Avid holiday readers can easily get through a book a day while travelling, especially when making epic cross-country journeys on public transport. A good page-turner is always a holiday treat, but a rather heavy one when piled up with a dozen other books in your suitcase. This is where the e-reader comes in, a light and accessible device that will store thousands of books for you, all accessible at the touch of a button. |
E-readers have been growing in popularity in recent years and it’s easy to see why. Compact and easily transportable, the e-reader is a portal to infinite worlds and wisdom. Of the large range of e-readers available, Amazon’s Kindle is the most popular and has the most respect among consumers.
Why Take a Kindle on Holiday?

1. New Books Wherever You Are: Owning a Kindle means that you will never run out of books. All you need is a connection to the hotel or café WiFi and you can download new books to you e-reader at any time. If a new book by your favourite author or a new magazine edition comes out while you are away in sunnier climbs, don’t despair – just download and enjoy it straight away.
2. Enjoying What’s Around You: Ever go somewhere on holiday and think – I want to know more about that? With a Kindle, culture vultures can dive deeper into the most fascinating holiday sights they encounter. Find out more about an ancient church or read a romantic novel set in the picturesque mountains you have just visited, it’s all available instantly.
3. Travel Light: The Kindle allows you to be much more mobile with your reading habits on holiday. Taking a few books and poems on a mountain hike with you is now possible – reading in the most unusual places is advised.
