I am going to tell you a short story… I hated and couldn’t read on digital for some weird reason… I was unable to concentrate when I was trying to read on my phone… so I refused so badly for so long to read on my phone or any tablet. It just did not feel the same…
However, everything changed. I bought a Kindle Fire. Great value, small device, and with one purpose only: reading, and I thought this was it! I was going to finally be able to read… and guess what? It did not happen…
Then thanks to my amazing job, I had the chance to work with digital books, and I had to read books on digital devices… so I was literally forced to read… and there is where everything changed: I learned to love and read on digital books. I had to use a Kindle Device, and I finally realized what I was missing. Oh god! How incomplete my life was! I thought the problem was that I was reading really bad books, so I thought I was blaming the ebook instead of the story per se.
While working, I got to learn all the features that a Kindle and its ebooks have, and I felt so silly for not being able to see this gold pod that I had in my hands. I even found the use of those features for school! I discovered what had been discovered already!
- I like the dictionary feature. Tap and hold on to the word and you will get the definition, the Wiki information of that word, and even a translation.
- Then we moved to Word Wise. Oh, sweet baby Jesus! The fact that you can read and see the definition under a word make everything easier. No roadblocks, no time-consuming processes. Built up your vocabulary!
- We then have XRay so you can find all the instances where the characters are mentioned.
- The notes and the highlights! This saved my life in school. I read; I highlighted; I annotated; and then when the essay came, I had the pages, the ideas, and the quotes, and was so easy to navigate.
- The chapters in the menu, the freedom to make the font bigger and bolder.
- Change the background color to help you with the brightness of it, making it easier for you to read. The new navigation interface allows you to go within pages and then go back to where you were.
All of those features are wonderful. I have used and tried those only, but I am happy that I was finally able to enjoy the digital reading, features, and the commodity of having all my books with me at all times! I am a mood reader so sometimes I feel like reading something else that the book I have with me…
I hope you can get your own Kindle Device and also some ebooks! Give a try to this amazing digital world! Keep reading and never stop!
