Kindle DX

My wife has had a Kindle 2 since they first came out. I hemmed and hawed over getting a Kindle simply because I read a lot of magazines. I’d heard that many magazines were going to be available in Kindle format, but who really wants to read them on that small of a screen?

Well, I am still waiting for many of my favorite magazines to be available on the Kindle. However, I’ve found that the larger screen is great for PDF’s! Many books and reference materials are available in this format. Are you a student? Many textbooks can be purchased in PDF format for much less that the physical book.

I also use my Kindle DX for reading normal books as well. In low light areas you can enlarge the font and still have plenty of words on the screen. This is not something you would normally want to do on smaller screened book readers.

I love my Kindle DX and I would never go back. I do sometimes miss the feel of a paperback in my hands, but then I realize that I am holding several hundred books all at the same time (many of which were free!)
