I personally own this tablet. My experience with Amazon Kindles began back with the original Amazon fire tablet.
I obtained my original Amazon Fire tablet from a family member that was no longer using it. I wanted to take advantage of me Amazon Prime account and the ability to borrow books through the Kindle lending library as well as Amazon Prime Video.
I loved reading books on this device. I like that I can have multiple books loaded and jump between them when I want to take a break from one story and move onto another.
This year for my birthday, I decided to upgrade my device. This new HD 8 is fantastic and I highly recommend the Amazon Kindle devices. Take advantage now of the super sale going on! They make great gifts for your favorite reader.
