Updated on January 10, 2010

The Amazon Kindle is a hardware device designed by amazon for the public to be able to download books and other digital media to be viewed on this device.The kindle is a very small digital device with a screen for viewing digital media on,it is quick and easy to download books and other digital media and is easy to read with no strain on the eyes as you may get sitting in front of your computer screen for hours at a time.Books and other such media are available to download through amazon at a set price and then are stored to your Kindles hard drive.The new kindle 2.0 has a 2gb hard drive which can hold about 1750 non illustrated ebooks,that is some library and saves you having to lug all your favourite and new books around on holiday or when traveling as they are all stored on one convenient yet small device.personally i am a great lover of reading and find it especially relaxing when on holiday,when i recently went on my honeymoon i took 6-7 books and this took up valuable luggage space,if i had had one of these it would of been a godsend,what a space saver,just download a book in under a minute and read away to your hearts content
