Misty needs our help!! Since I mostly read on my iPad I thought my fellow readers (and Kindle users) could weigh in and help suggest one for her. She asks:
I was wondering if you might be able to recommend a Kindle for me? I want one that I can read in the bright sunlight, and that the matchmaker will play audio books on. … I have become a book junkie after finding your website. I never read anything but People magazine before that. LOL! Thank you!”
Susan: Paperwhite has the capabilities you want. I love mine. Can read outside and in the middle of the night it has a backlight.
Miss Denmark: This is the one I’ve been recommended in my reader groups!! My 2nd gen kindle needs to be upgraded
MichelleMarie: The Paperwhite doesn’t have audio capability so no audio books. Amazon removed audio From the kindles – you would need to get a Kindle Fire or find a used Kindle Touch
Caitlin: I have a paperwhite and love it. I do my audio books on my iPhone using either audible (which will switch back and forth with the kindle version) or my library’s apps.
Rebecca: Misty, load the free Audible app on your phone. You will read your ebook via your kindle of choice, and you can listen to the audio when you’re up and about, via your phone. The ebooks that have wispersync option when buying, will allow your devices to automatically sync each other where you are in your book, whether you read from it or listen to it. ie: if you listen up to chapter 5 while doing housework, your kindle will automatically sync up to chapter 5 on the ebook, for when you want to read it. I have both the kindle app and audible apps loaded both onto my iPad and phone, they both need wifi to enable them to sync from one device to the other, and always keep your place in your book. This would work the same with a kindle, and a phone with kindle & audible apps. I hope I make sense
