5.0 out of 5 stars Bought for my 89 year old, almost blind dad...he loves it!, January 30, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kindle Keyboard 3G, Free 3G + Wi-Fi, 6" E Ink Display (Electronics)
I love my Kindle. I got the basic one for $139 because I had wireless in my home. I just bought the 3G with wireless for $189 for my father who lives alone, back East. I was able to load his Kindle with several of my books that we share an interest in. He and I spent time on the phone setting the typeface to the largest and learning how to toggle the Text-to-Speech feature.

He was thrilled with the selections I had made and was so excited once we got him set up with the TTS that I felt he wanted to rush off the phone so he could listen to his book. He exclaimed, "its turning the pages for me!" He is so cute!!! I love him!

I decided to leave him to his new toy, but signed off saying, "Well, I hope you will still have time to talk to me on the phone now that you have your Kindle!" His response, "I'll try to work it in" Hahahahaha!

I want to add this comment: If you are reading in dim light, just change the font size to a much larger one. That makes it easy to read in the almost dark.
