Kindle Fire vs. Kindle

Comparing the Kindle Fire to the Kindle e-reader

A few months ago, I wrote a review of the Kindle Fire HDX 7″, HDX Display, Wi-Fi, 16 GB – Includes Special Offers. At the time, I was thrilled with the device and intended to use it exclusively. However, while I have been using the Kindle Fire, the arthritis in my shoulders, elbows, and hands has worsened, and I can’t use the Fire without significant pain. Therefore, I use it only for occasional games now and have returned to reading on my Kindle. I’m sure this won’t be an issue for most people, but I wanted to share the information in case someone with similar problems is trying to decide which device to buy. I still think the Kindle Fire is a fabulous product, but it’s not the right device for me to use to read. My Kindle Keyboard is so small and light that I can stick it in my purse and carry it everywhere I go. I can comfortably read at the table, in bed, or anywhere else. The battery lasts a lot longer than the battery on the Kindle Fire, and the Kindle has survived being dropped several times without any damage. Although I enjoyed the color on the Kindle Fire, I don’t miss color when I’m reading a novel. In short, the Kindle is perfect for me to use every day.
