Coming up on my 200th day reading, I wanted to do a post on why I love my Kindle, including some pretty cool features I've only recently found.
Most people are aware of the basic benefits of ebook readers. You can buy a book anywhere you have wi-fi and have it instantly. They let you take a whole library with you in a compact form. Most of the time this is just convenient, but I've done a good amount of reading on planes. Reading some of the books that I've done (e.g. War and Peace, Infinite Jest, and Don Quixote) on a plane would have been absurd. In fact, some people cut Infinite Jest into three parts to make it portable. Additionally helpful with Infinite Jest was how it handles end notes. You can click on them and read them inline without flipping back and forth. This doesn't work on all books, Lolita's notes weren't indicated in the text, for some reason.
