Valentine’s Day Gift Idea: Amazon’s Kindle

by Lisa on February 4th, 2010

Amazon logoAs much as it pains me to ask this, do y’all foresee a time in the {hopefully} far-off future when all reading is done on tiny little devices?  Because let me tell ya – Amazon’s Kindle is certainly rising in popularity!

Kindle

I live in Chicago and make frequent use of public transportation.  The number of people carrying Kindles to keep themselves entertained keeps increasing.  I’ll be the first to admit that I thought the Kindle would be a quick-dying fad when they were released.  I assumed holding a machine would get old and people would start yearning for the feel of paper in their hands.

Boy was I ever wrong.  Kindles are more popular than ever!  With competition from Barnes & Noble’s Nook and Mac’s upcoming iPad, wireless reading devices will soon be everywhere.

Which is why a Kindle just might be a good last minute Valentine’s Day gift for that person in your life that loves to read.  They can still be {kind-of} on the cutting edge of technology, all of their future book purchases will cost less {most new digital books cost just $9.99}, and it’ll eliminate the hassle of carrying around heavy books {especially useful if you spend a lot of time on public transportation}.

Right now the 6″ Kindle is $259.  Amazon is offering FREE two-day shipping on Kindles, which means you could order this device now and have it by Saturday, giving you plenty of time to wrap it up all pretty before V-Day next weekend.
