7 Fun Puzzles And Games For Your Kindle Device

Updated on June 12, 2011

Kindle makes reading so easy and convenient! With a well implemented e-ink technology and ergonomically friendly interface, this is one of the best Reading Devices yet. An entire library with thousands of books can be carried around in your bag with a total weight of 10 to 19 ounces. How great is that? While the Kindle device is not at all perfect, it is quite impressive.

At times you may not necessarily want to read anything, yet still wanting to do something on your Kindle. It's just like skimming through a newspaper, and resting on the Puzzles and Games section, where you have a variety of options with the likes of: Find-A-Word, Scrabble, Crossword Puzzles and the list goes on. There is something about these puzzles and games that gives someone a quiet type of fun. In the same way, you can play a number of these games on your Kindle. Although the Kindle is not designed with the platform for high graphics games, it is efficient enough to support the ones that a Reader would divert attention to.  This is a list of very inexpensive and highly rated games.

  1. Sudoku Volume 1: Interactive Sudoku Puzzles by MobileReference ~ Sharpen your mind by filling in the numbers 1 through to 9 throughout the 9 x 9 grid. Keep a tab on your progress, your wrong moves and see the solutions as well. Set your player level, and play on.
