Most women like to think of themselves as a real-life version of Carrie Bradshaw. A fabulous woman with a budding career, a love for fashion, and the most extraordinary group of friends you will ever meet. I am one of these women. In fact, I have boosted my own relation to this marvelous fictional character by adding my passion for writing. However, nothing made me more like Ms. Bradshaw then when she told Big that she still rents library books because she loves the feel and smell of them. This was my defining moment.
I have always been a fan of books. From my early years of Sweet Valley High to my matured love of authors such as Augusten Burroughs, books have been a constant in my life. There is just a good feeling that comes with holding a book in your hands and loosing yourself within the story. Over the past few years, technology has changed our society in the most epic ways, especially in the world of literature. It is almost old news that you can get piratically any book or magazine on a electronic format. Hell, you can now download an app and have a voice read the story to you! Call me what you will, but I have rebelled against this virtual form of literature and continue to hold onto the spine of a book and flip through the pages of a glossy magazine. That is, until now.
My parents gifted me the first generation Kindle years ago and while I used it often enough, it was winning (that’s right….big winner right here) the new Fire HD6 version that has me slowly converting to the world of virtual books. The Fire HD6 truly is a full fledged tablet which may be why I revert to it more often as a source for reading. I can browse my favorite blogs, spend hours on Pinterest, and listen to music on Pandora all at the same time. Another great aspect with the Kindle (regardless of what version you get) is the ease of having it synced to your personal Amazon account. It allows downloading of books and magazines seamless as well as any other Amazon purchases you want to make.
While I will always love and revert to the original form of a book, I have to say that the Fire HD6 has converted me into a tech-reading fan. Overall I would definitely recommend this as a get addition for all my fellow nerds.
