Today’s advanced technology has equipped mankind with all sorts of gadgets and gizmos that make life just a little bit easier. Kindle is one such great technological advancement that makes life easier for students as well as a vast majority of people who love reading books.
Kindle is an electronic book reader that allows users to purchase and download various books of different genres in as little as a few minutes, depending on the virtual size of the file.
There are various sizes of Kindle available these days. Kindles with a six-inch diagonal display screen measures approximately 7.5 inches in length by 4.8 inches in width by 0.335 inch in height.
Kindles with these dimensions weigh between 8.5 and 8.7 ounces.
A bigger version of Kindle is now also available. Kindle DX has a 9.7-inch diagonal display screen and measures about 10.4 inches in length by 7.2 inches in width by 0.38 inch in height.
This Kindle size weighs approximately 18.9 ounces.
Kindle dimensions are compact so much so that you can easily carry this e-book reader around wherever you go. Its compact size however, does not limit your soft copies of books to just two to three books at a time.
As a matter of fact, you not only get to load a few hundred books at a time; you get to load a few thousand books – about three thousand and five hundred of them.
What this means is that you can have your own library of your favorite books as well as a few other books for school or work right within a single, compact and portable digital device.
Other than the capacity to store more than three thousand electronic books at a time, Kindle units come with special features that make reading even more enjoyable.
For instance, if you would like the book to be read out to you, there is a special feature in Kindle units that can convert the books from text to speech.
So whether you want to read together with the Kindle or you simply want to listen to the book being read out loud to you as you rest in bed, you can use the Text-to-Speech feature to activate this option.
On the other hand, if you would like to download audio books instead of text books, the Kindle can also handle and manage audio book formats which means that your book options are not limited to the text versions only.
