One thing that was prevalent in our household while growing up was book reading. After we finished our homework, we were expected to find something to read in order to pass time. Our parents would refer to this as quality time, a way of spending some constructive time with us. Today, because of the accumulation of books I’ve read, I can only be but grateful for it. I’ve grown accustomed to reading as I’m always looking for something that I can acquire some knowledge from. My favourite subjects range from computing to self-help information.
It wasn’t until audio books came long that things started to change. As it ensured that I was always listening to something. The moment Amazon released the Kindle; all limitations on what was possible were erased. You can download eBooks within seconds to a device that can store thousands of different eBooks. The device is not too big, and not too small with a 6″ screen. Over the past couple of years, they’ve improved it with the introduction of the Kindle 2, which is capable of holding more books, with an e-ink display, anti glare capabilities, and global internet coverage without any subscription fees. It’s very easy to get a hold of this device at Amazon.
There is also another highly patronised eBook reader out there in the marketplace and it’s called Nook. Barnes and Noble are the developers of the Nook, this particular eBook reader uses Android’s operating system, the first of its kind, with a 4″ screen, and text variations. This allows for new applications to be added to it. It’s also possible for you to share your eBooks with family and friends through the Nook, blackberry or iPod touch. There’s also that ability to add additional memory so that you can store more eBooks on it. This device was released 2 years ago to date.
One of the very best attributes of these two particular eBook readers is that it’s now possible for you to find a title without having to leave your home to do so. If you are an avid reader or know someone who’s one, then you may want to take some time to check these two devices out. Anything that will enhance your overall reading experience should definitely be worth your time exploring. This device is also ideal for students and young kids. Children are also into technology today and are sure to find these devices fun and easy to use.
