MP3s, Digital Cameras and HDTVs ruled Christmas gift lists last year. Meanwhile, the perfect electronic device that does something far more useful than play games and movies waited in the background for its turn. This year it is time for Amazon’s Kindle to be the must-have Christmas gift.
Due to my addiction to reading I have carried around bags of books on one shoulder with my laptop on the other. Now, thanks to Amazon Kindle all my reading material can be carried conveniently and electronically in a 10.3 ounce device.
Receiving an Amazon Kindle as a Christmas gift would be like having an entire library at my fingertips, no matter where I go. Kindle wirelessly downloads books, blogs, magazines, and newspapers. I wouldn’t have to find a hotspot or synchronize with my PC to download reading material. Amazon Kindle uses the same network as cell phones, only unlike cell phones once you own a Kindle there are no monthly charges. You only pay for the materials you download and read.
Amazon even lets you read the beginning of a book to see if you like it before they charge you. It’s just like visiting a bookstore, only Kindle allows the bookstore to come to you. That’s why this is a must have Christmas gift, especially for book lovers.
When Amazon Kindle was first introduced I wasn’t interested. I was afraid of eye strain, especially after looking at the computer all day anyway. Since then, I have found out that Kindle uses a display technology they call “electronic paper.” It offers sharpness and clarity, without the glare. Kindle assures you it is like reading from a book.
Receiving an Amazon Kindle as a Christmas gift will also allow me to read important newspaper subscriptions first thing in the morning and read most magazines before they reach the newsstands. This makes Kindle a must have for writers who must stay on top of current events, but it is also a perfect gift for business men and women who are on the go but need to stay in the know.
There are over 190,000 books available for Kindle. A Christmas gift like this would allow me to download and read books for pleasure, with immediate access to the sequel. It would also allow me to download more studious works for research and learning. It holds over 200 titles at one time.
I can just imagine the joy of reading any time, any place, and any literature of my choosing. That’s why Amazon Kindle is a must have Christmas gift.
My husband should have already ordered my Kindle!
