Amazon Kindle

Christmas, 2009, is almost here. One of the hottest gifts this year is the Kindle Wireless Reading Device.

About 1/3 of an inch thick, and weighing less than a paperback, it allows you to carry approximately 1500 books at a time.

Like to read in bright sunlight? The Kindle Wireless Reading Device can do it - without the glare!
Get books delivered wirelessly in less than sixty seconds without a computer. The 3G wireless lets you download books right from your Kindle without annual contracts, no monthly fees, and no hunting for Wi-Fi hotspots!

One of the reasons I recommend the Kindle is the "Read to me" feature. Unless the books right holder does not allow it, your Kindle can read newspapers, magazines, blogs, and books out loud to you. Great for those people who love books on tape.

Your Kindle Wireless Reading Device can download samples of books so you can download and read the first chapters without having to buy the book.

The choices are amazing - with over 360,000 books, including 101 of 112 New York Times Best Sellers, plus U.S. and international newspapers, magazines, and blogs. The prices are even better - New York Times Best Sellers and New Releases are $9.99, unless marked otherwise.

If you don't leave your wireless access turned on, you can read for up to two weeks on a single charge.

You don't have to worry about losing your data. Books you purchase from the Kindle Store are backed up online in your Kindle book library at You can wirelessly re-download books available in your library. This allows you to make room for new titles on your Kindle.

Other features I love include:

Adjustable Text Size
Because one size doesn't fit all, you can increase the text size of your favorite book or periodical with the push of a button. If your eyes tire, simply increase the font size and continue reading comfortably. Kindle has six adjustable font sizes to suit your reading preference. Now every book in your library can be large print.

Bookmarks and Annotations
By using the QWERTY keyboard, you can add annotations to text, just like you might write in the margins of a book. And because it is digital, you can edit, delete, and export your notes. You can highlight and clip key passages and bookmark pages for future use. You'll never need to bookmark your last place in the book, because Kindle remembers for you and always opens to the last page you read.

Take Personal Documents With You
You can transfer personal documents to your Kindle via USB for free at any time.

Built-In Dictionary with Instant Lookup
Never get caught without a dictionary. Kindle includes The New Oxford American Dictionary with over 250,000 entries and definitions, so you can seamlessly look up the definitions of English words without interrupting your reading. Come across a word you don't know? Simply move the cursor to it and the definition will automatically display at the bottom of the screen.

Free Wireless Access to Wikipedia
Kindle also includes free built-in access to the world's most exhaustive and up-to-date encyclopedia, With Kindle in hand, looking up people, places, events, and more has never been easier. It gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "walking encyclopedia".

Kindle's keyboard makes it easy to search within a book, across your library, in the Kindle Store, or even the Web. To use the Search feature, simply type in a word or phrase you're looking for, and Kindle finds every instance in your book or across your Kindle library.

Basic Web Browser
Kindle's basic Web browser works well to read simple, text-centric Web sites such as Google and Wikipedia. Need to find a movie listing or look up a sports score? Now it's easier than ever to find the information you're looking for right from your Kindle.

Listen to Music & Podcasts
Transfer MP3 files to Kindle to play as background music while you read. You can quickly and easily transfer MP3 files via USB by connecting Kindle to your computer.

Getting a Kindle for Christmas will make anyone happy.
