kindle


KINDLE:
 
My friend Glenda gave me a gift card to amazon for Christmas this year. I had never ordered all by myself from amazon. The first time I used some of the gift card I ended up buying a book for 12.99 (LOL) but by the second go round I learned to check the prices. I know this isn't hard but the first time I was soooo thrilled to be able to learn all of this by myself. Anyway my question today is...
"Do you read more books on your ereaders than in paper?" I know I read faster by kindle than by paperback or even hardback (even though I usually read large print books) but for the kindle is a godsend for my eyes.
"How many books does your kindle hold and do you knowv how to delete books that you want to delete?"
 
Anyway I want to talk about ebooks today. Authors do you write ebooks and is there a difference in how long it takes you to publish an ebook?
I find this is a  whole new world to me that I am excited about exploring.
 
Hugs,
Pamela

  1. Hi Pamela,yes, I'm reading more books on my Kindle. I think having the larger font size helps. I don't know how many my Kindle holds. You need to delete the book for your Amazon list first. Go to Amazon, click on Department on left, click on Kindle and then click on Manage your Kindle and your list of books is there. Click on the right for the book you want to delete and choose that choice. Then go to your Kindle, have WiFi turned on for your kindle. Wait a little bit, maybe 5 minutes. Find the book you want to delete, press firmly on the book name and a list of choices comes up. Choose delete. Then a screen comes up asking if you're sure and choose delete.

  2. I have a Nook, not a Kindle but I can answer one of your questions. I still much prefer a printed book over an e-book. The only books I read on my Nook are ones I want to read but can't get in print.

  3. I do enjoy the larger font size. ANd I love the lightness and easiness for carrying on subway etc... But there certainly is something to be said for paper for comfort (esp. snuggling under a blanket with a cup of tea

    1. I agree on the printed books being great for comfort reading. However I LOVE my kindle for how easy it is to read from and I understand most readers do not have eyesight issues.

  4. I have a nook, a kindle and an ipad..what can I see, I'm a electronics geek. I do find that I read faster on my e-reader.

    The kindle holds up to 3500 books and I think the nook is the same.

    to delete books permanently off your ereader, you have to delete them from B&N/Amazon website.

    I still read books in print, mostly hardcovers.
