Comments from some of those who selected Kindle as one of their top tools

“You can always having something to read when you’re in the mood with the Kindle app on your phone or tablet. Also, there are many self-published books that are only available in digital versions. The Kindle App opens up lots of opportunities for learning.” Connie Malamed, 2014

“I read something every day on my Kindle PaperWhite. I can upload PDFs and comment on them and also upload a whole wishlist of books I hope to read. I read every night before sleeping. It used to be tangible hard copy books, but I find the Kindle easier. Will I be missing the hard copy books by this time next year?” Jenny Mackness, 2014
