How do you like to spend your travel time? Kindle Voyage has given me a great time, especially during travel time. I have to admit that suntanning, or lunch breaks at work have never been so enjoyable before I discovered e-readers. What was I looking for in the e-reader?
Before deciding what device I should pick, I had a look at reviews. In summer 2015 Kindle Voyage comments suggested that this device has the best and easiest on eyes screen. In this post I share with you a couple of images I took during my summer on Santa Monica beach.
I had a chance to read The Art of Keeping Secrets by Eva Rice and I was pleasantly surprised. I expected my eyes to be tired but nothing like this happened. As a bonus I could read at night without interrupting and disturbing people at the same room.
What I like Kindle Voyage for?
Various Font Sizes
Changing size and fonts is one touch away!
Visit Amazon.co.uk, find book you like, click and few seconds later you can read it on your Kindle. I bought my Kindle in USA but for my convenience I was signed up straight away to UK account.
Amazon claims that battery should last around 6 weeks. I am a bookworm so I have to charge my Kindle every three to four weeks.
Sun Free Reading Experience
The sun is shining, sunglasses are out and I do not have to look for a shade as screen does not reflect sun. Screen diffuses light and eliminates glare due to the use of micro-etched glass.

Weight & Size
Kindle Voyage is unbelievably light! Only 180g! 50 g heavier than iPhone 6. Kindle has high-resolution display of 300ppi and is very thin only 7.6 mm. Size: 162 mm x 115 mm x 7.6 mm
Everything is one click away: dictionary, save the word, check meaning, mark paragraph, open book, close book, turn page...
One of the best features for me. I purposely picked Kindle instead of a tablet to avoid notifications, Facebook, Twitter and all that time consuming jazz. Reading is a Me Time and I want this time to be uninterrupted by must see photos and videos of fluffy kittens. I would rather have one on my lap rather than on the screen.
Did I say that everything is (almost) one click away? Exactly! It is super easy so it makes a great gift for your granny.
Is there a world you do not understand? Just click on it and read its meaning. Moreover, they are added to a Vocabulary Builder so you can return it anytime to check your knowledge. It can be a great way to work on your language skills, or just have a little competition with your travel company. Whoever will lose pays for lunch!
If you share a bedroom with a loved one or someone who just does not understand your book addiction, built in light helps to ease the argument Light on or off. Kindle allows you to turn up or down brightness.
What I do not like?
One downfall is the idea to force your consumer to pay extra on top of £169.99 for Kindle to switch off the adverts. In my opinion as a customer I see it as quite unpleasant surprise, that makes me reconsider my purchase.
