My Thoughts On The Kindle “E-Reading Revolution”

The “E-Reading Revolution” has recently become a huge thing for me. When I finally broke down and signed up for a Kindle account, I downloaded the Kindle app on both my laptop and tablet. And after just a few months of using the Kindle E-Reading service, I have to say that I am very impressed with its many efficient features.
The main thing I like about Kindle is that you have access to thousands of books, magazines, and newspapers that you can download straight to your device from wherever you are. And the price ranges on the books span from completely free to about 12 dollars, making easy-reading quite affordable. They’ve also got something called an “E-Ink” display.. The E-Ink display makes the screen look exactly like you are reading a book, making the advantages multiply in number, as it is much easier on your eyes than a back-lit LCD display. The light does not create a glare or have any effect in the display at all. This means that if you want to read outside or in bright environments, you can feel free to do that.

I also like the fact that not all of the books in the Kindle store are long novels. There are some shorter books (known as novellas) that can be fun to read. But the best feature of E-Reading is that when you are done with a book, you can just delete in instead of having paperback books cluttering up shelves. This is also environmentally friendly because you can read all the books you want not have to worry about wasting paper.

Having different versions of the Kindle E-Reader is great, too; with one including solely WIFI— the other WIFI and 3G. The battery times on each are amazing, ranging from 2 weeks to 2 months depending on if you leave your WIFI on or not. But the final service that I thoroughly enjoy is Kindle’s textbook service for college students. This feature is great because it reduces the amount of weight a student has to carry, making for time saved and simpler supplies for classes.

All in all, I think the Kindle and the services that Kindle provides are VERY good. I see all-paperless reading in the future and, to be honest, I rather like that idea.

POST BLOG QUESTION
What do you think of the Kindle/Kindle service? Do you think it’s possible for a paperless future in reading?

  1. I dont like the papreless idea. Sure it seems like the eco-green thing to do. But to me, I still love the feeling of a paperback. The smell of a book. Plus there are the jobs of printing, the people who fix the printers etc etc. I have an argument for you to consider.

    What will create more jobs?
    An all technical world where we need certifications to keep and to get a job or to hold onto old fashion ideologies such as mechanical machines for prints (printing, publishers) etc etc.

    Then consider this, we have digitization the music industry allowing the pirate of music albums. If we do this with book publishers. It will be easy to leak at least with hard and paperback prints. Its harder to steal without paying.
