Kindle Oasis Closest Ebook Reader To Real Book

April 20, 2016

kindle-oasis-beauty-shotI’ve been providing posts at least once a month with links to Kindle books that are available for free for a short time. You can certainly read these books on your computer, but it is a lot more convenient to read them on a tablet or a dedicated Kindle device.

Amazon has just released the latest device, the Kindle Oasis. It comes with a leather charging cover to give it a very long battery life and it feels as close as possible to holding a real book. How long does the battery last? It could be months!

This is not a color device and it doesn’t have all the tablet features. It does feature a 300 dpi paperwhite screen that is readable inside, outside or anywhere. So if you are a voracious reader who wants to read everywhere you go, this may be the perfect device for you!

If you are looking for a full-color device that also functions as a tablet, then you can get a 7″ Kindle Fire for only $49.99! This makes a great starter tablet as well as a handle device for reading Kindle books at a bargain price.

    Hi Foster—
    This may not be the right avenue to approach this; please correct me if I’ve erred: Just a simple question: aside from Amazon, do you have an inside track on where I could buy a boxed CorelDraw x6? If I succeed, I will certainly order your x6 books.
    Thanks —John

      This is definitely the wrong place for such a comment as this post has nothing at all to do with CorelDRAW. In short, after a new version of CorelDRAW is released, the old versions are discontinued. There are no places that I could name who have definitely have a legitimate version of something two versions old.
