5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle reading..., 18 Mar 2011

I've had the kindle for almost five months now and I do love it because I get to do a lot more reading, its compact, easy to store and carry anywhere. Plus it does not give me eye strain after read for long periods and I can start reading a book that I've have brought online instantly rather than having to wait for it to be delivered. This for me is a good thing as I to tend to read a lot of trilogies or sagas of late.

Another plus point is that when travelling on holiday I did not need worry about packing my reading material as the kindle snugly fits into my hand bag and I had loads to read.

But don't get me wrong I do like books and have bookcases crammed full of them as I adore the look, smell and feel of them. But my home does not have the space for me to have an extensive library, and I do get sentimentally attached so no parting with the books even after reading it. So it's a bonus that the kindle can store up to 3,500 books; ahh my own personal library that would take up zero space in my home. Even so, I would still buy books (i.e. cookbooks) occasionally but nothing like before for I now have the kindle.

Still I do have some gripes; firstly the price of the ebooks in my experience tend to be dearer then paperbacks. This I find strange as I thought no usage of paper, saving energy and the planet would be rewarded but it seems not. The second gripe is no page numbers which I would have preferred to be given as an option on the kindle.

None of these gripes are major as the benefits for me outweigh them considerably.

I noticed recently that the kindle is not just sold by Amazon but at a Tesco Extra in London. I wonder where else it's being sold?
