So I’ve used my Kindle Fire for magazines, which I’m mostly all right with. I’ve used it for the Bible, which I’m mostly all right with. However, I just started reading my first novel on it (on account of The Hunger Games trilogy being free to borrow for Amazon Prime members), which I’m mostly not all right with. I find that if I turn the brightness down to about 10%, read in low light, and look at the screen at an angle, it’s tolerable.
Yeah, that’s not exactly a ringing endorsement. I don’t know what it is about reading a novel that is so much different from reading a magazine article, but the former is very fatiguing without the above prep. I’ll read Catching Fire and Mockingjay like this, mostly because I’m reading at the same impatient what-happens-next pace as I did The Hunger Games, and it seems silly to buy them when I don’t have to, and I’m still not sure I want a Kindle with an e-ink display.
