I’ve been reading reviews of the Apple iPad with great interest and am always slightly envious of those people who have one. At the same time I really like the idea of a device that does one thing well.
Our recent holiday in Malta was the first time I’ve used my Amazon Kindle in the situation where I had always thought it would really shine. When I go on holiday I have always taken a big stack of books with me and during this last week away finished 4 books. I really enjoy reading book on the Kindle and of all the devices I’ve used to read e-book the e-ink screen feels most like a book.
To be able to head off on holiday carrying (currently) 29 books within something smaller than a paperback strikes me as nothing less than a marvel. To have a battery life in excess of 2 weeks, a screen that can be easily read under most lighting conditions and the ability to add more books without needing a computer also makes this hugely practical.
We are living in the future!
