they say that if you use an e-reader, it really shouldn't be back lit – hard on the eyes.
we have an iPad, and i have a traditional e-reader (not a kindle, but essentially the same thing) and i never read on my ipad, but i could. I use it for all kinds of other things.
Thanks girls! I have the original Kindle, but I enjoyed my i-Pad better for reading. I hate the way you have to tu the page on the old Kindle vs. the i-Pad. I had insurance on my i-Pad, so I guess I'll just get another one, but I will still consider any other comments…..
My husband wanted the Kindle fire HD for Christmas, and of course I have it to him. He totally loves it..Loves getting all the free books, and even more expensive priced ones you can get one free a month if you are a Amazon Prime member. Which he is. He swears that it's the best thing since sliced bread. As as for the older model..lol..he gave that one to me. And I use it all the time!
