I think I have ended up liking it more in principle than in practice. I think they're wonderful devices but it turns out I don't use mine very much. Without the Kindle app on my iPad, though, I'd have no way at all to read some materials. I think I would have been better served by a Kindle Fire than by a Paperwhite.
Sorry to hear that, but glad you can at least use the computer.I can't read ! Talk about a weird deal. A few years ago as I was driving , I suddenly went blind in one eye and could just see a little bit out of the other . I pulled to the side of the road and thought I was having a stroke. I closed my eyes for about 5 minutes and the blindness went away. I should have gone to a doctor but figured it was a fluke and I ignored it. Just a week later , it happened again while driving and took longer to go away. I went to an eye specialist and she said I was prone to/suffering from Ocular migraines . Turns out I was reading several hours a day and also on the computer several hours. The cause was eyestrain. She said I had to pick one or the other , reading or the computer. So , I chose the computer and quit reading. I can be on the PC for 10 or 12 hours a day with no eye problems and have not had a "blackout" since I gave up books , although I do miss them.
Not personally, but people have done so.Has anyone put Japanese books on a US kindle? I haven't had a chance to play with it yet but I wouldn't mind getting some additional reading material
Oh, yes, I believe that's correct. They only block you out of titles they sold you that they think you didn't have the right to buy from them. If you plan to put Japanese books on from other sources you should be fine and it should work on many models. If you have accessed the amazon store from outside Japan on that device though, you may have issues with amazon purchases.I would think that might only affect my amazon-managed kindle library?
