Basically I hate taking books abroad as the heat wrecks them as does getting banged about in the case and with weight restrictions I have to leave them behind. This upsets me as your not guarenteed it wont be binned. So I was going to buy a cheap e-reader a friend posted a fab link for the cheapest one in Makro on RISI) but noone had a card for there. I searched the net for ages as I think the price of a Kindle for just to use abroad is just a bit much so I searched and searched for a cheapo option.
O/h said if I was spending £40 or £50 I am aswell to get a decent one but again I think that is a lot to use purely on holiday. Anyway long story short he halfed me for it and I am now testing it out to make sure it works as holiday is about 6 weeks time.
I am happy I wont have to leave any books behind (I will still buy some as their Target shop has great books for cheap) and I must say I am impressed with the pictures however it couldn't ever replace my proper books. I will certainly take advantage of the freebies for it but my first love shall always be the treebook.
