Have you often fantasized about reading a book but were put off by their bookiness? Have you always yearned for that intimate reading experience but just couldn’t get over the booky hurdle of bookiness that most books exude? Well Amazon has come up with just the solution for YOU.
“At half the thickness of Amazon's first e-book reader, the Amazon Kindle 2 ($359) is pretty inviting. It's a, sleek, curved tablet that you can easily hold in your hands.”
My God! This revolutionary invention is so book-like that you can actually easily hold it in your hands! Like a book!
“The first-generation Kindle weighed 10.3 ounces and offered a paperlike E-Ink display that keeps eyestrain at bay.”
And it has a paper-like quality! Wow! Just like books!
“The first Kindle was readable in sunlight…”
Hallelujah! Like books!
“… it also had long battery life…”
Brilliant! Who doesn’t hate it when you get to a good bit and your book stops working?
“… and allows you to highlight passages at will.”
What, like a pen, on paper? AT WILL? It’s a miracle I tell you!
“The Kindle 2 retains all of those capabilities, in a slimmer form. In my tests with the device, it felt easier to hold, especially one-handed.”
My God AGAIN! This new not-book is SO book-like it’s even like one of those books you can hold in one hand. Like a paperback. A paperback BOOK? Brilliant!
“And the slim form made it easier to pack alongside my ultraportable laptop and other devices in my gear bag.”
It IS like a paperback book! Brilliant. It’s SO paperback book-like you can put it in bags! Genius! And the pièce de résistance of this God-like-genius invention? Drum roll… PERLEEZE!
“The Kindle 2 turns pages 20 percent faster than the original Kindle does. The faster refresh allows you to navigate the screen in real time, at least.”
It… turns… pages… as… fast… as… a… REAL BOOK! Genius!
I had a quick scan of the Amazon reviews but couldn’t get past the first amazed customer's review:
“I've had the Kindle 2 in my hands for almost a day and have carried it on one commute.”
