Admittedly, I can be crazy at times. I can even be one of these people who don’t read everything and jump to what they want to say. But I put this post on Facebook earlier today.
“I love my Nook and actually read mostly on my iPad (unless I’m in the sun). But so many of the books I want are only available on Kindle (boo to Amazon for that control). So, I’m thinking of investing in a 6″ Kindle with eInk. Do you have one? Is it worth it to spend the extra money for the one without the special offers? Or are those offers not that big of a deal? Let me know if you have one with the offers and what you think.”
I have received responses about how good the offers can be (I don’t care WHAT the offers are, just whether or not they are annoying while I’m reading), the pros and cons of a Kindle Fire (I have an iPad as it stated in the first few words so why on earth would I want a Kindle Fire?), and that I should just read my Nook in the sun and download the Kindle app. Oh, and that maybe I should google what kind of offers they are. Again, I could care less WHAT the offers are, just if they are too much of a nuisance.
Sheesh! Am I that poor of a communicator that I deserved those responses that were totally not what I was asking?
However, I’m asking my WordPress friends who have a Kindle – not the Fire – but a plain jane Kindle what they think. Is it worth it to buy the Kindle WITHOUT the special offers, or are those offers unobtrusive enough that it will not disrupt my reading.
