Classic Literature! I just love it! From Sherlock Holmes to Treasure Island I just can’t get enough of those older books, and the list of books I would love to read is…staggering. My bookshelf at home is bursting with books, old and new, and I’m running out of room as it is. I like holding a real book in my hands, but I can’t keep buying all the books I want to read until I buy that library I’ve been dreaming of owning.
This is why the Kindle is such a relief to me. I can read all the old classics without running out of room on my shelf. True, my Kindle has limited storage space, but it’s still more space than I have on my shelf, and given the number of classic books in existence that’s a relief.
There’s another reason I love my Kindle. I’ve heard it said that the best things in life are free. If this is true, then some of the best things in life are available for the Kindle. A lot of old classics are available for FREE! You’ll have to pay for an expensive device, but once you do E-Books are cheaper and some are free, like Oliver Twist. How classic can you get?
I can’t tell you how the Kindle compares to other E-Readers. I bought the Kindle with special offers because it is what I could afford, but the truth is what I got was all I really needed. Some of the extra features that other E-Readers have aren’t necessary in the least. I don’t need 3G, I don’t need a bigger size, I don’t need a touch screen, I don’t need color, and I don’t really need anything except for something to read books with. I can now check up on the old classics more easily than I ever could before, and that’s a good thing, so I love my Kindle, and that’s the truth of it.
Of course if I ever get that library, I’d probably forget about the Kindle completely, but that’s a different story.
