Do you need an ipad or kindle?
I love reading books. I honestly can’t get enough books, I am always looking for new books, and amazon orders are constantly coming in. I have finally set up a budget for my books for personal and for work. I think this can be a helpful think.
While I was on holidays a few weeks ago, I noticed a lot of people with ipads and with kindles. Now, I don’t really need either but I think that owning one would be practical. I talked to a man who was living in the condo that my family was staying at and he had both the ipad and kindle. Initially, I thought he was crazy for having two devices. He said that if he wanted to read a magazine, or surf the web he would use the ipad, if he wanted to read a book he would use the kindle. This really got me thinking. So, below I came up with a list of things each one could do.
- Can surf the web.
- You can email with it.
- You can watch videos on it in full hd retina display.
- Play games
- It is light
- It can store up to 3,500 books
- It can read pdf’s
Looking at both devices side by side is not fair. The price point between the two is almost $400 dollars. Micahel Hyatt does a great job breaking the differences down here. In the near future I will purchase an Amazon Kindle. I love reading, and I enjoy reading a ton of paperback fiction. A lot of these books are throw aways after. Having a Kindle would give me a way of storing them digitally for later. To be honest it is also the price. I can afford the Kindle.
Do you use an e-Reader? If so, which one and why?
