I discovered reading again!

pile of booksI’m back after an extended time away due to health problems. After finally getting needed treatment, I’m thankful to be feeling better! I’ll write about that another time, but now I want to share something that helped get me through the long waits in doctor’s offices and the days at home when I was not able to get out of the house.

I purchased a Kindle Wireless Reading Device, Free 3G, 6″ Display, White, 3G Works Globally – Latest Generation last fall. With my Kindle, I can enlarge the print, or turn on the text-to-print feature. The reader is non-glare, and easy on the eyes, and I discovered reading again!

I was excited when I read through an entire book, a feat I’d not accomplished in many years! I read Son of Hamas in intervals while riding the Trinity Railway Express from Ft. Worth to my doctor’s office in Dallas, sitting in waiting rooms, or resting in my favorite chair at home.

Long waits don’t bother me now. My 6″ diagonal wireless Kindle fits nicely into a leather cover, and it is easy to take along. Now I can carry a whole library of books with me. When I purchased my Kindle, there was no way to organize the books. The latest free update added the ability to create categories and add books to them, making the library even more useful and easy to use.

I’ve been eying the larger Kindle DX Wireless Reading Device, Free 3G, 9.7″ Display, Graphite, 3G Works Globally – Latest Generation for a long time, though! Seems it would be even easier to focus with it, and it syncs easily with the smaller Kindle. I could grab the small one when heading out the door, and enjoy the ease of reading the larger version at home. Kindle has just lowered the price on the newest Kindle DX, which is scheduled to be released on July 7 and is available for pre-order now. I’ve just added it to my wish list.

I’ll share the rest of my health story as soon as I can, but I wanted share this first, because it may be that a Kindle Reader can give you freedom to read again also.
