Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
The theme at The Broke and the Bookish this week is the Top Ten Reasons I love X. I thought of all things reading that I love and quickly realized that one on the things I love most is my Kindle! So without further ado, here are ten reasons that I love my Kindle.
I like reading all types of books, and the amazing thing about reading them on my Kindle is (1)my book always fits in my purse. I could be reading a hardcover copy of George RR Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series, it will still fit in my purse. In fact, (2)when I am carrying my Kindle, I have a whole library in my purse. Can you believe that? It still amazes me, every day.
While I am reading, the Kindle has many advantages. I really love that (3)I can get instant definitions if I don't understand, or want more information about, a word. I am fascinated by words. I also love (4)highlighting my favorite quotes and phrases in a book. My Kindle allows me to do this without damaging the book in any way. Also, I can (5)bookmark a page without ever damaging the book or having to remember where the heck I put my bookmark. I am forever losing bookmarks!
Another thing I love about my Kindle is the great deals I can get on books. First, (6)I love my e-library!! I can choose from a wide selection of books. I can have multiple books on hold and checked out at the same time. And the best part of all, they automatically take the books back at the end of the lending period, so (7)no more late fees! Add to that (8)the deals I get through Amazon Prime. I get to borrow one book each month and with Kindle First, I now get to purchase a free book each month before it is released.
When I am out in public, the Kindle allows me some anonymity because (9)nobody knows what I am reading! So I can read something embarrassing without anyone knowing ;)
Of course the last reason I love my Kindle has nothing to do with reading. I really do love (10)the apps I can get on my Kindle. They keep me occupied between reads.
By the way, I am not affiliated with Amazon. I just really love my Kindle :)
