Excerpt: I just received the Kindle DX as an early Christmas present, and before reading the instruction manual, I was able to figure out most things by myself. I like the fact that you can change the font size (these old eyes just aren't what they used to be), and enjoy the feature that will flip the screen to landscape (or even upside-down) just by rotating the device.
Excerpt: I am an avid reader. Even though I am a full time worker + full time mom, I read at least a book a week. The Kindle has made my reading obsession so much easier and much more practical.It fits in my purse so that I can take advantage of any free time I might come upon during the day. I also like the privacy it allows me. I love romance & paranormal book. Both of these often have some kind of sexy man on the cover.
Excerpt: Great device and wasn't even somethign I asked for. Wouldn't say I'm a bookworm but I could be had I the time. Over the winter break I read two books in four days on my new kindle. It makes reading fun and easy and it feelt great in the hand but I reccomend the case. Also, it is a tad glitchy if you leave it sitting for a while It did not just "sleep" it froze.
Excerpt: I recently upgraded to the Kindle DX after having been a Kindle user since they were originally released. I am very pleased with my decision. I read so much on the go that the kindle has been a huge help on my bags and my back. They Amazon.com selection is great. The bigger screen and overall bigger unit has been nice and easier to hold on to, plus I like the newer buttons on the keyboard. I would recommend this hands down!
Excerpt: I just wanted to be able to read and for that matter read without needing to clean off fingerprints every 5 pages. The Kindle and its massive library of choices is great. The price per book has been perfect ($5.99 -> 9.99) with an amazing assortment of FREE...yes, that's right FREE books. The most expensive book (a best seller) was $15.99. It's easy to use and I love the dictionary at the tip of my fingers for even the most complex scientific or medical jargon.
Excerpt: I have found the kindle to be a wonderfully helpful product. The screen is easy on the eyes for long reading periods. It is easy to organize my books in it and offers plenty of storage for books and pdf files. It is light and with the whispernet option very fast and easy to download books on to it. I especially love the text to speech and the adjustable font features. They make this product that much more versitile.
Excerpt: I purchased a Kindle DX in 2009. As an avid reader, I was finding that my house was slowly becoming a library-- and when we learned that we were having a baby, space in the house suddenly became a big deal! I chose the DX over the smaller Kindle for its larger storage capacity, and because I figured I'd like having the bigger screen. I was completely right!
Excerpt: I love to read and the Kindle DX is one of the best e readers out there! I bought my Kindle DX in 2009 and it's still going strong. It's very easy to get started and use the Kindle, plug it in and make sure it's charged and away you go! There are super easy instructions that help you to download your first book and to help you change the settings to what suits you The screen is large and easy to read with no glare.
Excerpt: My husband and I just received our Kindle a couple weeks ago. We were extremely pleased and astonished with the overal picture quality, ease of use, and clarity of the system. We purchased the DX so we could have the wireless download capability. This feature caused this version of the Kindle to be more expensive then the other version, but certainly allows for convenience, flexiblity and ease of download in a wireless free environment.
Excerpt: I received a kindle as a gift from my husband and as much as I absolutely love it, there is good and bad things about it. It's very portable and comes with a cover to protect it when you transport it. An entire library of books is in your reach within minutes and you get the books immediately instead of having to wait for them to come in the mail. The downside to the kindle is it can become an expensive addictive habit for people who read a lot.
