Ratings and Reviews
All books on the Kindle rather than just one.
I have had a Kindle for about 9 years- the ebook and the kindle fire. I had found it difficult holding and turning the pages of larger books, especially if reading in bed and am also partially - sighted so the fact you can increase the size of the text and use text to speech was very handy. I have always enjoyed reading- I was an English teacher- and find the Kindle handy to take out and about with me and especially on holiday rather than bulky books. They are also a boon to kids who have reading difficulties because the text etc can be tailored to suit them and of course they are ‘cooler’ than actual book, especially to boys, because they are in tablet form! When I downloaded the app to my iPhone, it was even more convenient and less weight to carry and I, literally, (pardon the pun), always had a book at my fingertips! I still haven’t mastered all the ways to use the app on my phone fully but will eventually. Despite my love of actual books, I would never go back voluntarily to them. My Kindles are too convenient and easy to use in all circumstances. I have recommended them to family members and friends as I think they are fantastic.
Been ‘Kindled’ since the beginning
To say I love reading is a vast understatement, the equivalent of saying I love breathing. For years I was reliant on Library books with the occasional new paperback. But as I grew older and had more ‘leisure’ both in time and money I began to buy books for myself when they were released. Which is fine but takes up space. Especially as I (like Oscar Wilde) believe that any book worth reading once is certainly worth reading again. So my home began to acquire the look of a small library. Then came Kindle. Quite small at first, not every book that I liked was available. But all the new ones were. And bit by bit older books started to be added that could only otherwise be re-read in tatty second-hand editions (libraries having long since stopped stocking any ‘old’ books in favour of PC new ones). It’s grown and expanded and I love it just as much. Even better, you don’t even need a dedicated device now, you can download a kindle app for free onto any device at all. Which means you’ve got something to read wherever you are, whenever you need it. I can only say if you haven’t already, try it NOW
Kindle app great until it freezes
I am an avid reader and love the kindle app. My husband used to hate when I read in bed as he said that the light being on and the turning of the pages kept him awake. No problem with the kindle ( as long as the screen is facing away from him!). Only problem that I have found with the latest update is that if I have been looking at other things on my iPad and then come back to the kindle app, I often get the home page and have to go through a series of procedures to get back to the book that I was reading. The procedures include closing down other apps, pressing the app until it shakes - the process prior to deleting an app - then pressing the home page button. If that doesn’t work I turn off the WiFi button for a few minutes, the final option is to do a reset - press the off button and home button at the same time. If nothing works then I leave it for a while and it usually sorts itself out when I try to re-open the kindle app. I would give the kindle app 5* but reduced it by 1* due to this irritation.
