Wow, I did something rather stupid. I ordered the new Kindle 2 from Amazon.
The stupid part is that it’s so expensive. Not sure how I will pay for it, but I guess I will have to find a way.
ON the new Kindle2 you can adjust the size of type, use it as a "talking book" and it’s not back lit. So you need light to read but you are NOT looking at a light.
Because my eyesight is declining, and reading is my passion I know this will be a huge benefit to me.
It’s difficult to hold a book and a magnifing glass and try to read and do it all one-handed.
I am so excited , I should get it in the mail Monday or Tuesday. I don’t even have it yet, but I have downloaded three books already.
Books are so much cheaper, and you can download a complete book in just a few seconds to a minute or so. And do it totally wirelessly, you just click on which you want to purchase right on the screen and download it immediately.
I am so excited and scared at the same time.
Do you have a E reader of any kind ? If so, how do you like it? Do you have the new Kindle 2?
Hope I can learn how to use it properly. You can even get you newspaper on it.
