If you’re reading this, you have likely heard about the Kindle. For those who have not, Kindle is an electronic device that allows you to carry your library around with you. Think of it as an MP3 player for books. This is certainly a very neat gadget, and can be very useful, but is it better than the book? If so, it will replace the eBook?
First, let’s start with the book.
This book can be very portable, and will last for a long time. They do not require batteries. And while paper made from trees, they always can be made from recycled paper products. If it is damaged, it’s pretty easy to fix if you have a roll of tape on hand. They also can be read and easy on the eyes, depending on the size of print of course.
At the same time, however, the book can be very large and heavy, and can be damaged very easily. They are also quite expensive if you get one of the larger book, or a hardcover. They always need a light source as well. However, these light sources can not be too hot or too close, or paper can capture down.
Kindle brings to the table what you might be wondering?
It is much lighter than the average hardcover and soft cover most. It is able to store 1,500 books. You can carry a very large library anywhere you want. With the purchase of digital books they are much cheaper because you do not pay for the printing process. Unlike the book, if you find the print too small, can be changed with a few clicks. Forget going to the store, computer, or Internet cafe. Instead, just turn on the Kindle and you can get the books right download for you. Unlike a computer, the Kindle does not use a backlight which helps battery life. Finally, it has the function of text-to-speech for those times when an audio book is a better choice.
On the downside, it still has the battery life. This will eventually have to be recharged, which would require cable and various gadgets are easily lost. While designers have certainly done their best to make it durable, it is still plastic and metal. It can still be broken. It will also react very badly to any water, such as rain, or a spilled cup of coffee. The designers make it thin enough to allow it to fit in more places. The downside is that for some it will be too small, and uncomfortable. The device itself is also quite expensive. You should become a loyal reader for it to save money. If the device is damaged, it will be quite expensive to fix. This screen is also quite small. This is much smaller than regular books, and colorless. Finally, it has no taste or simple majesty of the novel.
