Cons Not the latest Paperwhite display
Recommended it? Yes

My first Kindle experience was several years ago when I purchased a Kindle for my wife.  To my surprise she REALLY liked it and suggested that I try it out.  I was skeptical as I like hard cover books, but in using her Kindle I found that I too liked reading on it.  I decided to...

Kindle 3 - faint (as in hard to read) praise

bysundogg99 Oct 6, 2012
21 Helpfuls 22 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Portability, shared content, encourages reading by making it incredibly convenient.
Cons Almost useless keyboard; e-ink technology is considerably less than perfect.
Recommended it? Yes

It's not an easy sell to get a true book lover to give up those beloved volumes.  Thus, e-readers present an interesting marketing challenge: most people who enjoy reading also have an extraordinary fondness for books themselves.  The sensory aesthetic of paper, cloth, and leather is not...

I have had my Kindle for almost two years now, and it is one of my most treasured possessions. I am a major book worm, so when my boyfriend got it for me for my birthday, I cannot even begin to describe how excited I was. He definitely earned some major bonus points for that purchase!

I love the smell of new books and find browsing bookstores to be relaxing. I have dreamt of having a library full of leather books... Read full review »

After a ton of research on e-readers, I decided to go with a Kindle.  I was impressed with it from the moment I took it out of the shipping box. This e-reader was very lightweight, very sleek in look, and the perfect size.  It is about the size of a regular hardback book (which I prefer... Read full review »

Cons Cost of ebooks<br>Not backlit<br>Awkward qwerty keyboard
Recommended it? Yes

When e-readers first came on the market, I was one of the biggest skeptics out there. As a life long lover of books, I couldn't even begin to see how an e-reader could possibly replace a book. I figured that reading a Kindle, Nook or other e-reader would be no different than reading a computer... Read full review »

I read a lot of books. Most of the books I read in a given year are supplied to me free of charge by authors, publishers, and other promoters, in exchange for a review.

Cons Web browsing is limited, slow and buggy, general usuability could be improved a bit.

The kindle is not something I would usually spend money on. I don't particularly care for a model where I have to buy the device and the content for it separately, and where the digital content is in a proprietary format as well. However, there were a few things that attracted me to buying the... Read full review »
