Simply amazing! More than a million books in the palm of your hand!
WOW is all I can say!
This is most definitely the way of the future.
Around every corner you see a kid walking with a phone in hand. And you get cross, what a waste of time!
But wait, this kid is busy reading a work of Shakespeare on his Kindle app!
WHAT? REALLY? Yes, really!
Today it is possible, thanks to a free Kindle reading app from Amazon to read more than a million books on your smartphone, tablet or computer! Goodness.
Schools don’t need libraries, or do they? You download a free kindle app on a tablet, You download a free (or maybe not) e-book and the child has the book in his hands to read as he desire, when he desire, where he desire as often as he desire!
You can make fonts larger and smaller to fit the eyes of young and old. It keeps the last page where you were reading for you!
Of course, as with anything, there are drawbacks too. You cannot read in the rain! But even books don’t like that too much.
The cost? The reading app is for free! Cannot get cheaper than that! And it runs on your current smartphone, tablet or PC. Can’t get cheaper than that either!

Comparing the book of Helen Zille Not Without A Fight – The Autobiography at Loot (wish it was me – see the link on this page) you can get it at time of writing for R250 and on Kindle store for $13.67 that is about R189 So you can save a cool R60 by downloading the free Kindle reader and buying the electronic version of the book.
Interestingly enough, once you downloaded it, you can read it on your PC, continue reading on holiday on your phone, and then continue where you left off on your PC at home again. Kindle reader keeps track of where you are! Golly me, amazing.
