Here’s how I decided to get the latest Kindle incarnation and how it works for me.
First, let me tell you that I love paperbacks. I love their smell, I love turning the pages, making line marks or notes in the margins. And I’m a fan of bookstores, of this whole serendipity thing that everyone talks about. You enter there to browse or buy one book, and leave with that book and two others.
It works about the same way with Kindle. The Kindle Store, easily accessible from the top menu bar, has Daily Deals, Monthly Deals, books Recommended for You, Bestsellers, and so on. Or so I remember. I don’t have a wireless network at home and can’t access the Kindle Store. Which, I found, is a good thing. I check Daily Deals on Amazon now and then though, because I found some classics at $1.99 and now I’m hooked.
