10 Reasons to Buy a Kindle

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 one of Amazon's best selling items? According to Amazon by the year 2010 became "the most-wished-for, most gifted, and has the most 5-star reviews of any product on Amazon."

And the Kindle Paperwhite shown below is still the most popular of the Kindles.

I must tell you that I am a Sherlockian. I love Sherlock Holmes. I have the complete Arthur Conan Doyle collection of 56 short mysteries and 4 novels based on his Holmes character -- in my Kindle!

Talk a look at this Kindle cover. Sherlock Holmes! This protects my Kindle while reminding me of my favorite fictional character.
