New Kindle…meh.

When I first heard rumors that Amazon was releasing a new Kindle I was annoyed because I had JUST gotten my long awaited Kindle 2 and was appalled to think that Amazon would dare introduce a new version so soon just to spite me! I was tormented with stories of touch screens, color screens, and  pretty much every imaginable feature short of shipping Jeff Bezos to read to you himself. http://www.manara.ca/wp-content/plugins/wp-o-matic/cache/7d934_kindle.jpg

So you can imagine my surprise when I found out the Kindle DX was just…bigger? Meh. I was puzzled. This was the new version? Lame. You can’t even fit it in your purse like my sweet and thin Kindle 2! Thanks, but no thanks.  Apparently I’m not the only one who thought it was a little ridiculous.

For the record, I love, love, LOVE my Kindle. It is one of the best purchases I have ever made. As a frequent travel and rabid reader I cannot imagine going back to physical books ever again. Honestly, the fact that I can load up my Kindle with 1500 books guarantees I am endlessly entertained on plane rides where the only alternative is the horror that is “Inkheart.” It saved my sanity! It does have some drawbacks which I’m currently covering in a review video I am making and will post soon so stay tuned!

In the meantime, check out this trailer for Inkheart. I rest my case.
