Kindle3We’ve got a brand new Kindle 3 Wi-Fi to give away this week to one lucky reader, courtesy of AAR.

The Kindle is the most popular product in Amazon’s history and, as someone who loves her Kindle 3, it’s easy to see why.  So, if you’ve been wanting a Kindle 3, but find yourself not quite ready to shell out the bucks, this is your chance.

Entering is easy.  All you need to do comment to this post by 11:59 pm on Thursday, January 6th.

A few caveats apply:  Please comment only once.  Due to high postage costs, this giveaway is only open to residents of the U.S. and Canada. The winner will be chosen at random and notified by email on Friday morning January 7th.  The winner will have 24 hours to respond to the notification email and claim the prize.  After that on Saturday, January 8th a new winner will be chosen.  That winner will also have 24 hours – and so it will go until we have a winner. So, if you enter, please remember to check your email on Friday morning.

Good luck to all!

Kindle 3: A Consumer Review

Monday, September 6th, 2010

With a lower price, a smaller size, and improved contrast and faster page turning, Amazon may be offering an irresistible temptation to those who have yet to jump onto the eReader bandwagon.

I’ve been a Kindle user for close to three years now.  I’ve had all the versions and noted the significant improvements Kindle 2 offered over the original.  But, now, Amazon has topped all other versions with the new Kindle 3.

What I Love:

  • The faster page turning.
  • The smaller size.
  • The easy to use navigation buttons that all but eliminate accidental page turns.
  • The improved contrast that makes an already user-friendly reader experience even friendlier.
  • The ease of buying books without having to connect to a computer.
  • The longer battery life – Amazon says up to one month.
  • Storage that Amazon says will handle up to 3,500 books.  Wow.
