I bought my first Kindle in 2012. Since then, I read more than 400 ebooks. Not too much, not too few, but certainly a lot more than I would have read without the opportunity to carry a whole library with me at all time. Although a great device, my Kindle Keyboard v3.0 was a bit too bulky to carry around. When Oasis was launched I immediately ordered it. It is much leaner and I can carry it all the time. Whenever I want, I can take a break and read. A fantastic device, the MOST USEFUL gadget I ever bought.
