Should I Buy a Kindle?

Updated on November 30, 2014

Kindle is On Sale

Over the last few years, people have been raving about owning a Kindle or a Kindle Fire rather than reading a traditional book. But many people have been afraid to dive in and start reading their books on an e device like Kindle.

But now the original eReader is cheaper than ever with the price of Kindle of a mere $79.00 many people (including me) are thinking that it is a good time to jump into the world of electronic reading devises. I mean that is really a great price. And It would be much easier to carry a light weight Kindle rather than a bunch of books. And it is just like reading paper. You can download as many books as you want and read them again and again, just like a paper book. Also Amazon has a huge collection of Kindle books.


Kindle is perfect for bookworms like me!

I usually read one book a week but it isn't unusual for me to read a few. I love to read. Because books can get to be so expensive, I do tend to get lots of books at the public library. Unless of course it is by one of my favorite authors that I know I would love to read a few times. However, Amazon has a really large selection of Kindle books which are much less then traditional books.

But, I really just like the feel of a book in my hand. And of course I love having a nice book shelf of my favorite classics. When you have a real book you can load it to a friend.

Well I guess I am still undecided. Who knows maybe someone will decide for me and give me a Kindle for Christmas. I guess I'll just have to wait and see.

      I don't know if I should or not. I am thinking about using that money on an iPad and getting the Kindle App.

      I have been always just brushing these off with the standard nah I like real books. However the new Kindle DX is pretty neat, and the Nook and of course the iPad. I am starting to think maybe...
