I am currently debating whether to buy a Kindle and need your help as I just can't make a decision! Saying that I am currently leaning towards getting one as I've just seen that it has a 4.5 star rating on Amazon- and 6,779 reviews at the time of writing.
In true list form my arguments for the Kindle are:
♥ It will save me a lot of space and weight in my suitcase on holiday as I always take a pile of books away and it would be ever so handy to have them all in one place.
♥ It will lighten my everyday bag
♥ It has great Amazon reviews and I'm always hearing people raving about it
♥ I think I will read more (I don't know a particular reason why- I just think I will!)
♥ I think it's pretty and would be excited to get a nice case for it
And my arguments against:
♥ It's a bit pricy
♥ I worry about the glare of it and whether it will feel like I'm reading off a 'screen'. Will it be difficult to read in the sun? The description says there's no glare but I'd like to see for myself
♥ I love reading a proper hardback/paperback and this is obviously a different reading experience
My brother has just said I shouldn't get one as my reasons are lame and there aren't many 'proper' ones. I agree slightly but I think I still want one.
So please help me out with this and let me know your thoughts- and if you have a Kindle please let me know how you're getting on with it!
