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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
