This is my first Kindle ever. Because of that, this review will not attempt to make any comparisons with prior models.
After approximately two days of using the Kindle, I am generally very pleased. As an avid reader, I was one of those purists who feared that the joy of reading traditional books would soon be a thing of the past, as an e-reader-dominated future slowly took over. It’s still too early to make that call, but in my short experience so far, I think e-readers aren’t really as evil as I thought. The surreal realization of being able to take your entire library of books with you wherever you go is reminiscent of the iPod’s introduction as “1,000 songs in your pocket”. I think that benefit alone makes any e-reader a must-have. Best of all, no more paper cuts!
I hope you enjoy my review and feel free to share your experience and thoughts so far with the new Kindle.
