TRY YOUR LUCK: Doing Reading Right with the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite!

It feels like a lifetime ago, but once, reading was all I did.

Orson Scott Card’s Enderverse. Piers Anthony’s Xanth series. Even when the Harry Potter books were on the rise, I could devour pages by the hundreds in a matter of days.

But life’s changed a lot in the last decade. I’ve got two kids now. Responsibilities on all fronts. Heck—even when I do have free time, I’m working on things to improve every other part of my life!

The sad truth is that despite an ever-growing book collection, the only ones I find time to read these days involve Curious George and the Berenstain Bears for my sons’ bedtimes.

But perhaps part of the problem is how I approach reading.

For better or worse, my life involves a ton of multi-tasking. I write posts with Netflix playing on my second monitor, passively keeping up with the world while I work. Or do chores to my tunes to avoid getting distracted. The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite boasts features like a glare-free 300 ppi display that reads like a printed page—even in bright sunlight—and a battery that last weeks, not hours, but perhaps the best feature it has for me is that it just reads books.

It’s great to have as many devices around as I do but the vast functionality of them all can grow overwhelming. With a half-hour commute between home and work each day, it’s easy to use it up playing mobile games or chatting up a storm. But imagine if you used that time developing a reading routine to get through some of your favourites? (Or even the favourites you’ve yet to discover?)

And the stats show me I’m not alone—63% of men recognise the benefits of reading but haven’t the time or the tools to enjoy it.

The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite — Because Sometimes It’s Good to Live Life a Little Less… Complicated.

Doing Reading Right with the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite — Beach TreesAs we grow older, it’s the little things we stop making time for. Our hobbies. Leisure time. All the stuff we once got up to when we weren’t up to much of anything.

Well, I think it’s time we reclaim some of that feeling. Make time for free time before the alternative leaves us with no time at all. The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite is part of the Kindle’s seventh generation of devices. With nearly ten years’ development since its first release in November 2007, it’s one of the best ways to hold thousands of books at a time without the backache!

Good luck to all who enter—hopefully this post helped rekindle your passion for reading! (See what I did there?)

Until the next,

  1. I love to read but I don’t have one favorite book. I like to read paranormal romance,urban fantasy, even young adult books. There’s too many to have a favorite.

  2. I like Nora Roberts romance books. I particularly like her trilogy’s. I like reading about places of interests. Different countries etc. I like poetry also. There are many I just pick up if it looks interesting and I read it.

  3. Where to start, CT. Favourite 2017 books include:
    – If on a winter’s night by Italo Calvino
    – The Unlimited Dream Factory – J.G. Ballard
    – The Will to Change – bell hooks
    – Grape Olive Pig

    and I’m incredibly excited about the new Kevin Kwan release

  4. I’m an avid reader but I don’t have one favourite book, lots of authors though. Stephen King, J.K. Rowling, James Patterson, Agatha Christie, Danielle Steel, Edgar Wallace, Robert Ludlum to name a few. 🙂

  5. Hi, I am presently reading “Crow Lake” a #1 best seller by a Canadian Author Mary Lawson. I dont have a favorite book or author.

  6. Right now it’s Beatrix Potter tales and Winnie the Pooh, lol. It’s just when this is all I have the time to read and I get to chose between these and a lot of Lego-Cars-Marvel comics-Fairies-Mickey… books, I’d definitely choose the first two.

  7. I mostly read YA books, I tend to read fae, sci-fi, worlds ending, traveling to other worlds… one of the best series I’ve read was Pendragon

  8. I have wanted an eReader forever!!

    It is impossible for me to pick a favorite book because it depends on my mood…lately I like reading Paranormal Romance!

  9. I like a lot of the classic books like Gone With The Wind and Rebecca but I also like some of the new books as I read and discover them. Sometimes I just feel like reading a romance novel because it is a quick read and does not take a lot of concentration.

  10. That is a hard one. For many years my favourite book was The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, but I also really love the Divergent trilogy, all the Harry Potter Books, The Maze Runner series, The Hunger Games Trilogy and the I am Number Four series. I also love most Stephen King books, and I have a not-so-secret-secret addiction to Nicholas Sparks. Too many books just to pick only one lol

  11. A few of my fave books:

    Who Do You Think You Are? by Alice Munro
    When Rabbit Howls by The Troops for Truddi Chase
    The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

  12. I love anything by Stephen King, so I would say The Gunslinger because they are in production of the movie right now.

  13. The only books I read are romance and one of my favourite books is “It Had to be You” but I have a long list of favourites that goes with this book.

  14. Stephen Florida – Gabe Habash
    Priestdaddy: A Memoir–Patricia Lockwood

    Kintu–Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi (A favourite)

  15. I have to pick one favourite book? That is so hard!
    Right now I’m reading Rumpole by John Mortimer. Hid sarcastic humour is so good. Read that.

  16. Right now I am reading The Orphan’s Tale. Some of my favourites are To Kill A Mockingbird, The Nightingale and The Women in the Castle.

  17. I don’t get a lot of time to read (for me) so I tend to pick shorter novels. YA novels appeal to me because I like knowing what the kids I teach are reading. The Hunger Games Trilogy is one of my favourite series.
