What is A Kindle Book Reader?

If you stay up to date with your technology, or perhaps even if you don't. It is likely that you will have heard of Amazon's Kindle products. But, that may have sparked the question "What is a Kindle Book Reader?" Well, ponder that no more! This Amazon product allows users to download and browse, e-books, newspapers, magazines, and other kinds of e-media. It is similar in appearance to other tablets, such as the Ipad, and there have been multiple Kindle models released. But, obviously, this is modern technology, there is more to it than that. So, what exactly can you do with a Kindle?


Kindle Books are purchased from Amazon, you can get paid, or free E-books, and download them straight on to your Kindle. It uses an E-Ink electronic display, that allows you to read the words off of the tablet, much like reading ink off of a page.

You can also browse the Internet on it, view social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. Once you have linked and authenticated your Facebook and Twitter accounts with the Kindle, you can select any text and then press alt and enter, boom, you have shared it to your followers on those sites! You can even customize the text that goes with that share.

When browsing the internet you will come across quite a few article sites, such as newspaper websites. It is understandable for a user to want to view these sites without the banners and menus, that, while normally fine on a computer, can get in the way a lot on the tablet. Luckily, Amazon thought of that, and included a useful little feature known as "Article Mode". This mode allows you to read the article as if reading a book, without the distractions.

This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the amount of things you can do on this brilliant piece of technology! Even though it is of course, mainly for reading, do not think that is all you can do. You can play games, watch movies and videos, translate languages and a lot more, I bought one myself and believe it to bea fantastic investment, and if you get the most out of all of its features, using tip such as the ones here, I think you would agree.


Along with their different models, Amazon also released a number of accessories to go with their device. Add to this a number of fan made accessories, you are looking at wide range of different products on offer, with new customers having no idea where to go first, or if they are worth it at all. With different models, there also comes different accessories. Such as Kindle Fire accessories, or Kindle Touch accessories, which makes for an even more confusing shopping experience for the first time buyer. My personal recommendation for buying accessories, would be to take a look around at the Amazon reviews, and search for other reviews on Google. Pick up a nice case to keep your Kindle safe, a charger for the car perhaps, and maybe a skin if you feel that boring graphite color needs brightening up.

To get the most out of your Kindle, you really need to use it to its maximum capacity, this includes taking look at things like different apps, and features on your model. As well as finding accessories for your Kindle that will fit with the things you will be using it for most. Good luck, and happy reading!
