Opinion: Kindle vs. book

By Caitlyn Watson, Staff Writer — Many people like to read whether it’s online or just reading a book. There are many things you can use to read that involve technology, for example, a Kindle.

Some people would prefer to go to the library or a bookstore to get a book to read. Others might want to use a Kindle to just download books. I think it is easier to read books on a Kindle because you can always have it with you and you don’t have to go anywhere if you want to get a book to read and it is more convenient. Also, if you are used to using technology most of the time then it might be easier for you to use a Kindle.

Kindles are easy to carry if you go anywhere because it fits in a backpack, purse, suitcase and more. Books might not fit in as many places if you want to take them places.

They are also easier to read in bed because you don’t have to worry about turning the pages like books. One nice thing about a Kindle is the screen lights up making it easier to read at night than a book.

Another reason I think Kindles are better than books is a Kindle will automatically keep your place when you are done reading. You don’t have to worry about using a bookmark to remember where you last left off like in a book.

If you want to read a book you can’t easily pick another one if the book you are currently reading isn’t what you want. With a Kindle, there are unlimited choices on what to read so if you want to read another book you can easily pick one to read. There are also free books that you can keep forever. If you want to keep an actual book, you have to pay for it.

Overall, I think people should read on a Kindle rather than an actual book.
