10-Uses-for-the-Amazon-Kindle-Besides-Book-Reading

Although the Amazon Kindle is best known as a digital book reader – and is designed, first and foremost, with that in mind – it can do a lot more than store and display eBooks! Here are 10 uses for the Amazon Kindle that you might not have expected.

1) Internet Browsing: Although the browser that comes with the Amazon Kindle isn’t the most advanced, it’s actually very useful in some circumstances. If you have a 3G Kindle model then you’ll never have to pay for accessing the 3G network – very handy for checking emails or simple websites if you’re away from home without a Wi-Fi connection!

2) MP3 Player: The Kindle comes with a headphone jack so that you can also use it as an MP3 player. Perfect for listening to music without having to carry around an extra device, or even listening to any audiobooks you buy.

3) Text To Voice Reader: The Kindle features a text to speech option that’ll read eBooks aloud if you need it to. Although it doesn’t sound completely natural, it’s still a very useful function to have for a number of situations.

4) Dictionary: The Kindle comes preloaded with a dictionary that means looking up words is a lot faster than it has been with traditional books. And, if you want to find out more, you can also access Wikipedia to learn more about what you’re reading.

5) Note Taking: If you’re a student, or just an avid reader, who often wants to take notes then you can finally do so without ruining the book! The Kindle has various features that help you add notes, bookmark points of interest, or highlight sentences and passages that you want to come back to later.
