I have always said I did not want a Kindle. I am an avid reader and I have always said I prefer books.  During the past two years I have spent a small fortune on paperback books from Amazon and Amazon.mx  I think the time has come to consider a Kindle. So, I am thinking of buying a Kindle but I have no idea what model to buy. I would like to hear from you Kindle readers on your recommendations.  I do not want anything fancy.  Just something reliable, easy to read, etc.

Thanks to all of you who recommended the Kindle Paperwhite.  That's what I will buy.  My next question when I buy it will be how do I get the book(s)  into my Kindle?  I am sure the instructions are clear on that.

 

Yes, the instructions are clear and the process, even with crappy Telmex download speeds, takes seconds.

May I recommend looking into Kindle Unlimited. For $9.99/month you have access to enough free books to keep you reading 24/7/365. We're both big readers (different genres) and we are never at a loss for good reading material. If I read the first chapter and it is clear I don't like the writer's style or the subject matter I simply return the book. I think you can check-out up to 24 books at a time. We have learned to keep our Kindles loaded for those times when Telmex is down.

Can I see the book selection without signing up...I want to see what they have before signing up...

Sure just go to Amazon.com pick books and then select all, then select books, Kindle. they will show deals then you you can search titles.

BTW, there are a lot of free books available on Amazon to download (within seconds) to your Kindle. I much preferred a paper book over an E reader, but after having made the switch years ago, my only regret is I didn't do it sooner. There are many advantages to a Kindle over a paper version of the book; which you will learn as you use it. I will move up to the Paperwhite when my ancient Kindle decides to quit.
