Kindle Fire eBooks/Magazines

Post by Wyz on Wed May 21, 2014 2:03 am

I have three (3) Kindle Fire devices, the Original Kindle Fire (1st gen) and two Kindle Fire HDs (2013) editions , all of them work great for reading.  One of them isn't mine  it belongs to a blind relative. 

I enjoy reading , and I absolutely enjoy using a device to read that has a built-in dictionary. Saves me time looking for my dictionary and having to lug it around to various places, too.

Currently reading a book by Agatha Christie called A Murder Is Announced that was a special deal with a Sync'd Audible Audiobook.  I can follow along reading while it's being narrated .  How awesome is that ?  Amazon calls it WhisperSync.

Why did the font change in size?  Weird.

I get a couple of Tech Magazines  too ; PC World and Maximum PC which I can keep in the cloud to go back and peruse if I missed something.  I pay monthly for the 12 month issues. . .which I don't mind  since both of them are I think $1.50 ($1.99 for the most) and that is better budgeted than trying to cough up $40 or more for the more expensive magazine subscriptions.

The downside to going digital with magazines . . .some don't format well for Tablets ( it doesn't matter which one) , and unlike a paper subscription you don't get the extra goodies that are "bagged" with it. 

Price differences:

Edge Magazine , delivered monthly /13 issues a year ; Price $39.99 First 30 days FREE , ls a multi-format videogame magazine , and their digital edition isn't printable plus it doesn't include supplements like you would get with printed copies.

PC GAMER , delivered monthly/13 issues a year; $19.99 First 30 days FREE, is a hardcore gamer's magazine.  The comments about Kindle Fire are mixed but a few mention having problems trying to read using one. In particular they felt is wasn't any better than reading a PDF. .  a whole lot of scrolling and squinting.

I'll be posting more on what I'm reading and what deals you can find in this forum.
