  • And then there are just a couple of things that I don't like

      This thing is AWESOME! There are so many good things to say about it, so I’ll just list them.

      1) Convenience, convenience, convenience! This is much easier to carry around than an actual book would be.

      2) You can download books anywhere. I’ve downloaded books at school, at work, in traffic, lying in bed at midnight when all the other bookstores are closed, when it was snowing out and everywhere was closed. You cant download from the Kindle (everything’s wireless) or you can

      get on and buy a book from the website and it’ll be wirelessly delivered to your Kindle.

      3) Books are delivered ridiculously fast.

      4) The most I’ve ever paid for a book is $10.99. All the books are super cheap. There are no taxes on these books, no delivery fee, no wireless fee. So much money is saved, including the gas you save not having to drive to and from the bookstore.

      5) I did the math. If I download 100 ...

      • books a year, I can do that for 30 years before space runs out. I’ll be 50!

        6) There’s a built in dictionary and you can write notes.

        7) You can get online to Google things or check your email. The Kindle does everything!

        8) The screen resembles paper so there’s no glare.

        9) You can play music or have a computer read your book to you.

        10) Your Kindle can read PDF files.

        11) You can change the size of the words on the page.

        And then there are

        just a couple of things that I don’t like.

        1) If you’re shopping the Kindle store on your Kindle, you have to type the name of the author or the title EXACTLY right or it just says that there were no matches. So if you write “Hunger Games” instead of “The Hunger Games” it won’t correct you, it’ll just say there were no matches.

        2) And not all the books are available for the Kindle. For example none of the Harry Potter books are available for download.
