** EREADERS **
I've often been asked what ereader I use. I can't speak for any others (good or bad) as I haven't tried anything other than the Kindle. Both original and now the Kindle Fire.
: Kid friendly. You can block what they see, surf and put purchasing blocks in place.
I haven't killed it in nearly a year and half.
Visibility outside. The original Kindle was no problem reading outside OR inside in normal lighting.
The Kindle Fire is great for reading inside, or even without lights as it's backlit...but outside? Not so much unless you're in a shaded area.
Still, I give it 4.5 out of 5 Stars
and would buy again!
