The Kindle is futuristic and amazing! All you do, is buy the kindle off Amazon or anywhere else you can find it, like eBay, then buy the books you want and download them. Then itâ€™s all on the Kindle and you can flip pages and read over and over. You can also download your text books from school, and highlight important information for things like a history test. Then, you go look at all that you highlighted. I feel pretty special, because I was in Starbucks when someone was actually selling the Kindle to Amazon and I got to hear their conversation and actually see it before it came out on the market. The whole concept really fascinated me that you can read your books all from one place. It's even the size of a book, only 6 inches tall. The Kindle really is all that and I totally recommend you buy it, you can calculate all the costs, but my thought would be that if you like to buy a lot of books, this would eventually be cheaper. It's up to you but this thing IS amazing!
