page turn' feature to avoid the ghost writing that people have warned of and have not found it to be a problem whatsoever;
It is simple to shop for books using the Touch screen, and downloads take less than a minute to appear on your Kindle;
It has superb features such as the 'x-ray' which, if the book you're reading is enabled, allows you to 'dig deeper' into the story. Such a good feature! I also love the automatic bookmark, the option to highlight text and save quotes in a 'cuttings' file;
When you touch a word with which you are unfamiliar or do not understand the meaning of, the Oxford definition comes up. This has enhanced my reading experience immeasurably;
The screensavers are very nice and enhance the product and my enjoyment of it - they have an artsy feel, which I love;
The thing I love most is this: when you're lying down and reading it is so comfortable. I used to like the idea of relaxing with a good book, but trying to read the words which had been printed too close to the binding, folding back pages and then losing my place, bulkiness, heaviness... all these things and more used to make reading difficult. The Kindle has actually enabled me to love reading again, and I really can relax with a good book now (or 3000 - which is what it holds) while lying down or even in bright sunlight.
I love it, and could probably go on and on about how good I think it is.
I would love to own a Kindle Touch cover by Amazon but they are too expensive, which is a shame, as that would be the 'icing on the cake'. I will have to buy a generic one from eBay instead!
I would wholeheartedly recommend this product - I will never go back to ordinary books after reading from a Kindle. In fact I sold most of them!
5 big, flashing, bold, bright and beautiful stars from me :-DD
