Over the past six months, I have been lucky enough to be part of a “Kindle Group” of 6 people. That means that the six of us can share whatever books are downloaded to the Kindle Account that we have access to…thanks to our friend Teri, who lives in the US.
For copyright reasons, the Amazon Kindle has not been available on the Amazon.ca web site but we have been lucky enough to travel to the United States a couple of times and were able to download books that were in our Kindle Group archives.
I LOVE MY KINDLE !
It is easy to handle and great to know that books are available at any time day or night for you to download, or newspapers, magazines, or Blogs. Mine also allows me to alter the font and when I am beat but still feel like reading, I can plug in the head set, enable the “text-to-speech” and listen to the reader (not dramatic but accurate enough).
I’m not sure how it will work in Canada but wish that it would have been available the first day of University back in ’68 when I left the University Bookstore laden with a fortune of heavy books that I never picked up after my 1st year. The cost of a book is at least half of what you would pay (no printing or delivery) but there is an upfront cost for the hardware…
Here is some information from the Globe and Mail . I say go for it! I would be surprised if you did not enjoy the benefits…any thoughts??
