The Saga of the Kindle wars!

In case you haven't noticed, the Amazon Kindle has lowered its price from $189 to $139.  This is because of the competition from Barnes and Nobles' Nook and other e-readers that are entering the market.  Well, the reason I am even talking about that here is because I got a Kindle for my birthday this year and I thought I would share my thoughts on this product here, in time for your Christmas shopping.

The kindle has many, many good points.  First it is very compact and lightweight.  Reading on the Kindle is very easy on both the eyes and the arms/hands.  You can carry your Kindle with you anywhere because it neatly fits in your purse or bag.  It's really easy to download books to the device.  And, in case you never watch television, you can easily read the Kindle in just about any bright light.

There are a few downsides to the Kindle, however.  First, the battery life is not what I would have expected.  Don't get me wrong, it has a fairly long life, but if you go a day or two between reads, you will need to recharge it first.  The Kindle doesn't get any blogs except for Amazon blogs, which sucks. 

But overall, I would have to give the Kindle a 9 out of 10 rating.

So, for your reader out there, you need to consider getting a Kindle for Christmas.  They will love you for it!
