T4 Post Icon Kindle and camping

As a family that read loads of books we got the kids a kindle last year. It makes so much sense when there's 4 in a camper. Suddenly we arent taking up half the vans storage with books! Fantastic! We used to go on a two week holiday with at least 5 books each.

If only clothes could be shrunk like that. Maybe east German naturist camping, lol!

awesome.. I have a ridiculous number of books on mine, (I don't watch TV) and have moved from hardcore 'Nothing will ever replace paper' and having about 3k books at home, to basically only buying books electronically now! I have a Kindle, but prefer reading on the Kindle app on my iPad. Awesome.

Reading is the most anti-social form of relaxation ever invented My wife is an avid reader and I bought her a Kindle for her Xmas last year, she never speaks to me now ..............................


Hold on



I love the Kindle

Kindles rock, I used to travel a lot for work and read trash fiction to turn my brain off before I went to bed. As a result, my bookshelves are jam packed with ebarassing trashy crime and war books. Since I got my kindle, no-one can see the sh*te that I read

I'm sure hiding the trash we read is an advantage. My wife churned through the 50 shades books. Put a smile on my face it did more than once no less.

I was going to say how relaxing an electronic device it is, unlike than a tablet/notebook which is stimulating rather than making you slow down and chill on hols, but I see this thread is going in another direction.

never thought I'd enjoy such a un spec'd device so much !
