I had no idea...,
This review is from: Kindle Wireless Reading Device, Free 3G, 6" Display, White - 2nd Generation (Electronics)My husband got this for me for Christmas. When I first opened the box, I had no idea even what that device was. My husband explained that it was a Kindle and I had a vague idea that it was an e-reader of some sort, and that's it. I was curious, so spent some time playing with the Kindle, then decided to try to download a book. The first time took a few minutes, but now it's super easy. We don't have cell phone coverage where I live, so I do most of my downloading through the computer. I've also downloaded books directly onto my Kindle while I was in town, just so I'd know how. It's remarkably easy, even for us technologically challenged types.
I am so glad my husband did the research and chose the Kindle as a gift. I love this thing. I'm reading more now than ever, and I've always read a lot. It's just easier and more fun now! I thought I'd miss the whole "Book in my hand" part of reading, but I don't miss it at all. I've been showing and telling all of my friends and family about my kindle. I'm pretty sure I should be on commission!
