WHAT IS THE KINDLE?
You are a person who loves reading books from manga to ebooks. To begin, I want to raise an ambiguity: the word Kindle has 3 different meanings, which, admittedly, does not facilitate understanding, especially when one is not accustomed to digital and new technologies. But you’ll quickly discover that in fact, this is not complicated.
First, we have reading lights Kindle ( Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Paperwhite 3G ), or even Kindle tablets ( Kindle Fire ).
Then we have the Kindle library or Kindle store. This is the library that contains all the digital books (or ebooks) published and sold on Amazon.
Finally, there are ebooks Kindle, which is of particular interest in this article. Have you ever heard, “I just bought a Kindle, cannot wait to read it! “. It simply means that this person bought an ebook on Amazon (and thus in the Kindle library).
Someone might even be tempted to impress you by saying, “Tonight, dear, I read on my Kindle a Kindle purchased in the Kindle. “Bent, certainly (a Kindle ebook is necessarily purchased in the Kindle library), but it’s still acceptable!
My explanations, are they clear? Everyone follows, even those from the bottom? Allow me to doubt … Well, keep still and let us return to our sheep: how to read Kindle ebooks?
