The Kindle makes reading easier


I like to read books but I used to find it frustrating to be reading comfortably then having to adjust myself to be able to turn a page. I never thought having muscular dystrophy would affect my reading, but it ended up starting to feel like a chore even though it should be so simple.

But I wasn’t going to let my muscular dystrophy stop me from reading (even if by just making it inconvenient) so I finally got an Amazon Kindle and it totally changed that feeling. Now it’s so easy to flip through a book. All I have to do is push a button and goes to the next page. The one I have has an advance button on each side so no matter which side I am holding it on, I can just use whatever thumb is there to go through.

I also like the Amazon Kindle because it saves me from having to carry multiple books onto the plane or in my backpack. It also has a simple web browser and you can get a ton of free classic books — you know the ones you always wanted to read but never did even if you were assigned to read it!

I do recommend the Amazon Kindle or any other e-Reader for that matter to anyone who has muscular dystrophy — either for yourself or as a gift. The prices have started to come down and it’s well worth it.
