That is the closest meaning of what I plan to write in this post. I hope it’s self descriptive enough. And if you’re interested to know more about it, read further.
I’m not a bookworm myself, and having to spend hundreds on ebook (after currency exchange, most of the books are about that range) holds me back at time even I’m interested to read more on the book. I’ll try to get ebook version of it, which is pretty much cheaper compares to hardcopy but that would mean I’ll have to be seated in front of the screen more frequent (I’ve already spent 75% of my time on that). Then I thought I came up with a brilliant idea, having the ebook to load on my Samsung Galaxy Note II, but after reading it for few days, I realize my eye sight getting blurry! No joke.
Then while I can’t afford to spend the difference to get a hardcopy book instead, I came across the famous e-ink device, the Kindle. The gadget is no stranger to anyone who are e-book readers. I should have asked for advice from those friends and get to know it sooner. While the device sounds awesomely good, and I am sure to get it one myself since I can’t think of a reason not getting it, Amazon is not shipping the device to my place! Then I’m thinking it would be strange since the device is being mentioned is almost all part of the world, even some netizens based in same country as I am, I guess there must be a way. I google it, and true enough, there is some third party selling it or you can engage a third party agent managing the logistic, it’s vPost. I’ve had some reading on vPost some moons ago and didnt bother to learn more about it till now. I guess it’s not that late since I’m just going to use it.
And off I go to get myself an account so I can start ordering Kindle Paperwhite, 6″ High Resolution Display with Next-Gen Built-in Light, Wi-Fi – Includes Special Offers and
Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Leather Cover, Onyx Black (does not fit Kindle or Kindle Touch). It was easy. Got myself registered at vPost, then copy the address (US) for my usage when doing the ordering in Amazon. I’ll deal with vPost later on once I’ve got my device shipped to the US address.
That’s it. I’ve ordered my first e-book reader, Kindle Paperwhite with costly cover (1/3 of the Paperwhite price!). But it’s worth it, I’m telling myself. I’m going to push myself to read more with it and getting more e-books to brush up my knowledge. I’ll share more when I put my hands on the device!
