Kindle Fire Ebook Readers

Updated on January 12, 2015

Kindle Fire Hot New Technology

Kindle Fire e-readers are everywhere. My grown daughters have them. Friends and neighbors are getting them. I just didn't understand. What's so great about reading a book on a computer screen I wondered. Until I got to play with one. Oh Kindle Fire, you are hot!

Yes, yes you can read books on a clear wonderful easy to read screen. Done with the page, just tap and there's the next one. And yes, you can read your old favorites or great new books. Yes, you have to pay for some of the books you might want to read but we have been paying at Barnes and Nobles and bookstores for years. Looking for free books and low priced books, or how about books you can borrow like you do from your Public Library, no problem all of that is available too.

Want to go online and check your email, watch a video, look something up on the great world wide web, well your Kindle Fire can do that too. Love magazines in color with great pictures and fun recipes, articles and stories, then you can subscribe to your favorite magazines on your Kindle and have it instantly, yes instantly delivered. And that is just the beginning of this technological wonder.

I love, love my Kindle Fire because yes, as soon as it was in my hands, I had to have one too. This is a photo of me with my own Kindle Fire in my hand, look how small, thin and beautifully clear it is. No wonder I love it so much and I think you might too.

Amazon Kindle Fire Spotlight Sharing My Personal Review

This will probably be the least technical review you will ever find about the Kindle Fire. There are many wonderful and detailed opinions and reviews online especially at Amazon. I will definitely provide you with links directly to those reviews, to information about the Kindle Fire and it's new family generation of Kindle Fires and of course, links to where you can be lucky enough to buy one for yourself or someone you love.

But this review is called I Love My Kindle Fire! I cannot believe the enjoyment in reading again. Easy reading, easy page turning and even easy bookmarking. Did I mention easy, easy set up and management, well I have to tell you just in case you are worried you're not tech savvy enough, don't worry. Books magically appear on your kindle after you purchase them when you next turn it on. So easy to manage your music, store files in the Cloud and even so easy to connect to a WiFi network. Easy, portable, fun and lightweight. Yes, I love my Kindle Fire!

Here's my Kindle Fire on an old book case of mine. I have tons of book cases holding books I love, books I meant to get a chance to read, books I will never read, recipe books, DIY books, lots of books. Taking up lots of room. Tons of paper and trees and room!

My Kindle Fire has hundreds more books stored inside of it than on all of my book cases put together. Yes, hundreds of books. Romance books, classic novels, recipe books and DIY guides. Stored right inside.

This is not the future, this is amazing wonderful technology right now and I love it!

Fabric design cover for your Kindle Fire is elegant, protective and lightweight. This cover also has an inside pocket for storing notes, etc.

 

Stylus Accessories

You don't need to use a stylus with your Kindle Fire but I find that I do like to. Even with my protective glare proof cover in place I still don't want to get fingerprints on the front display, although it all cleans and wipes off very easily if you do.

My stylus hooks right onto the little band of my cover so I have it with me wherever I go, otherwise I know I would be looking for it all the time. These cool accessories are available in lots of colors and sizes and some even are also real pens for total convenience.

Here's my Kindle Fire hanging out with my laptop computer. Check out the size, how small and thin it is. Perfectly portable for traveling and even going room to room at home. The Kindle Fire is not a substitute for a full computer but if you have ever dragged your laptop with you to the doctors office or on a plane then you know that unless you need to do some heavy duty work business the Kindle is way easier to bring along as your traveling companion.

Finish reading your book, your magazine, listen to some music or catch up on your emails while you are on the go.

Can't Bear To Be Without My Kindle

If you can't bear to be without technology today, would love to be able to read all the new lenses or work on your own, or if you go crazy without access to your email and Facebook page then you will love how easily the Kindle Fire connects to a WiFi network. You do have to have access to a network because it doesn't have it's own network card but when you are in the area of one, it helps connect for you. I find the speed terrific and have never had a problem accessing anything online.

Even in it's small and thin size, see how cute it looks next to my stuffed animals, the resolution is gorgeous, photos look terrific and the screen is just never blurry or uncomfortable.

I take my Kindle Fire with me everywhere. Even if I don't have a WiFi connection available I can read my books, check out the latest edition of my magazines, play games, you name it there's always plenty to do.

Yes that's what I do. I work out with my Kindle Fire. I used to have to pop the DVD into the DVD player, turn on the tv, go into that room and wait until no one else is watching that particular TV with the DVD player, but now, I can work out wherever and whenever I want to with my Kindle. Here I am in the picture above working out, OK it's not really me but this really is my favorite workout playing on my Kindle.

I found and bookmarked my favorite workout on YouTube and I just turn on my Kindle Fire, tap my bookmark and voila, I am working out with great sound, nice picture and super convenience.

Disclaimer: Turning on your Kindle Fire to watch your favorite workout while eating potato chips and not working out too will not help you lose weight! When the Kindle can do the workout for us it really will be the best selling in the world.

Page In A Book On Your Kindle Fire

Here's how a page in your book looks. Easy, easy to read. And you can change the appearance. You can make the font size bigger or smaller and make the screen brighter or darker. In the top left you can see my book mark. You just tap the top of the page and your book mark appears.

You can highlight, bookmark specific areas if you want to go back to that someday. You can skip ahead or go back to the last page, hey no cheating! And don't worry if you don't remember where you were, just go to your last bookmark and start reading whenever you are ready. If you close this book to read another or get a great recipe to cook up, your book marks will be ready when you are.

Take a page from my book of experience, I love reading and now it's even better than ever.

They are all great resources for games, music and Kindle Fire updates as well, so please you really want to check them out!

Kindle Screen Protectors

You definitely want to invest in a screen protector! It will keep your Kindle safe and clean from fingerprints, smearing, scratches and scuffing. Many of the screen protectors offer anti-glare finishes and they are just about invisible one you put one on. Lots of them will even include a free cleaning cloth as well.
