Users of the Kindle can bookmark, highlight, and look up content on the digital screen. They are able to “dog-ear” or fold the page corners to remember a place and take notes or make references on the page. The device has menu options that allow users to do a number of different tasks, and the kit comes with the inclusion of the Oxford-American Dictionary. The newer versions of the Kindle are sleek and stylish, so they are attractive to the eye while being useful for reading. They have an “electronic-paper” display that provides a sharp, high-resolution screen that supposedly looks and reads like real paper. At a cost ranging from $139.00- $359.00 there is a Kindle designed to fit most budgets.
