I bought a kindle and now have a kindle fire - still use both. Bought the first when I was starting to downsize and move. Just no room for all my books. I like the kindle because for downloading books they have their own network. One of my friends just bought a nook and you have to have wifi to download.

I have kindle.....bought when several hundreds $, but loved the large print feature which ment I could read without glasses while on the treadmill......then could easily walk 60 minutes or more after I retired and hurt my knee and could no longer walk in the wilderness'Today I would buy the kindle fire for less than $200

I have a Sony eReader. I got it in 2010 because it was in my price range (i.e. cheap compared to the Kindle which was still several hundred $$ at that time, right before they started dropping the prices).

It works OK for what it is but doesn't have all the bells & whistles - no light for when it is dark, no color, possibly doesn't support magazines (never tried but I doubt it would), etc. I'll keep using it while it works but I wouldn't recommend it unless you're OK with bare bones cheap.

I have a Kindle App on my tablet. i've gotten free online books. they were handy when i traveled because i did not need to bring in several books- just my device and the power cord.

even if you use a library e book it sends you to amazon.

when you use amazon just click on the book to make sure it is still free. it will be highlighted. generally when there is a price it will be shown. my library had a nook and after they showed me how to use it (5 minutes) it was easy. i chose kindle because i know people who have one. if you buy a nook from barnes and nobles i am sure they will help you.

If you have a Kindle, must you only download from Amazon or can you get books from other places?

Sorry for so many questions, but I finally earned an e-reader and I don't know what kind to get. Thanks for the advice!

Another reason I chose Kindle is I can borrow kindle books from my local library for free.

Hi,
Please share why you decided to go with Kindle over another e-reader.

Thanks,

Mari
