I am an avid reader- going to the library at least once a week! The best thing you can do for the environment, saving trees, paper and energy is of course to order a Kindle
I have placed the Kindle on my wish list for so many reasons, not least that libraries are going through many budget cuts, I don’t want to buy any more books and I want to have available to me at anytime a choice of reading materials.
Other reasons that it is great:
1.) You won’t have to carry around a ton of books with you
2.) Take up less space, especially if you travel
3.) Use as a map by using Google maps
4.) You can also listen to free audio books on your Kindle and
5.) You can use online apps such as Yahoo messenger, Gmail, Google reader, and the mobile version of Google calendar.
6.) Play games
7.) The Kindle is also a picture viewer. If you would like to start a slide show, go to picture view mode and then press Alt + 0 this will initiate the slide show. You can use Alt + 1 to begin the slide show and Alt +2 to end it. It’s also possible to initiate a slide show of any document just press Alt + 0 while viewing and take it from there.
There it is- when someone asks me what I want- I will refer them to this post- and hopefully I will get one for my Birthday!
