10 reasons to buy a Kindle now

If you thought that an e-book reading device is not for you, think again. Amazon's Kindle has three generations of user experience, development and improvement. Today's Kindle is worth a look.

What makes the Kindle so remarkable?

The idea of reading a book from a screen is very uncomfortable for many people. They like the feel of a real book. They like to turn real pages, look at chapter titles, enjoy color illustrations.

So then, why has The Kindle Reading Device become Amazon's best selling item for two years running? According to Amazon it is "the most-wished for, most gifted, and has the most 5-star reviews of any product on Amazon."

  1. E-books are the future. With e-book reader technology rapidly improving, and more books, magazines, newspapers and other print material becoming available for reading on Kindle – the market for Kindle and e-books keeps growing.
  2. Great for Travel. You can carry your whole library with you. Read as you wait in airports, hotel rooms, and as you sit by the pool or the beach. Get the latest news from your newspaper. Find and download books and periodicals in less than 60 seconds from anywhere in the world that has 3G wireless coverage
  3. Convenience and cost. Once you purchase Kindle, there are no annual contracts and no monthly fees. E-books cost less than new books, and you can download the books you want, when you want them. There are now over 1.8 million FREE out-of-copyright books available for reading on Kindle. All your books remain in your personal library always available wherever you have your Kindle.
