What No One Knows About Books

The New World of Amazon Kindle It was but a few years ago when the Amazon Kindle came into the scene quietly, but after some time, e-readers are getting to be popular as a must-have in the world of cool tech gadgets and electronics. As a comparison, the Kindle is to books while MP3 player is to music. Imagine electronic readers compiling the best of books and computers and combine them together to obtain a hand held book reader called the Kindle. But still, tried and true book lovers consider the old-fashioned method of reading books rather than having a small electronic reader. On the positive side, the Kindle has slowly gaining grounds in turning old-fashioned book worms into die-hards e-reader fans. Book lovers are starting to accept the convenience of an e-reader, although with still a little question mark on their faces, because they realize that for example if they are travelling, they do not need to bring a suitcase of books but instead just have a small gadget on hand. It would be great to imagine that wherever you travel and at any time, you can read any book you like at the mere touch of a button. The idea of replacing the textbooks in schools with this gadget is already floating, and in fact currently, a high school in Florida is now trying the Kindle with their students and is being received positively. Another company produced its own version called the Nook and is the closest competition of the Kindle with having similarity in their features. The costs of both are very competitive, but there are some differences that could make you decide of your choice.
