Tips and Tidbits for Retirement Income and Senior Living


Most of the Baby Boomers and those over 50 belong to a generation, which still cherishes the romance of holding and reading a book, sitting quietly near their favorite window of their house or in the shade of a tree in the garden.Kindle is the best e-reader for seniors as it has perfect reading feel and experience as that of a real book.

Kindle has several lovable features.  With only less than 6 ounces in weight, Kindle is lighter than an ordinary paperback.  (There are version of Kindle with slight weight variations). As its thickness is only 1/3 of an inch, it is much thinner too. Due to its high contrast E Ink display, Kindle delivers clear, crisp text and images without causing you any eye strain.

Another feather which makes Kindle E-Ink the best e-reader is that you can read it like real paper print in bright sunlight and also in your bedroom lamp. In comparison, the reflective screens on LCD tablets and computers make it hard to read in bright light and many people find that the backlight in these LCD screen tires their eyes over long reading sessions. (Color LCD versions of Kindle is also available )

KIndly is the best e-reader which can replace your whole library, though it weights less than a book. It can carry nearly1400 books in its 1.2 GB of user content. Your reading material can be downloaded from Amazon’s huge collection of over one million books, including New York Times Best Sellers. In addition, you can also get audio books, periodicals and blogs.  All these books and periodicals can be downloaded directly to your Kindle, the best e-reader, using its in built Wi-Fi facility.

While you can buy your books and reading material at low prices, you can also access to over 2 million free, out-of-copyright, pre-1923 books such as Pride and Prejudice. In addition, with an Amazon Prime membership, Kindle owners can choose from thousands of books to borrow for free – including over 100 current and former New York Times Bestsellers – as frequently as a book a month, with no due dates. No wonder it is considered the best e-reader.

Kindle Keyboard has amazing battery life. With the wireless kept ‘off’, a single charge can last up to one month for half an hour of daily reading.

Kindle is very simple to operate.  It has noiseless buttons conveniently located at the edges with which you can turn pages easily without moving your fingers. Kindle Keyboard is ready to use right out of the box – no setup, no software to install, no computer required.

Once you get too tired or idle to read, Kindle Keyboard has another amazing feature.  It can read out loudly the passages in English to you. In addition, you can also download over 60,000 Audible.com audio books, read by authors, celebrities, and world-class narrators—with wireless delivery via Wi-Fi. Kindle can make the reading fonts larger or smaller suiting to your visibility and needs.

Above features are available in Kindle 6” E Ink display. Other versions are Kindle Paperwhite, Kindle Paperwhite 3G, Kindle Fire HD 7”, Kindle Fire HD 8.9” etc.  All of them differ in their features. However, I personally feel that Kindle 6” E Ink display  is the best e-reader and ideal one for use by an elderly person due to its simplicity and affordability.

With its simple, easy to use format, user friendly shape and features and huge capacity and utility, Kindle is the best e-reader and an ideal gift for the seniors, especially those who love reading.  Kindle is delivered at your doorstep in most of the countries including India and the payment can be made directly using your Credit card.
