5-Reasons-Why-You-Should-Buy-the-Amazon-Kindle-Over-Other-Gadgets

The Amazon Kindle has held its place at the top of the Amazon.com bestseller list for months now, and is still selling in huge numbers. With each generation, Amazon have improved the features and made it more accessible for other eBook formats. But if you’re still on the fence about whether you should buy the Kindle or another eBook reader/ tablet computer, here are five reasons why the Kindle is a winner.

1) You Only Use It To Read

There are many people out there asking why buy a Kindle when you could buy something fancy like an iPad? For a start, the Kindle costs far less. Secondly, you may not want all the bells and whistles that come with devices such as the iPad.

The truth is that the Kindle focuses on one thing: reading. Because of this, Amazon do their best to bring you the best reading experience possible. Sure, you could read eBooks on the iPad, but you wouldn’t get the benefit of the e-Ink screen, you’d find that your eyes quickly get tired out, and that you can’t read the screen out in bright sunlight.

If you love reading and want a device that won’t ruin the experience of reading physical books then the Kindle is definitely the option for you.

When it comes to shopping for eBooks for your new Kindle, there are many more sources than the Amazon Store! Due to the wide range of file formats that the Kindle can read, you have a choice of where to shop – including a huge number of websites that stock eBooks for free!

Using The Amazon Kindle Store

The Kindle Store works in much the same way as the standard bookstore on Amazon. You can search for specific book titles and authors, browse bestseller lists, or look at the latest books according to category and genre.

You can then buy the title you’ve chosen using Amazon’s “1-click” service. If you’ve never used it before, Amazon will guide you through the setup so that future purchases can be made a lot more easily. Just select which device you want to send the book to (your Kindle or apps on other devices) and it’ll be delivered within 60 seconds!

If you’re shopping on your computer and are outside the 3G network with your Kindle then you won’t be able to receive the book immediately via Wireless. Instead, simply select the option to deliver it to your computer. You can then transfer it to your Kindle via USB at a later time.
