E-books are gaining popularity in the market every passing day. Most authors today prefer E-publishing to traditional publishing. The whole process is pocket friendly as well as time saving. Since Amazon Kindle is the most popular E-reader, there are as many Kindle editions of books releasing every day.
When it comes to readers, paperbacks remain to be their eternal love. And why not? After all paperbacks are awesome. E-books cannot replace the feeling of satisfaction readers get while holding a book. But some smart decisions can change your life to a great extent.
Reading E-books, doesn’t mean you are doing injustice to your paperbacks. It is just that you are exploring the new world of books. If you love books, kindle should be a part of your life along with physical books. Here are few reasons to consider investing in a kindle device.
1. Light weight
Kindle is much lighter compared to physical books. A basic kindle weighs around 210 grams. It will be a boon when you are on a travel and you want your books beside you. Since Kindle can store thousands of books, you will have the luxury to read from a huge pile, rather than carrying one or two books with you.
2. Vast storage
A basic Kindle with 3GB storage can hold upto 4000 books (even more depending on the length of books). Just Imagine, 4000 Books !!!!!
Unless you have a huge space in your house, will it be ever practical to store that much physical books in your book shelves ??? Then why not consider a little space for Kindle in your drawer?
Also wherever you go, you can carry this tiny sized huge portable library with you as I mentioned earlier.
3. Glare free screen
You may have Kindle App in your phone/tablet where you read Kindle books. But at the end of the day, long screen time is only going to harm your eyes. Kindle device uses E-Ink technology which keeps its screen completely glare free and eyes friendly. It is exclusively designed for reading purpose.
4. Pocket Friendly
Who doesn’t love to save few bucks especially when it is your hard earned money? You get Kindle editions at almost half the price of paperbacks, sometimes even cheaper when there is Kindle deals going on.
The Kindle device is also pocket friendly. Note, here we are talking about the basic kindle. A Basic Kindle will cost you just Rs.5999 and during festival season you can grab it for Rs. 4999. Just give a look here.
5. Free Books
Kindle books are cheaper compared to physical books. In addition to that Kindle offers a huge bunch of free books for its customers. You can simply read them at your leisure, free of cost.
6. Kindle Unlimited
Kindle Unlimited works like a library. You need to pay a subscription fees and it allows you to borrow books. You can borrow 10 books at a time. As and when you return them, you can borrow more books. If your subscription period ends in between, the books will automatically disappear from your device. Monthly subscription will cost you just Rs.199. They also have yearly and half yearly subscription options.
7. Adjustable Font size
Sometimes you may come across books that have very small fonts. You can consider reading them on kindle where you can adjust the font size according to your eyes’ taste. Isn’t it a cool feature?
8. Inbuilt dictionary
This is the most unique feature of a Kindle e-reader. Whenever you come across an unfamiliar word, what you need to do is just long press on that word and ta-da….. the inbuilt dictionary will pop up with the meaning. You need not google it or run for a physical dictionary around your house (I know, nobody does that now-a-days 😉). But yes, for that you should have your WiFi connected.
You need not wait for days to get your favourite book delivered nor you need to search in book stores for months to find that particular book. Kindle books are just a few clicks away from your reach. Select, pay and grab your copy. That’s it .
10. Highlight Notes
Kindle allows you to highlight words/paragraphs just like you do in your physical books. But the only difference is you need not go back to those pages and search for your highlited paragraphs. There is a Notes section in Kindle where you can get all the highlighted areas at one place. When you click on them, it will take you to the respective pages.
I can go on writing about Kindle, but let me stop here.
So these were some relevant reasons why you should consider investing in a Kindle E-reader. Some people do not even consider e-books as books. That is because they have never used a Kindle. Once you start using Kindle, you will love it just like you love your paperbacks.
So when are you going to buy a Kindle?😉
And those who own a kindle, do share your experience. Do you agree that Kindle should also be a reader’s best friend?
