Kindle Paperwhite E-Reader (Previous Generation – 7th)

So, you are one of those people who loves the feel of a book in your hand. I love physical books too but I still prefer to hold a Kindle.  It’s light and easy to hold. You can turn a page with one hand. If you drop it while turning over in bed, you don’t lose your place. It will fit easily in a purse, gym bag or brief case. You can take hundreds of books with you.  If you happen to forget to take it with you, you can still read with the app on your phone or IPad. If you are like me, you will be able to read faster. You will never regret putting the books down and picking up a Kindle. 

Fire 7 Kids Edition Tablet

Comes in Blue, Pink and Yellow

This is a great toy and real tablet all in one. It is basically a real Fire 7 tablet, with a kid’s built-in entertainment center. There are 2 modes on the tablet: Parent (admin) and Kids. You can have one or multiple accounts. When in Parent mode, which is password protected, the Fire 7 looks and feels just like an Android tablet with all of the Fire 7 functionality. It can have Facebook, Netflix, Books and all the rest, so all of us Android users feel right at home. In the Parent mode you can also manage kids accounts: how much they can use the tablet per day, what they can and cannot watch/play, manage their installed apps, etc. When in kid’s mode, the tablet behaves just like it is on the pictures, easy-to-use, colorful interface. You need to click switch user to switch from Parent to Kids accounts.

The kids apps are not pre-installed; the main interface is an app store, just like Google Play, etc. The apps here are unique to this Kids Account, and are all free with the included subscription; which includes a boat load of games, Amazon Videos, reading and audio books. You still have to download each app before using it, so make sure to stock up on apps before going on a road trip.

Fire HD 8 Tablet

‏Fire Kindle

Awhile back I told you I had won a Fire 7 in a giveaway by one of my favorite authors.  What I said at the time still applies today. The one in picture is a Fire 8. I still have my original older Kindle with a keyboard and iPad Mini. I like reading on the first Kindle but it required a light after the sun goes down. After I got the iPad I kept trying to swipe the page on the Kindle. I liked reading on the iPad but it hurts my eyes after a while. The Fire 8 solves all the problems.

The Fire is not as wide as the iPad mini which makes it easier to hold and it doesn’t hurt my eyes.  I haven’t looked at all you can get but it seems to have almost every thing the iPad has.I really like it better for reading. I said for reading because you can also get apps for games and social media.

It is also cheaper than an iPad. The Fire is perfect for reading and you can get apps also. The iPad will do more but if you are more interested in reading this is the way to go.

I still have my first Kindle with the key board. It still works great after all these years and stores more books than I can count. It is still on standby for an all night can’t put this book down session.

If you are looking for a reader the Kindle HD 8 is the way to go.
