Excellent for people with arthritis

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:lightweight; easy to use; sturdy and durable

Cons:many e-books have typos (an issue with the e-book, it affects the reading experience)

The Bottom Line: Excellent e-reader that is simple and intuitive to use; great for people with certain handicaps.


I have, from the very beginning, been against e-readers.  I have always loved holding a book in my hands and couldn't imagine doing otherwise. 

And then my husband bought me the kindle for a gift. 

I can't put it down!  The screen is easy to read and the kindle is so easy to navigate that I can't imagine anyone having any issues.  The extremely tech-savvy reader might be disappointed that it can't do more, but for a simple way to read books on the go it can't be beat.

My favorite feature - and I don't think that they do neary a good enough job of advertising this - is how lightweight the kindle is.  I have rheumetoid arthritis and struggle holding open and reading a book for much longer than about 20 minutes, especially if it is a dreaded hardcover.  The kindle does away with this struggle.  It doesn't tax my hands trying to hold a heavy book up or keep it open.  On particularly bad days, I would struggle to turn pages...clearly not a problem with the kindle.

For people with certain handicaps, the kindle has eased your reading experience and taken the pain out of something that should be painless.

The only drawback is that many e-books have typos.  This clearly affects your reading experience, although it is also the problem of the e-book, not the e-reader.  Issues are far more prevalent in books like romances than in histories or social reviews or even recent novels.
