The Kindle also may be even easier on their eyes, with adjustable text sizing, fonts, and layouts, plus a warm light setting so their eyes never hurt from reading (and their circadian rhythm won’t get thrown off before bed). Its charge lasts weeks (plural!), and since it’s waterproof, they can take it in the bathtub or pool.
As a previously longtime skeptic of e-reading, I finally decided to buy a Kindle — and it has, no exaggeration, revolutionized my life. I love mine for so many reasons — it’s truly helped me incorporate my love of reading into my often hectic life, and all my titles literally live inside of this half-pound wonder gadget, so I can switch between books super easily. I only wish I hadn’t waited so long to take the plunge. BTW, I’m also obsessed with the Libby app, which allows you to check out e-books from your local library on your Kindle!
Promising review: “By far, the best Kindle e-book reader! Our family has had many of the Kindle readers over the years starting with the first edition. This one with the larger reading screen, whiter clearer imaging, and a great deal faster is just lovely! I have purchased two as gifts, one for my wife, and I’m still with the 6-inch previous model Paperwhite, hoping someone gives me of these soon! In my opinion, this is truly a Paperwhite that feels like a good book and reads far better than any soft cover novel could offer.” —Kindle Customer
