When we’re traveling, I like to kick back when we get to the hotel and read for a while to relax. Having to pack a physical book can be a problem sometimes when you don’t have much room in your suitcase. So I found a great solution to that.

The one electronic device, besides my phone of course, that I love to take with me when I travel is my Amazon Fire.

It is such a great all-in-one device. Not only can I read with it, but I can get my email, play games, search the web and so many other things.

I prefer the Amazon fire 8″ just because I find the size similar to a book and it makes not only reading Kindle books easier, but also my emails and web browsing more manageable. The original reason I got a kindle was because I had so many books and nowhere to keep them and I didn’t want to get rid of them. With my kindle I could keep all the ones I wanted and not take up space. When I started looking for a kindle, I saw the fire and realized I wouldn’t need to use my laptop as much if I had this.

Not only can you use your fire for reading, but as mentioned above, you can get your email, play games, search the internet, watch tv ( freeve comes with it as an app), download a variety of apps, take pictures, and so much more. It has 13 hours of battery life when reading, less when using apps. It also comes equipped with Alexa. The only problem I have had when I just want to open an attachment and it will automatically download as a file, but it’s easy enough to delete these after you read it. Just a little more time consuming than it just opening.

If you’re looking for just a Kindle to read with, I suggest Kindle paperwhite. This is a great option if all you are looking for is somewhere to store books and read. This has a built in adjustable front light and dark mode feature. This model has 2x the storage of previous models and a longer battery life.

There are many options for both the Kindle fire and paperwhite, you should probably compare what would work best for you. These are the ones I prefer. If you are a reader and like to read while traveling and on vacation check out a Kindle I think you would love it.
