Last week I was lucky enough to win an Amazon Kindle 2 (global edition) on Ebay and I have to say that I adore it. I can’t do everything, well, to be honest I haven’t tried but the device I bought has a wonky screen but other than that it is prefect and was a bargain at $80.
So far I have downloaded 3 samples, 2 novels and 1 novella. I have to admit that I thought it was mostly hype about the Kindle and I tend to avoid anything that is surrounded by lots of hype but I decided to take the plunge because I am considering using Kindle (well, the DTP) for my books and what I have seen so far has truly impressed me.
I am also looking into maybe one day getting an Apple Ipad and that is a big step because I just don’t see the appeal of Apple products ( and I am not saying they are bad but just not for me) and I m bias because I loathe touchscreen.
I never thought that I would love my Kindle as much as I do, it is truly awesome.
So, thank you Amazon for bringing a wonderful device to the market.
