Just recently, I bought myself an e-reader because I deserve it. Lol! I’ve been wanting to have one since God knows when but due to: 1.) Lack of funds 2.) Expensive Amazon shipping – I find it hard to get one. Luckily, my on-the-job training pays me with a considerable amount of allowance and I also chanced upon a FB seller who retails different kinds of kindles. Also, shipping fee isn’t that high compared to Amazon’s.
I saved up my allowance and ordered the Basic Kindle 2014 edition. For now, I can only afford this. Hahaha! I was actually choosing between Kindle fire and Basic Kindle but I chose the latter for the reason that: a.) it has no apps so no distraction while reading b.) its size is just right. It’s so handy so I can bring it anywhere. Also, it fits perfectly on my bags.
When I received my package containing this, I was a bit bummed and slightly disappointed upon knowing that it has no built-in light and it is actually black and white. Que horror! (You must check reviews and specs first, self!!!) One reason I bought a kindle is for my bookstagram so I could post ebooks that i’m currently reading but eeekk! This one’s black and white. 😦 So i’m considering buying Kindle Fire after my graduation. Kindle overload! Lol.
