Cyprus Life – in pictures vs Fylde Coast Musings

Our new life in Cyprus began in early March 2004. Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas spending a glorious 12 years in Limassol. Feel free to read my posts and view my many #photosofCyprus. However in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We're now living on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea in the north west of England. More places for us to discover as this part of the UK is not so familiar to us either.

Kindle – smaller, lighter faster or, Kindle Keyboard?

So, another Kindle has arrived!

And, it’s cheaper than ever 🙂

It seems it has some advantages and disadvantages according to the reviews I’ve read.

The pro’s:

  • Smaller, lighter and a faster “page turn” appear to be the most widely appraised.
  • Fits in your pocket.
  • Weighs less than 6 ounces.

The con’s”

  • Lack of keyboard (it has an on-screen keyboard) makes for slower browsing.
  • 2GB capacity (approx 1,400 books) as opposed to 4GB for Kindle Keyboard with around 3,000 book storage.
  • Shorter battery life (1 month against 2 months for Kindle Keyboard).

It all depends on how you want to use it. For me, it would probably be perfect!

The NEW Kindle

I tend to get all my books via my desktop computer so don’t really use mine to browse the internet. It’s smaller and lighter so easier to carry around although I can’t say I have any problems with taking mine anywhere with me.

Purely as a reader – it sounds like the NEW Kindle has it all 😀

I'm "Shell" or Michele - formerly a UK Expat living in Cyprus since March 2004. Sadly, we had to return to UK in April 2016 due to family illness. We now live "over Wyre" where the "River meets the Sea" at Knott End on Sea, Fylde coast, Lancashire.
