It has to be said. I like a gadget. So I’ve been giving occasional thought to getting myself one of Amazon’s Kindle devices. I’ve had a play with display models at the supermarket and been impressed. Mrs H likes the idea too, but although £150 might not be a fortune in the grand scheme of things, the realities of keeping my kids mean that I probably shouldn’t indulge myself this time.
However, all is not lost. Last week I downloaded the Kindle app onto my laptop and my phone. It might be quite the same as the real device, but my first impressions are very positive. So far I’ve only tried free books, but I’ll seriously consider a Kindle download the next time I make a book purchase from Amazon. I’d be interested to hear other people’s experience of the Kindle (or other eReaders). Is it time to take the plunge?
