I have to admit it, I'm a bookworm. I've been reading books for as long as I can remember. My first interactions with literature were provided by my mother, when she used to read "Snow White" or "Sleeping Beauty" to me. Eventually I grew out of the princess phase, but I kept reading, everything I could put my hands (and my eyes) on. Every book my older brother had, I read right after he finished them. I simply love books. So, when Amazon's Kindle came along, I wasn't sure if I wanted to change my paper print books for a reading device. No pages to turn? Not smelling the familiar scent of paper? Imagine, the horror! And...then I calmed down, rationalized the whole thing, did my research, and bought a Kindle, and I love it. If you're still not fully convinced that reading your favorite books in a technological device is a good idea, read on, I'll explain what this very cool gadget can do for you (and for the planet). Let's start with the basics, what is a Kindle? A Kindle is a wireless reading device designed to let you download and read books (Ebooks) in it, without having to connect to a computer or have paper print books. PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION- this device weighs 8.5 ounces and is 1/3 of an inch thin. So, you see, is very light and easy to store. It has a full keyboard, a Menu button, so you can decide what you want to do, whether it is to download a new book, read one you already downloaded, look up the dictionary, share your books (I'll talk more about this feature later on), share passages from it, or have the device read your book to you out loud (another feature I will be discussing in a while) to you. now, let's go into more details about the many features this little gadget has. 1. BUILT IN WI-FI- this means that you don't need to pay for your Kindle to get connected to the internet in order to download your books. You can connect to Wi-Fi hotspots from wherever you are. And if you are anywhere in the US, you have free access to all AT&T hotspots. It's wireless delivery is also free and is quite a speedy one; you can download a book in around 60 seconds. 2. E INK PEARL TECHNOLOGY- what this means is that electronic pages get a better resolution, making them easier to read, even in direct sunlight. The point of this is that the contrast ratio gets as close as it can to a paperback book,with no glare, so you can read it without a problem, even if you're under bright lights. This technology also speeds up page turns, making it happen in a fraction of a second. E Ink doesn't need any power to hold an image or page of text, which means you can hold a page for weeks without bookmarking it without your device losing battery power. 3. WHAT CAN BE DOWNLOADED- I've been talking a lot about books here, but the truth is that you can also download magazines, blogs, shorts stories, and audiobooks using a Kindle. What's

more, you can download out-of-copyright books (written before 1923) for free. You can also download other free books of articles, and some will cost 99 cents, (cheap or free books are a good tactic new authors use in order to get attention to their writings when they first publish them). You'll find that Kindle has hundreds of thousands of books, just go to the Menu, select what type of writing you want to download (ebook, audiobook...etc.) and the type the title, or browse them by category to see if you can make some interesting new literary discoveries. 4. STORAGE CAPACITY- the storage capacity of this device is of 2GB in the original Kindle and the Kindle 2, and 4GB in the Kindle 3 and Kindle DX, you can store up to 3,500 books in your original Kindle. Also, the battery power it has allows it to be off it's base for up to two months, without charging it, if you read no more than half an hour a day. If you read for an hour a day, the Kindle will remain charged for up to a month without needing to be charged. 5. BOOK LENDING- yes, you can lend your Kindle ebooks to someone else. The way this works is that you can download a book and, if it is one that you can lend (wich will be determined by the publisher or rights holder), you can lend it to another person, and they don't need to own a Kindle to read the lended book, they can use their PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, BlackBerry, and Android to read the book as long as they're using one of the Kindle reading apps on their devices. Remind them to get started with their reading as soon as they can, as you can only lend your book for 14, and you can do it just once for each lended book, and you won't be able to read that book while is lended. Now, how do you know if you can lend a specific book? Select your product, the go to "Product Details" there, you'll find a category that says "lending", if you see "Lending: Enabled", it means the book can be lended. If you're ready to lend one of your books, go to the article you want to lend, press the "Lend this Book" button and you'll be redirected to a page where you can fill out information regarding the borrowers e-mail address, name and you can write an optional message if you want before lending your book. 6. READ TO ME- with the text-to-speech feature, users can have the Kindle read them English language content out loud. There is more than one Kindle available out there right now. So, which one is better for you? The original Kindle has wi-fi only, which means you can connect and download books as long as you're in a hotspot. If you want access to the internet all the time, in any place, you're better off having the Kindle 3G, which also has wi-fi plus a 3G connection. This is specially useful if you travel a lot, as you can download and read books from anywhere in the world. Both of these devices have a 6" screen, while the Kindle DX has a 9.7" screen, the latter comes with 3G integrated.
