Book Blogger Hop: Do you own more than one eBook reader?

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.


Do you own more than one eBook reader?

Yes, I own more than one eBook reader. I have my original Kindle Fire, circa 2012, that I can read eBooks or NetGalley ARCs on, or even listen to audiobooks. About a year ago, I thought it breathed it’s last, but did a system restore and all seemed fine, except for Apps. I can no longer use any apps. The reason I haven’t given up this Kindle is because sometimes I use two Kindles at once, one for streaming a video or music and one for reading at the same time.

My main Kindle is the Kindle Fire 10, 64GB with a 128GB micro SD card.

  • 10.1″ 1080p full HD display; 32 or 64 GB of internal storage (add up to 512 GB with microSD)
  • Now 30% faster thanks to the new 2.0 GHz octa-core processor and 2 GB of RAM
  • Longer battery life—Up to 12 hours of reading, browsing the web, watching video, and listening to music
  • Hands-free with Alexa, including on/off toggle
  • 2 MP front and rear-facing cameras with 720p HD video recording
  • Dual-band, enhanced Wi-Fi
  • Now with USB-C and faster charging.  Includes a USB-C cable & 9W power adapter in the box.
  • 1-year limited warranty
  • Enjoy your favorite apps like Netflix, Facebook, Hulu, Instagram, TikTok, and more through Amazon’s Appstore (Google Play not supported)
  • Picture-in-Picture viewing with Netflix, STARZ, Pinterest, MLB At Bat and more.

Some people may be put off by the larger size, but I stream a lot on my Kindle Fire and like the bigger screen. I use my Kindle Fire 10 so much that I’ve worn it out twice in two years, the first time my Kindle stopped charging 10 months after I got it, and the next year the volume buttons stopped working 11 months in. Both times the device was under warranty so my replacement was no charge.

I’ve also bought 6 Kindles for the kids since 2012. One survives. Now that the younger two have phones (but no sim cards yet), they don’t use their Kindle much anymore. Every time I’ve bought a Kindle, it is when they are on sale, like Black Friday or Cyber Monday. I don’t think I’ll be replacing anymore Kindles for the kids, but might invest in a smaller, more portable Kindle like the Fire 7 for myself so it fits in my larger purses.

What about you? Do you have more than one eBook reader?
