The Perks of Owning a Kindle Reader


More and more book lovers continue to embrace the versatility of e-readers.

Among these devices, Kindle sis the standout favorite. Kindle lovers are increasing in number from all walks of life. It’s not just young, tech-savvy readers with a passion for gadgets that love Kindle but also the older generation who are hardcore paper-book fans too.

What is it about the Kindle that attracts so many to it, then?



Convenience, Convenience, Convenience!

If you ask any Kindle owner what they prize most about their Kindle, convenience is pretty sure to top that list.

Anyone who likes to travel and read should invest in a Kindle. It’s the ideal travel buddy. Kindle is much lighter than the average book so holding and reading it is a cakewalk even on a crowded train. Not only is it featherlight, you’ll have access to your whole library on the go. No more agonizing about which books to take away on vacation.

Since the device remembers exactly where you left off, kiss goodbye to carrying a bookmark or dog-earing pages. Beyond that, you don’t need to worry about tearing, staining damaging your book.

For an experience that always sees convenience uppermost, invest in Kindle and you won’t be disappointed.

Your Library Remains Safe From Harm

If you own a Kindle, you can rest easy knowing your library is safe at all times…

No amount of rain, fire, thunder and lightning or any other natural disaster can destroy your books because they are tucked away safely on the Cloud.

E-books are immune to annoying friends who borrow and never return your books, too.

The best part is that you don’t have to pay anything extra for this sort of insurance. All you need to remember is your password.

Cheaper than Printed Books

With a Kindle, buying books has never been cheaper. They are so inexpensive that there’s no call to think twice or save up. Just click through and buy!

You can read sample chapters just like you’d pick a book off the shelf in the store and leaf through it. This is great if reviews alone are not enough to help you make up your mind.

You don’t need to think about this as an either or situation…

You can keep on adding to your physical library while expanding your horizons digitally at the same time.

While you’ll need to make a small initial investment in an e-reader, you can recoup this money in no time if you’re an avid reader.

Exclusive – X-Ray for Books

The Kindle X-Ray is an outstanding feature for getting even more out of your books.

X-Ray debuted with Kindle Touch in 2011 and was rolled out on models since then to great fanfare.

You can get the gist of all important themes of the book you’re reading. X-Ray will give you background information about the events, places, and characters helping you see to “the bones of the book”. This is particularly useful if you’re reading a big book with multiple plot-lines and a treasure trove of characters such as Harry Potter Series or Lord of the Rings. You will no longer need to backtrack or become confused thanks to X-Ray.

This feature also adds a new dimension to studying. Your school and college assignments just got easier thanks to Kindle! Not only is search simplified but X-Ray serves up even more information to help you.

Adjustable Reading Modes

With Kindle, you can adjust the font to a size of your preference. While this feature is basic, it’s undeniably useful. You might want a bigger font while lying down in bed, for instance.

You can also read in either landscape or portrait mode. Being able to flit between the two is a nice touch.

Often, we are so taken by all the new features of a gadget that we fail to see the core basic things that make the gadget functional. The sheer flexibility of how you read is one simple feature that makes the Kindle user-friendly across all ages and is often overlooked.

  1. For someone who purports to be such an avid reader, your sentence construction, language use and phrasing are appalling. Indeed, you come across not as someone well-read, but as someone who probably works for Amazon and is tooting their trumpet.

    Unfortunately, reading your post killed dead my newly-formed interest in acquiring a Kindle.

    • Kay, loosen your girdle and have some fun. This wasn’t an English homework assignment. There is more than one style of writing. Enjoy your tomes
