I love books. I know there are many people who love to read books. However, most books are printed on papers and when we talk about papers, we think about trees and the nature. The truth is that we have less trees now (all over the world) and we can do something to help save our environment.
E-books have been introduced to us for a very long time. Just how many of us appreciate the value of E-books? I am sure you know you can buy E-books easily from online sites such as Amazon. Kindle is a tool developed by Amazon to help us read E-books the easy way.
Most of the time, we read E-books on PC or laptop. With Kindle, we can read at anywhere we want because Kindle is as big as a normal paperback book. Kindle is also thin and light so you can hold it in your hand without feeling heavy (or bulky).
