Customer Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't even miss that new book smell!, 13 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kindle, 6" E Ink Display, Wi-Fi, Graphite (Electronics)
I'm not sure after all this time that there is anything I can add to the Kindle reviews - but I have to say it has been, for me at least, one of those products where you wonder how you got by without one previously! I put off purchasing one for ages - you don't get the feel of a book, there's no book store shopping experience, there's no book smell, could I use it in the bath?!

Well no, of course you don't get the feel of a book - you get something that is a heck of a lot easier to carry round with you, and is easier to actually use as daft as that may sound! Turning pages is simple and reading only requires one hand (perfect for juggling your lunch with at work). As for the shopping experience of getting a new book - of course there is always the option of trawling around Waterstones first then ordering the kindle version when you get home, but there is endless choice and instant availability online anyway, as well as daily deals on the amazon site - which actually turn up a few gems every now and then! As for reading in the bath - well I've risked it a few times and it's been fine - at least you don't get crinkled corners with a kindle (although it does end up more expensive if you drop it...)

I'm looking forward to going on holiday just so I can be smug about having so much choice of reading material with me, and still being well under the luggage weight limit!

A must for anybody who enjoys reading.
