Sometimes I wonder if we will still be using books! There is a new way to read books, and it is called the Kindle. The Kindle can be used to download books (at a great price) that can be read on a high-tech advanced screen.
The downside is that the Kindle doesn’t have the characteristics a book has. With a book, you can hold and turn the pages, where as a Kindle is a mini computer that has a button to turn pages.
I think the Kindle is a great idea that will excel more as time goes by just like iPods are! I bet there were a lot of arguments when companies came out with the iPod because they didn’t work like CDs. But look at how much the iPods have improved and become one of the most popular ways to listen to music.
Kindles will become a popular tool that not only saves trees (by not using paper), but saves space too. it would save space because it is a mini-computer, so you wouldn’t have to lug around books for classes.
