The Kindle: A Gift that Keeps Giving

Aug 9th, 2011 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

Seniors Love to Read

Senior citizens have always enjoyed reading.  In fact, books are some of our best friends.  A new technological device on the market makes thousands of books available to us instantly, just by downloading them from the Internet.  You need the device, an Internet connection, and a desire to read.  We’re talking about the Kindle.

If you have not yet been introduced to the Kindle, by Amazon, it is time you began hinting that for your next special occasion that would be a great gift idea.  If no one picks up on your hints, then buy one for yourself.  It is a masterful invention that allows for the reader convenience, ready availability, inexpensive entertainment, and the opportunity to stay abreast of the latest best sellers.

Whatever genre you enjoy in your reading experience is available at the touch of a button.  When spending time waiting for an appointment, you may just pull it out of your purse, carry all or back pack and invest that waiting time in something very enjoyable and productive.

Unlimited Books Available Online

Presently, all the books you could desire are waiting for your choice.  Once bought, they are yours, but take no space in your already full library.  You become an instant resource on the latest book in whatever field you enjoy most.  You don’t have to wait for the publisher to put the books on sale at the local book store.  It is convenience at your fingertips 24/7.

There are several other similar devices on the market that you might want to consider.  Our experience with the Kindle prompts this one for highlighting today.  Some seniors may need the assistance of grandchildren to show them how to operate the device.

Suggestion: share the use of your Kindle.  Ere long, they will want one of their own so that all the gifts of this marvelous device can keep giving immediate pleasure to them.
