The book on kindle

The book on KindleI would like to share why I believe getting a Kindle is a good idea. Hence the title “The Book on Kindle”  I browsed through countless sites, read dozens of reviews  and asked from friends who owned Kindles for their opinions and user experiences. I made the decision finally to get myself  one because:

The Book on Kindle is Portable and Convenient

Unlike all books on my shelves, which are sometimes heavy and obtrusive, the Kindle library is completely portable.  So, if   you are traveling or on vacation, the kindle will be your friend. A Kindle is lighter and smaller than even one book, much less three or four.  Even if you happen to forget your Kindle and find yourself waiting or needing to kill some time, you can take advantage of the free Kindle reading app on your smart phone and have all your books right there at your fingertips. They will even sync to the page you were reading on your other device.

It Cost less

You will discover that there are literally hundreds–perhaps even thousands–of free books available on Kindle.  Since Amazon only allows most books to be free for a few days that list changes constantly. The best way to keep up with the constantly changing selections is through a site like, which selects 15-20 of the very best free eBooks each day to save you the effort. Also, e-books from the library are free. Over the years I have spent a lot of money purchasing books but now with the kindle, I am saving money as it cost much less than books.

It’s Unobtrusive

I enjoy reading in bed at night before I go to sleep but the light used to really bother my wife.  I love that with the lighted case for my Kindle, I can read without disturbing my wife.  Depending on which model you choose, it may or may not include a lighted or back-lit screen. The $67 Kindle does not have a light, but there is a nice case available which includes light powered by the Kindle battery.  This is the one I have and it works just great!

Other reasons for e-books are:  It is clutter free, the convenience of downloading a new book/s without having to go the bookstore or wait for shipping, saves trees. I can also read a book on all my devices. The book on Kindle is the way to go. Happy reading!

  1. Hi Rodeves,

    Great post on kindle books. I find your post very informative and helpful (because I’m contemplating on whether to get one myself.) I took the liberty to read other posts on your site and find it very interesting. I will bookmark your site to use as reference for future cases. I wish you the best in your future endeavors in online marketing.


  2. Very well written and all the information categorized very nicely. Reading through post felt like getting a deliberately slow presentation from the store salesperson.
    I followed the links and I was amazed that they actually have such a range.
    I noticed that they only mention in detail about the Kindle Voyage. Do you know if the battery life of $67 Kindle lasts the same as the Kindle Voyage?
    The Voyage model is said to hold thousands of books, how many does the $67 Kindle hold?

    1. Hi Ronniem,

      Thank you for visiting my site. You asked the battery life. Firstly, the Kindle has the advantage of significantly lower consumption than tablets. The kindle that cost around $67 has a one month battery life. With the Kindle voyage, the battery life is six weeks. This is based on a half hour of reading per day with wireless off and the light setting at 10. Battery life will vary based on light setting and wireless usage. I hope this helps. Wishing you all the best!

  3. I enjoyed your website, I learned about the different Kindles and if I were to get one I would get it from you. I don’t read books that much but I might start. I wish that the Kindle would read the book to me cause I am a slow reader.

  4. I love my Kindle. As an avid reader, it is nice to carry all your books in such a slim tiny package. The portability is nice. I like to have access to all my books with one slide of a finger. You don’t have to remember where you left off, it remembers for you. Which is a great feature for me, since I forgot where I ended on a page. I used to fold pages down and underline the last sentence I read in paper back books.The price is fabulous. I always love a good deal.

    1. Hi Kristie,

      Thank you for your comments. I am glad you are enjoying the great features found on the Kindle. And yes, I agree with you about the price, it is fabulous Happy reading!

  5. I like your point of view on the kindle, and I agree. The kindle seems to be very smart and handy, especially if you travel a lot. I’ve been wondering if I should purchase a kindle to my mother, as a present. She is always using the “The Book is too big to handle” excuse, and she keeps telling me that she wish to start reading again. It might solve the problem!

  6. I’ve had a Kindle for years now – wouldn’t be without it. One of the best buys I ever made.

    I normally get through a book a week, so my house got pretty cluttered pretty fast. Now I can have as many books as I want – and the house is tidy too!

    It’s also much easier to read with one hand. I recently read “A Confederacy of Dunces” by John Kennedy Toole. A great book, but not available on Kindle! I found it really clumsy trying to read a “real” book again.

    Beats me why more people don’t switch to the Kindle!
