The internet has transformed our lives over the past couple of decades. Whether it is shopping online, purchasing concert tickets instead of lining up a shopping mall or putting the latest information or entertainment at our fingertips 24/7.

One of the ways we are now afforded easier access to the things we love is E-Readers. These allow us to get the latest books and magazines on a device whenever we want and by far the leader in the market is the Amazon Kindle. Here are a few reasons why you should get one:

Ability to purchase books whenever and wherever you are:

Ever finished a book and been too busy to get to the store or library to get started on the next one? The Kindle completely removes that hassle by giving you the ability to purchase books wherever there is an internet connection (let’s be honest – that is everywhere these days).

Simply scroll the online store to find thousands upon thousands of books that are waiting to be read. This also allows you to buy books as soon as they’re released meaning you can start reading the latest highly anticipated book from your favorite author sooner.
  • Compact: Being super thin allows for you to quickly grab your Kindle and take it with you on the road. Instead of lugging a 500 page thick novel in the bottom of your bag, your Kindle will fit in a compact carrier and not weigh you down when you are on the move.
  • Perfect to read in bed or on the plane or bus: Kindle’s brightness setting makes reading a whole lot easier. If you like to read prior to bed you can flick the brightness up without lighting up the whole room and interrupting others. It can also be difficult to adjust your eyes to darker settings, like a bus or plane, so once again to can shift the settings and make sure you aren’t straining your eyes.
  • Inexpensive: Unlike many other electrical devices in our lives, the Kindle is not all that expensive considering what it offers and the time it might save you. The device is readily available at practically all electronics stores and of course online. The base models start at around $140 as this website discusses, while models with added features will cost you a little bit more. Just figure out what exactly you need in an E-Reader and off you go.

While many people like to feel the book in their hands while reading, the Kindle has no doubt provided an easier way to enjoy all the latest reads. So what are you waiting for getting out there and give yourself access to a greater reading experience already.
