"Kindle Keyboard"

I bought the Kindle a little under a year ago because I happen to read a lot of books. To be honest I wasn't expecting much, as I hadn't heard much about it. However, I fell in love with it straight away.

The Kindle is fairly lightweight and fairly small so you can hold it in your hands for a long time. The buttons are big enough for you to be able to type without making mistakes. An amazing feature of this Kindle is that it can play music, either through headphones or through its inbuilt speaker. The only issue with this is that your music files must be in an mp3 format, however music files can be converted fairly easily. The speaker inside the Kindle reaches quite a high volume and the sound does not get distorted like it can on some speakers.

Another feature of the Kindle is that you can visit the Amazon Kindle store where you can purchase books. There are many free books, although in my opinion there are not many good free books. Another down side to the Kindle Store is sometimes when you go to buy a book on the Kindle, it is in fact cheaper to buy a print version. However, usually it is somewhat cheaper to buy a Kindle version. You can buy books pretty quickly when you have your account set up and what amazes me is how quickly these books appear on your Kindle. When you have your wifi connection switched on, the book you ordered downloads itself and it takes literally a few seconds. Books can also be purchased through the Kindle itself.

Overall, I think the Kindle Keyboard is fabulous. It offers everything you would expect and more from an e-reader. I have not had any problems whatsoever with the functionality of the Kindle. I believe that it is a must have for people that like to read a lot.
