The new Amazon Kindle e-Reader is a high tech treasure for any 21st century reader. Millions of books, newspapers, magazines, games and documents can be downloaded with this handy device, and one has access, as well, to the archives of the many libraries that now lend out their volumes to be read on e-Readers. Amazon even has its own lending library now, where readers have access to thousands of books, including more than a hundred current and former New York Times bestsellers. Those readers who might sometimes be forgetful will incur no past due fees from the Amazon library either.
For lovers of the world’s greatest literature, there are free downloads of pre-1923 out-of-copyright classics such as Pride and Prejudice and The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. The Open Library, Project Gutenberg and ManyBooks.net offer more than a million other titles ready for free download to a Kindle e-Reader, as well.
The new Kindle is lighter and more compact than ever. It weighs just six ounces and fits handily in any pocket or small purse. It holds fourteen hundred books at a time – one’s own personal library – and the new E Ink screen reads as easily as real paper. There is no glare, and one can read as clearly outside under a bright sun as in the muted light of one’s own living room.
A single charge of the batteries keeps readers turning pages for up to a month – made all the easier with Kindle’s faster new page turner function — and there is always free WI FI access at AT&T hotspots across the country. One can also connect to WI FI hotspots at home or on the road. One can also e-mail personal documents or PDF’s direct to a Kindle for viewing and annotation while away from one’s pc.
For all authors wishing their books were available on the Amazon Kindle, Outskirts Press also offers an Amazon Kindle edition service, available conveniently at this link, just in time to start 2012 off right: http://outskirtspress.com/p/kindle.
