Why You Should Upgrade to A Kindle 2

In case you are in the process of doing some research as to which e-reader you would like to buy in order to start reading your ebooks and reading them on the go, it's normal to be daunted by all the choices out there and even more so if you are working with a limited budget. If you would like to purchase the Kindle 2, you will need a credit card for purchase of the device itself as well as to buy the Amazon Kindle books once you have your Kindle reading device.

The Kindle is a great reading device for those who love to read with a reduced bulk and even more so for those people who love to travel light. The Kindle DX is a bit heavier than the Kindle 2 if you may have noticed. This is why you should upgrade to the Kindle 2. With the Kindle you will have a much smaller reading device, especially noticeable if you happen to be using the Kindle DX otherwise known as the first released version of the Kindle reading device.

All you will need in order to replace your old Kindle and perhaps upgrade to a Kindle 2 are the following:

1. Just open your web browsers and go over to Amzaon, Craigslist e.t.c are great places to also start looking if you would like to purchase a used Kindle reading device. Although the Kindle 3 has replaced the Kindle 2, the later version (the Kindle 2) makes for a great purchase because of the many used units that can now be found in great condition and for sale.

2. Input your search as the ''Kindle 2'' whether you are on Craiglist or any other classifieds website. Also remember to restrict the area you search by geographic location. With eBay, you can also further filter your search by auction type, location as well as by price range.

3. Review all your options and make sure that you are purchasing from a reputable person. Electronics sold by individuals can at times be troublesome if you do not make sure of the quality. If you are purchasing from sites such as Craigslist, you need to use all caution and never ever send money without receiving the item first.

4. After you have received your Kindle 2, you have all the freedom to start using the Kindle book store and download the books you want from your other Kindle and now onto the Kindle 2. You should also know that you can download your books from your other Kindle right onto your Kindle 2 once it arrives.

The Kindle features includes a great storage space as well as an easy to use keyboard and lean and thin design. If you are wondering how hard it is to upgrade to the Kindle 2, you have no need to worry it's simple, all you really need to do is give a little touch over to the Amazon website and purchase the Kindle ereader ! You also have options once you get to Amazon as to whether you would like to buy the Kindle brand new or depending on your budget, you can also buy a used Kindle 2 or buy a refurbished Kindle as well.

Hi Kyle, Thanks =) I have the Kindle 2, I love reading especially in the summer, or in those cold rainy days or dark winter days. I was thinking I should upgrade to an iPad 2 some time this year, since I take lots of photos and I could use it to read magazines, watch movies etc.. things you can't really do on the Kindle. You're right when you say that the Kindle is waaaay better if you want to read novels it definitely beats the iPad in novel and ebook reading department.

Yeah, the only drawback to the iPad and it is a fairly significant one, is that you cannot use flash. Many websites are created in pure flash, and there are tons of flash videos that you can't view out there simply because you own an iPad. If I were to go back, I may have chosen an Android tablet as it works very well for much of the day to day business stuff (Google applications, docs, talk), and there really are no constraints on technology. I have considered getting a Kindle 2 for traveling, but personally I am still a hard cover book. I like to create my library and I just like the feel of reading a book...it gives off a weird sense of accomplishment.

Great information! Although I don't have a Kindle or a Kindle 2, my parents have Kindle 2 and they haven't put it down since they got it. I am an iPad 2 guy myself. It is a bit more functional than a kindle but is far too glossy to read often on. Definitely prefer the Kindle digital ink for reading novels.
