Christmas has come early as Santa’s little helper has brought us a Kindle, and I love it. The black letters against a white background are easy to read, even in bright sunlight. It’s light to carry and fits easily into my handbag. Smartly clad in its crimson leather cover it feels like a book and I soon got used to clicking to turn the page. The next page comes up instantly, or you can easily flick back if you missed something. You can place bookmarks so that it automatically finds where you’re up to next time you open it, add notes if you wish, or highlight and save quotes. Useful if you are using a book for research purposes. And you can do searches of certain words or topics, or look up the meaning of a word in a dictionary as you read.
I’ve no intention of giving up reading ordinary print books, but love the Kindle as an addition to my bookaholic lifestyle. I can see me reading even more books, not less.
