I hope my husband reads my blog today….because I just found his perfect Christmas gift for me! Yey!
I’m a voracious reader. My idea of a perfect day is when I have a good book, a mocha frappe, and a fine weather bundled all together. Whenever I travel, I always pack more books than shirts; it horrifies my mom. I always thought I can never ever travel light because of all the books I lug around, but then they invented the Amazon Kindle, a wireless reading device!
When I first saw the Amazon Kindle, I fell in love with its simplistic design. To us minimalists, less is always more. But hey, at only 10.3 ounces, I was surprised at what it can do. Its screen lets you read like you’re reading from a paper; it allows you to find, buy, and download reading materials from Amazon (books, magazines, newspapers, etc.) in less than 60 seconds; it can store 200 books more or less; and it gives you access to top blogs and the wikipedia any time of the day…even without Internet connection since it uses the same technology as that of a cell phone. What more can a bookworm ask for? Well, there’s something I wish they’ll add – a backlight, so I can read in the dark before I sleep. :)
If you want to see the Amazon Kindle for your self, here’s a short video:
