Do you have a Kindle/Nook? - Page 6
I understand this is a waayy old thread, but figure other kindle folks can chime in. I've never held an e reader of any kind and am pretty clueless!
I'm looking at the cheap $60 version.
Do you need a light to read a kindle in the dark? Does it do anything other than hold books? Text to speech with every book?
With built in wifi does that it can access the www? So you can do anything on it you could do on your a smart phone?
My need is this- traveling for 7 weeks with children. One is a reader who flies through easy books, about 8-10 a week. I'm not traveling 5000 miles with 70 books! Local libraries don't let you check out without a local address. Downloading from our home library is free and we can be anywhere. I think the cost of a kindle might be equal to the cost of buying so many books (used) and can be used for audio books (I think?) and for online fun stuff (maybe?)
Thanks for helping the technology challenged!
Before you buy, check with your library to be sure they lend books in the mobi format. My library only has books in epub format, which you can NOT read on a Kindle. That's why I prefer my Nook -- it's much easier to find books as epubs than to find Amazon's proprietary Kindle-only mobi format.
