Why I Think My Kindle Is The Best Thing I Ever Bought

I ran across a post where someone was talking about why they loved their e-reader and I thought that was an excellent post (Check out Lucy’s post here). I wanted to give my own take on why my Kindle is the best thing ever.

  1. Portable: I can literally take my Kindle everywhere and it’s only slight bigger than my phone. If I decide to go somewhere (I mean, I never do..) I can bring as many books as I want and not have to worry about lugging books around.
  2. Convenient: I can switch from my Kindle to my phone app and back again and it keeps my place. I love that feature so so much. If my Kindle dies, I can keep up reading on my phone until its charged. Or if I forget my Kindle at home, I can pull up my book on my phone and just keep reading.
  3. Back Lit: Being able to read wherever and whenever is something that’s extremely important to me. Not to mention I read for hours and hours on end. So having a device that has a back lit feature and I don’t have to turn the lights on when it starts getting dark is amazing.
  4. Free Books: There are a ton of website you can sign up for that will send you the best deals on e-books for that day.  BookBub is my favorite, but I know there are more out there. Or just searching on Amazon for free books. I have hundreds of books on my Kindle and I didn’t pay a cent for half of them. I may have a steady job, but I also have a ton of bills to pay, so frugality is a must.
  5. Kindle Unlimited: Okay, so this is kind of like the fourth point, but Kindle Unlimited has allowed me to read tons and tons of books I otherwise would of had to pay for for 10$ a month. This is another penny pinching technique that I used to get more books. And there’s a lot more options on Kindle Unlimited than there is for just free e-books.

There’s my top five reasons why I think my kindle is the best thing I ever purchased. I have other reasons, like how it’s so light that it doesn’t hurt my hands (having really bad eczema on my hands makes it hurt to read physical books sometimes, especially hardcovers) but these are the main ones. I think the money I put into buying it was well well worth it considering I got a long warranty and they’ll replace it for any reason at all.

Do you have an e-reader? Why do you love yours?

Until next time!

  1. I have an e-reader! It’s so easy to carry and I can load so many books on it, especially all of the e-galleys I get from Netgalley and Edelweiss! I don’t think I could read all the books I do without it!

  4. I like mine purely for the portability. I can choose whatever I’m in the mood for without having to carry around several books. I do love the feel of a real book when I’m at home but when I’m out and about I love my Kindle (I have the Fire tablet but had a regular kindle for several years).

      Very true! Sometimes moods change!

      Also, so sorry for the late response. For some reason your comment ended up in spam. 😦 WordPress is hit or miss sometimes.


  5. You convinced me to buy a kindle 🙂 Which one do you suggest to buy?

      The one I have is the Kindle Paperwhite. It’s not super expensive and it works really really well. It’s also the one that’s back lit. If you buy the version lower, it’s not backlit. Anything higher seemed unnecessary


      1. Oh that’s good! I live in Canada, and I have seen some reviews that Kindle doesn’t work good here as Kobo does. But I didn’t like Kobos’s design at all! Thank you for your suggestion ❤️

        I’m in Canada as well! From my experience, Kindle has more ebooks + cheaper ebooks compared to Kobo. I did a bunch of research before I bought my Kindle a few months ago

        No problem!


  6. You’ve said it all! I bought my Kindle Paperwhite 2-3 years ago, and it was the best investment I ever bought! I love how much more affordable ebooks are, and how convenient it is to read at night with an e-reader. 🙂

  7. I somehow saved up for the base model of kindle(non backlit) but am in a fix whether to get it or keep reading on my phone. Since new kindle paperwhite costs as much same as the phone I own right now. So it doesn’t make any sense for me I feel. Idk just confused much. As much as I love books, kindle app has been good so far.

      The kindle app is definitely wonderful.


  8. I love my Kindle (it’s actually my husband’s but I use it more than he does. It’s the really old newspaper print kind.) I use it for all of my beta reading and to read my WIPs when I’m sick of editing on my computer. lol I wish I could get into using it more for everyday reading, but I still gravitate toward physical copies for that.

      That’s an awesome idea to read your wip on it. Must be so much easier on the eyes!

      1. It is! It also helps break up the monotony and gives me a new perspective. I’ve caught so many mistakes I’d been missing. 🙂

  9. Great post. I purchased a kindle fire a couple of years ago and just never used it because I LOVE to hold a book while I am reading. But trying to save money I discovered just how many books you can get for free and I have been using it so much more. Super convenient!
