There are plenty of classics on Gutenberg etc free to download, and plenty of free books on Amazon too. I started using a kindle for buying the cheap stuff you'd get in a supermarket paperback and still buy "proper" books in hardcopy for sharing.
But the thing I love most is a bath with the kindle in a waterproof cover, streaming music to a speaker on the bathroom windowsill. Ho yes..
I fell in love with mine the first time I travelled with it - a whole "rough guide" and a fortnight if novels in my handbag!!
Also love the one handed reading in bed.
Unfortunately I haven't time to browse second hand bookshops so don't miss out on that. I'm also in a couple of online book groups so appreciate being able to order the books instantly rather than wait an age for an inter-library loan or shop to order the title.
I use a Kindle app for my tablet. I love it so much, it's ridiculous. I love being able to haul umpteen books with me wherever I go. It did take a bit of time to get used to, since I also read really fast. But once I got the hang of it, well, I haven't bought a physical book since.
I gave mine away. I refuse to buy anything from Amazon. Buying from second hand bookshops and borrowing from libraries will help to keep these facilities alive, rather than feeding an overseas business which doesn't add any value to our own economy.
I have been given one. All ready to go. But, I can't learn to like it. I don"t like the way sometimes, there us only one paragraph.on a page. I'm a super fast reader and I realise I am always a bit ahead. I like flicking through to see where the chapter ends. And the cost. I use libraries and second hand bookshops. Kindle books cost more. What can I do? I want to like it.
