I love my Kindle

Kindle Paperwhite

There are few things I love more than information and good stories. The problem is, reading on a screen all day in a chair is not the nicest way to do so. Kindle to the rescue!

I encountered the e-reader Kindle, by Amazon, when I was in my early teens and went to the International Baccalaureate. We had a lot of books, and they could be rather heavy at times. In addition, I had to have notebooks, a computer, as well as many loose papers for labs. Then I encountered the Kindle. It seemed rudimentary at first, with is black and white screen. But for reading text, it is the king (or queen) of all e-readers.

The version of Kindles I am using is the Kindle Paperwhite. Not only is it simple and light, compared to staring at a screen there is noticeable less eye fatigue. In addition, there is no glare. Even in bright sunlight thanks to its e-ink technology that makes irritating screen glares a thing of the past.

I tried other ways of reading e-books, for example using “normal” tablets. Sadly, they can be quite heavy and the screen glare when reading in the park during the summer is a pain in the butt. Also, it is easy to sync your own documents directly to your Kindle, right from your computer. Then they are store in the clouds, just like your books.

If you by mistake forget your Kindle, you can use the Kindle Cloud Reader, or just use the Kindle Reading App.

Right now I am reading a book from one of my favourite writers Mark Manson, with the rather humorously titled book “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life. It is taking a stab at the countless self-help books that are for the most part probably making people miserable anyway. If you like to have your daily dose of sarcasm, you should totally check that out.

The Kindle was my first and so far, my only e-reader. I don’t need another one, because I am in love with it.
