I happened to be watching the Oprah Winfrey show last October when she was enthusiastically introducing her audience to the Amazon Kindle. I was very impressed with this unique wireless reading device and its ability to make reading so enjoyable and convenient no matter where you are. Since my husband is an avid reader, and I thought he would enjoy receiving a Kindle, it then became my choice of a Christmas gift for him. I ordered the Kindle immediately after the show and I couldn't wait for Christmas to arrive so I could present him with a Kindle of his very own! His first reaction on Christmas morning was cautious enthusiasm. He thought that the Amazon Kindle would just be another one of those electronic devices that would be impossible to figure out how to use. My husband was pleasantly surprised to find out that was not the case. There are simple instructions enclosed with the Kindle plus there is a "manage your Kindle" installed on the device that makes it really easy to begin using your Kindle immediately. Any questions he had were answered promptly by Amazon's Kindle support via e-mail or telephone. Amazon's service is first rate and he actually found it easy to use. Even for someone who is very skeptical using technical equipment and dealing with support. Below are some of the key features that my husband found so appealing about the Amazon Kindle: *Through the miracle of wireless technology, he was able to purchase a new book from Amazon and it arrived on his Kindle within 60 seconds at a discounted price to boot, without any additional fees. *The Kindle weighs just 10.2 ounces and is lighter than a paperback and is only a mere 1/3 of an inch thick. He can flip through pages with fingertip control using either hand. *He can take notes, make a bookmark, get word definitions from a built-in dictionary as well as play music while reading a book on his Kindle. *No more cumbersome books in his attaché case, or hundreds piling up on the bookshelf.


*He can store more than 1,500 books on his Kindle. We'd need a much bigger house to store that many books! *Amazon provides several very useful accessories for the Kindle: an attractive protective cover, which permits better grip and attachments for a night light, writing pad, pen and business card holders. He even ordered a light for late night bedside reading or for a darkened airplane flight. *Daily newspaper subscriptions are available on the Kindle for many major US newspapers as well as a nice selection of popular magazines. In addition, you get periodic updates from Amazon on new books available for the Kindle as well as older books that become available, along with the always helpful Amazon customer reviews. This device is so exciting that I ordered the new up-graded Kindle 2 for myself. As an added bonus, If two users (up to six) are on the same account, a book downloaded to one Kindle may also be electronically downloaded to the other at no additional charge. If you enjoy reading, then you really owe it to yourself to order an Amazon Kindle of your very own!
