If you are a person that reads and travels a lot, sometimes you need to make hard choices 😓. This write up of ours is full of insights that'll keep you fully in check with your agendas this June holidays 😍! Read on to find out what we're on about...
The sad reality is that it’s almost impossible to carry real books with us. Restricted by carry on/check in baggage limits and the sheer weight of physical books will almost encourage you to leave your books behind. If you want to read the entire Harry Potter series from start to finish, just imagine hauling around all seven of those books for three months through your holiday trip.
Thankfully, Amazon Kindle is your solution for international travel. Imagine travelling with your entire book collection on your Kindle, you will be spoilt for reading choices. Here are some reasons why you should bring your kindle to during the June school holidays.
It is difficult enough trying to limit your carry on to the airline's weight limit without trying to squeeze a bunch of books in there. Although there are still many fine reasons to buy physical copies to have and to hold at home, it’s just inconvenient to take them on a trip with you.
An Amazon Kindle can be easily held with one hand for easy usage and for carrying it around. Amazon Basic Kindle and Amazon Paperwhite 3 is just 0.91cm thick, Amazon Oasis 2 is 0.83cm thick and Amazon Paperwhite 4 is even slimmer at 0.82cm thick. The “heaviest” Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 3 weighs just 205g, with the lightest of Amazon Kindle being the Basic Kindle weighing at 161g.
When you think of wet vacations, you might want to visit Bali, Batam, Bintan or even Maldives for their beautiful beaches and water sports. But what makes your vacation even better is to also spend your vacation relaxing by the poolside or beach, reading one good book after another. Although it sounds satisfying, books and water don't go well together, there are a lot of obstacles to overcome before you can be truly relaxed while you read by your poolside. Fortunately, if you are thinking of fulfilling that fantasy, it is now possible with Kindle Oasis and the latest more affordable Kindle Paperwhite 4.
Kindle Oasis and Kindle Paperwhite 4 are both waterproof – IPX8 rated. IPX8 rating means the device passed the tests to withstand immersion in 2 meters of fresh water up to 60 minutes. The fact that your Kindle Oasis or Kindle Paperwhite 4 is safe in contact with water will encourage many users to take Amazon Kindle on wet vacations. If you enjoy reading at the beach, this means that you can rinse your Kindle Paperwhite 4 from the sand with tap water.
Even if you can fit physical books comfortably into your luggage, why would you, when you could bring an Amazon Kindle capable of storing thousands of books with books you might conceivably want to browse on the beach or in a cafe with you in a portable hand sized Amazon Kindle?
Amazon Basic Kindle and Kindle Paperwhite 3 both comes with 4GB of storage, which you can easily store up to ~2000-3000 ebooks. Amazon Kindle Oasis and Kindle Paperwhite 4 have 8GB of storage, which you can store up to ~4000-6000 ebooks.
