Buying the Amazon Kindle

By purchasing a Kindle, you are giving yourself or someone else the gift of pleasurable reading. With the Kindle you can carry an entire, vast personal library in your purse or briefcase and take it anywhere. With Amazon's wireless network, you can download books you've stored online. You can also buy more books, magazines, and newspapers, anytime and virtually anywhere, usually in less than one minute.

Top Ebook Reader
The Kindle is the top ebook reader available on the market. A truly amazing device, the Kindle has revolutionized the way we read, pick up information, and keep up with current events. The Kindle has put Amazon at the front of the ebook reader market and the company is continually investing in additional upgrades to the device.
The latest version of the Kindle can store up to 2,500 books and magazines. And if you have even more, you can store them in your personalized space online and download them anytime. And the long-lasting battery allows you to use the device for up to a week on a single charge, even with the wireless activated. With over 950,000 books, magazines, and audio books to choose from, there's something to suit most any interest. You also have access to over a million out of print books, major newspapers, and blogs.

Easy to Hold, Easy to Read
The Kindle's compact size belies its powerful capabilities. The device is thinner than a typical magazine and weighs about half a pound. You can easily hold it in one hand without straining. The control buttons are arranged on both sides of the display for maximum flexibility. The Kindle will automatically connect to a wireless network if available. But it can also use Amazon's Whispernet wifi network to access online resources from nearly anywhere.
If you're expecting eyestrain after several hours of reading an ebook, you're in for a pleasant surprise. The Kindle has a real ink display that looks very much like a printed page. Many people are amazed the first time they view the Kindle's eInk display screen. The print is clear and sharp because the Kindle reader uses electronic ink to achieve the same effect as ink on paper. Unlike LCD displays used in other readers, the Kindle's screen is non-glare and will not wash out even in direct sunlight. You can enjoy reading in virtually any lighting condition.

Where to Buy the Kindle
The Kindle is available online at, and can also be purchased at a number of retail stores. The retailers that carry the Kindle in-store include AT&T, Best Buy, Radio Shack, Target, and WalMart. Amazon maintains an updated list of Kindle retailers and their contact information. To find it on the Amazon site, click the Help link at the far right, and type "Shopping for Kindle in Retail Stores" in the Search Help box.
Based on comments posted in Kindle buyer forums, however, the majority of people prefer to buy directly through Amazon. Shopping at Amazon offers definite advantages, such as:
  • Amazon has the best and most complete information about each Kindle model
  • Amazon carries a full line of Kindles and accessories - most stores will have a limited selection
  • Your Kindle is preregistered to your Amazon account, saving you the time and effort of doing this yourself
  • You save on sales tax
  • You save time and gas from driving to the store and back
  • Your Kindle is backed by Amazon's outstanding customer service and return policy
Shopping in a store does offer a couple of advantages:
  • You get the instant gratification of getting a Kindle immediately, instead of waiting 2-3 days
  • You can see and feel the product before you buy - this may be useful if you haven't tried out a Kindle before
Regardless of where you get it, you'll see why the Kindle is one of the most popular ebook readers on the market and Amazon's bestselling item. Although similar products are available, the combination of mature, innovative technology, a vast selection of reading materials, and Amazon's customer service makes the Kindle hard to beat. If you ever had a passion for reading and learning, you can discover it again with this device.
