Don’t be the last person in your social circle or group of friends who owns a Kindle; that’s just lame — like your uncle who raves about the iPhone. You’re like, welcome to the 21st century, I’ve had one since 2007.
Here are three reasons to stop putting off the inevitable and buy a Kindle:
1. The environment, brosef! I’m not a tree hugger, but I do think it’s wasteful at this point to cut down trees, in order to manufacture books filled with text, only to ship said books across the country using gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel to a tier-one warehouse — and then from that warehouse to your home or business address. Hugely inefficient, when you could just wirelessly download the newest hardcover releases onto your Kindle — and have it in your possession within 60 seconds. Plus, the wireless is free, and you can get new releases the moment they become available. No more worrying about your favourite author’s next instalment selling out. No more “pre-ordering.”
2. Insane storage and battery life. You can store up to 3,500 books on the newest Kindle, and the battery can last up to a month on a single charge! (Assuming you are in read-only mode and have switched off wireless.)
3. Over 1.8 million FREE books. Seriously. This alone is a major reason to buy a Kindle right now. From Amazon’s marketing materials for the 6″ Kindle: “Over 1.8 million free, out-of-copyright, pre-1923 books are available to read on Kindle, including titles such as The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Pride and Prejudice, and Treasure Island.”
Already own one? Great, congratulations on joining the 21st century! Here are some recommended books to read on your device.
