Considering how we managed with our e-books of just seven years ago, I was mildly worried that the Kindle would not find itself used. I, of course, was mistaken in that worry. As Cora has noted, it is actually easier to read than a book. You don’t have to turn it to keep light on the page. If you are in a dim area, you just make the text bigger…and batteries? They last forever! Here it is getting used.
