I love to read, and I read fast. Burning through stories at such a pace can cost a fortune in purchasing fees. It's also physically demanding cramming my multiple books in to my bags ready for beach time reading. And holidays! I can't fit my current 'to read' list into my suitcase so I inevitably run-out of things to read half way through my holiday.
If you're wondering what to get someone for Christmas or their birthday then a Kindle is blooming good idea. It seriously will be the gift that keeps on giving.
