In his new book, Tim Ferris asks a very simple question: **What purchase of $100 or less has most positively impacted your life in the last six months (or in recent memory)?** I thought about this for a while and I can never come with a better answer than this: **MY KINDLE PAPERWHITE!** <center> ![616y1qzHetL.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmZfY9guTwnXfv47DSezPDDd6gBz2G1qHawsYiC1krqgqF/616y1qzHetL.jpg)</center> [ Ok, admit it! You thought this post is about coins!!! ] I got it on sales for 90$ so it qualifies. Even at full price is still the best investment ever! I love to read and I love to read a lot of books in the same time and honestly, a lot of the new books are not available here too fast. So when I really need a book, I can always get it on Kindle, often in the same day it's available online. But the power of Kindle goes beyond this: it's a library, a storage unit, a vault of infinite knowledge! Because right now you can store literally any book on Kindle. It's somewhat of a mind-boggling concept to my parents for example. They see a big library as a sign of a well-read person. How could that small device be anything like the hundreds of books that occupy most of the space in our house? It doesn't feel the same! Yet, it's much more.. There are also a few cool little tidbits that some people don't know about Kindle. For example: you can lend a Kindle book to other Kindle user for a few weeks. It's a bit of an assholeish move from Amazon: you "lend" the book to your friend and they can read but you can't use it during the lent time. Now, that is a lot like lending real book just that..well, you're not actually sending anything! They could easily let you read it in the same time but noup!. Still, lending is nice. You can also make notes on your kindle books and see what other notes or highlights other people reading the same book made. It's kind of a socializing of a very solitary experience: reading. It's nice to see what other people thought was worth highlighting and what did you miss. Finally: *The smell argument!!*. Yes, the Kindle doesn't smell like a real book and yes, the smell of a new book is unique and precious and you'll miss it. Sorry. Go sniff some new books in the library, buy one time to time then go back to your paperwhite and enjoy reading! Look, once you start using the Kindle, you simply won't feel the need to smell the book anymore. It's a little sad that this ritual is dying out but it's good for the trees, at least? I want to urge you to get the Paperwhite. It's a little more expensive but it's so worth it to have internal lighting. Reading in the dark is such a an awesome experience! I hope this will convince you to jump on a paperwhite if you haven't yet and please tell me in the comments where do you stand on the debate: REAL BOOKS vs KINDLE! ( and what's your favorite book cause I need inspiration!) Have a good Saturday, all!!
