Hi Gang,

I was just reading some of the Kindle reviews on Amazon and I have to say that this one caught my eye. I think this Kindle user sums up my experience, so I'll let his words do the Kindle justice!

"I've had my Kindle for just two days now and I am already in love with it. This is, without a doubt, my favorite electronic device. Now I don't want to mislead you. I am a bit of a computer/technology geek. But I'm also 54 years old so there is certainly a fair amount of "old school" thinking and behavior in me. But the fact is, the resolution and readability of the Kindle, under any lighting conditions, including bright, outdoor sunlight conditions, are simply outstanding. I've already purchased and downloaded several books and two magazines. Download times are eactly what Amazon says they are for the Kindle. You really can download an entire book in about a minute or less.

I did read through the hardcopy manual as well as the user's guide that is preinstalled on the Kindle itself but I did not have to spend much time doing so. Using the Kindle is easy because it is just so, so intuitive. From now on, the only reason I'll actually buy a hardcopy version of a book is only because the title is not available for download to my Kindle. And there are now over 170,000 books available for download to the Kindle. I cannot recommend highly enough this superb, user-friendly, powerful electronic device. I am positively thrilled with my purchase. I can assure you, if you buy a Kindle you will not be disappointed. "

Ok - I hear about this scenario a lot. I really want to see a Kindle, touch the Kindle, and play with the Kindle, but there is nowhere to try out a Kindle. Here's my suggestion. I bet that Amazon doesn't want to hear it, but who cares. Go to Amazon and buy a Kindle! Have them deliver the eReader and give it a shot. Buy a few eBooks and see what you think. I'll bet you like it - if you don't like it - simply return the eReader to Amazon. They will gladly take it back if you stay within the return policy, which I have found is pretty liberal. So what are you waiting for!? Check out my Amazon Kindle store and test drive a Kindle


At first I was a little weary about trying to read a magazine on the Amazon Kindle. We all know how we like to sit back, relax, and flip through a traditional magazine. Can you recreate that same experience with an electronic eReader? Are eBooks and eMags as good as the real thing? In one word: Absolutely.

At first you might think it is awkward to hold, and all in all just not that convenient. Think again. With having tons of subscriptions at my fingertips, I find that I get a lot more out of my Kindle magazine subscriptions than ever before!


There is an important election taking place here in the US this year. With both candidates having selected their running mates, I thought now would be a great time to recommend a political Amazon Kindle book.

This book is non-partisan. This book is filled with facts and history - not rhetoric and pandering. Check it out - it's a winner. Click any of my Amazon links and jsut search for the title.

"US Constitution, Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation, Bill of Rights, and Guide to US Government" for mobile reference, Kindle edition.


Here's a great video I found on YouTube that gives a good description of the Amazon Kindle, and the fact that you can see the guy holding it gives you a good sense of how big it is, how you can hold it, etc. The Kindle really is light and portable, which in my opinion makes it better than some of the other ebook readers.
