However I am always interested in FREE stuff, and I jumped on this one, just downloaded the software, and it works just fine.
There are also a good number of Kindle books available online also for FREE. How good is that? I did a quick Google search and found a few resources which have links to Kindle books for free, and downloaded a copy of the Bible and it all worked just fine. The whole process took about 15 minutes to complete.
Like many people, I prefer to curl up with a good Book or Paperback and read for hours, and have done that for years. However my budget does not allow me to buy many of the books I would like to have, so free books are not a bad option until that changes. As well I have a 22" flat screen monitor now which makes reading online much easier.
I also think the Kindle product is an excellent option for the person who travels a lot, or for students, or even if you are in the kitchen, and want to try out a new recipe. There are all kinds of advantages to having Kindle, and the number of books available online will explode in time with the advancement of this technology.
Here is one resource for a list of free Kindle books, Kindle Kevin, Free Books To Read On Your Kindle 2.
After going to some of the links I chose Free Kindle Books from the list, and downloaded the Bible.
For those of you who want the real Kindle which is nice and small and portable for travel click on the Amazon link below.
Makes a great Christmas gift.
