Gadget Review: Amazon Kindle

If you are looking for a great birthday or Christmas gift, all of the top affiliate programs agree that the Amazon Kindle is a great present to give to someone. The Amazon Kindle is an eReader that holds thousands of books at a time.

The Amazon Kindle is a lightweight gadget that is portable and able to be taken anywhere on the go. The best reason to have one of these devices is for use on vacations. You can load up your Kindle with as many books as you want and away you go. Instant reading for your whole vacation.

The Kindle comes with Wifi access and is great for downloading books even when you are not at home. However, some books on Amazon can get pretty pricey, so if you like to read all the new releases that come out, be prepared for some books on the Kindle being more expensive than the paperback version.

That being said, the best thing about the Kindle is the instant access you get to books. With one click of your mouse, you can start reading your new book on the Kindle in less than a minute. When not in use, you can either shut down the Kindle or it automatically goes into screensaver mode, where it displays impressive screensavers of classic authors.

For older people that have trouble seeing small print, the Kindle text adjusts to about five different sizes. While there is no backlight for reading in the dark, you can buy a Kindle case that comes with a booklight.

The Kindle is perfect for reading out in the sunlight while relaxing on the beach. There is no glare on the screen and the text doesn't fade from sitting out in the sun. It is definitely the popular gift to give this season.
