“This was the all-time most perfect gift for my husband...”

Written on: 06/12/2013 by joselynserna3 (2 reviews written)

This was the all-time most perfect gift for my husband - he loves reading and I got it for him for his birthday. However, I also ended up using it - it's small, light and my eyes don't get tired like they would from a computer screen… Read Full Review

“Perfect!!”

Written on: 19/05/2013 by JWEPJB (2 reviews written)

Better than carrying a few books around, my Kindle is perfect for me. I wonder what other people expected when they bought an electronic book reader, and were worried that it doesn't surf the net. This is not a tablet it never promised to be one to me, it does what it promises on the box, hold electronic books, and it does it superbly well. So if your want to read at home or on the move then this is for you. I have had mine for 3yrs now and have not had a problem, iv'e dropped it, knocked it… Read Full Review

“Disappointing technology, fabulous support”

Written on: 21/06/2012 by Misterfish (1 review written)

Kindle Keyboard from Ammo Summary - nice concept, very limited use, great support, wish I'd bought a tablet instead. Don't like - inability to use the wifi as an internet tool - except for buying books from Ammo. Don't like - useless music player - no means to select what is playing, nor skip tracks. Don't like - battery problems, seems to be a software glitch which runs down batteries on a day or two. Don't like - lack of french language ebooks from the minor authors and authoresses. Seems… Read Full Review

“Get one!”

Written on: 11/01/2012

Wasn't sure whether I'd take to this but it's fantastic! Just been on holiday for a week and hardly put it down the whole time. It's so clear and easy to read and it's great being able to read something which would usually be a heavy hardback and have it be light! The way the text looks on the screen is so close to the look of a real book and doesn't strain your eyes at all - it's not sharp white and black so you get a much softer feel. The only slight problem I've had with it is that it does… Read Full Review

Oceaneagle's Comment

Written on: 14/01/2012

When an aircraft is taking off or landing the consensus is that a Kindle is best switched off. This doesn't mean throwing the switch, this just puts the Kindle to sleep. You need hold that switch over for 5-7 seconds until the screen saver disappears.

“Love my Kindle 3”

Written on: 14/10/2011 by Twittingdinosaur (2 reviews written)

I love my 3G wifi kindle model. The ability to arrange your books into categories is fantastic. Using this kindle model to read books, makes me love not having to turn the pages and to be able to read outside and not having pages flapping all over in the wind. The only problem I have with it is, that sometimes it crashes and it needs to be rebooted… Read Full Review

“I really like the Kindle 3”

Written on: 10/10/2011

I've had my Kindle 3 for about 6 months. The Kindle is an odd device - it's the kind of thing where it's tough to see the benefit of it before you actually own one. Now that I've got my Kindle 3, I occasionally get asked on the train or bus "are those any good?" & here are the notes that seem to change people's minds: 1. You can highlight sections, bookmark, add notes to a book. 2. You can use it to surf the web - even abroad - without any extra cost. 3. You can download books wherever you… Read Full Review

“Kindle 3g”

Written on: 18/09/2011 by HappyGirl (3 reviews written)

I too kept thinking about purchasing a Kindle my only regret is I left it so long to make the purchase. I chose the 3g and it works really well, I love the convenience that I can pop my kindle into my bag (I do not have a huge bag) and it's there when I am out. Waiting for someone to meet up with you and it can be boring not anymore just pull out the Kindle and sit back and relax, they arrive just turn it off and put it back in your bag. No worrying about it getting crumpled in your bag (I… Read Full Review

“Kindle 3”

Written on: 17/09/2011 by oceaneagle (22 reviews written)

Macmad's review really says it all. I confess to be somewhat of a traditionalist but when I received a Kindle for my birthday together with a huge variety of books, what could I do but give it a go. I am thrilled skinny. I haven't explored any of the extra functions of the Kindle as I have been too busy reading books. I simply cannot fault it. What I would add to Macmad's superb review is that the purchase of a cheap cover from somewhere like Ebay is a must. It is comforting to know that the… Read Full Review

“ Kindle 3G a lifesaver”

Written on: 11/09/2011 by Ladyofthebann (1 review written)

I have always been an avid reader and was interested in e-books as soon as I heard about them. The price of the books put me off a little so it wasnt until I realised that Amazon prices were so reasonable that I bought one in May.I am able to buy the books I want at the same price as the paperback versions in Tesco and have even enjoyed a couple of the free books. I also travel a lot and previously needed to take a few books on holiday. I have the 3G version and although the browser is very… Read Full Review

“Feels like walking with library”

Written on: 31/08/2011 by NielCook84 (1 review written)

In short. I love kindle. I was reluctant on having a kindle because, I was less interested to miss smell of the book whilst reading a fresh book. My cousin gifted it to me last month and since then, I have not been touching any of my books rather downloading'em from Amazon. Bless the habit but, I like reading sci-fi and drama together, that keeps me fresh for both the books at 1 time. Now it feels like carrying a library with me. Albeit, I miss the smell of books now, this little companion is… Read Full Review

“Kindle on Android”

Written on: 21/08/2011 by glyn121 (4 reviews written)

I have been debating for ages to purchase a Kindle but the price of £111 has put me off. There is an alternative, Iff you own an Android mobile with a decent size screen you can download Kindle from the Android market. This is a fantastic app which costs nothing an is equally as good as the real thing. The only difference is the screen size but you can adjust the font size to your liking. All the books that are available to buy on Kindle can be bought for the Android version. A lot of books… Read Full Review

“SO SO EASY...... AND SO SO PROFESSIONAL”

Written on: 11/08/2011

Sometimes when you are offered an extended warranty people normally just think no thanks, well as the kindle is such a new device i am sure something may go wrong with it in the future, therefore i was amazed just how easy (and cheap) it was to extend the warranty to my newly bought kindle from Amazon, i was also amazed at how professional the people at SQUARETRADE were, i had already used them for my newly purchased Home phone trio package and thought that was so, so easy to set up, surely the… Read Full Review
