Why I love my Kindle

Published 29/07/2012

As an avid holiday reader my Kindle has proved to be indispensable.

It was quite a while before I took the plunge and bought one, because I thought it could never replace the pleasure of holding and reading a real book.

But I decided to bite the bullet after lugging several large paperbacks on a two-week break in the sun, only to find that I had run out of things to read days before I was due to fly back home.

So, the next time I fled these rainy shores I was armed with my new toy.

Before I went I downloaded several weighty tomes I thought I may like to read, planning to broaden my mind.

However, once stationed on my sunbed, all I wanted was a good old thriller to go with my ice-cold beer.

Kindle to the rescue!

After a quick search in the Kindle shop I made my choices, at very little cost, and within a matter of seconds they miraculously appeared - and I was able to lose myself in the murky world of crime.

I have found it particularly useful for short breaks abroad via a low-cost airline when I am just travelling with a cabin bag and want to travel as light as possible.
