The Kindle Voyage is the complete package for reading. Anywhere that a Wi-Fi/3g connection can be found, the entire Kindle library is at hand. There is a less expensive Kindle reader available but, this would be the ideal purchase even if one has to save a little bit to get it. Such a purchase should be considered a long-term investment. Besides, the Kindle Voyage reader is easier on the eyes, and this should be considered the greater reason for the preference. Hope, you enjoy reading for a long time to come!
