Kindle has come!

Recently, I have got the "amazon-kindle Wi-Fi" without considering about how to use it because its price looked very attractive to me.

I have learned how to use the device from several web-site about it after the oder. In my final thought, the kindle is a very good device for non-native English speaker to learn English because we can read many English texts written in English that are downloaded from web-sites by using the device and also it can read a text loudly aloud in English.

For a while, I will try to use it in several usages.

I haven't bought a Kindle. I prefer paper books. Maybe I am becoming an old man.

It is more common to say "read a text aloud" than "read a text loudly". If you read a text aloud, you are speaking in a normal voice. If you read a text loudly, you might be shouting.

It so happens that I've been thinking about picking up one of these e-readers. I've been waiting for something like this for a good decade now and I think I'll read more if I have one.

Thank you for a good advice. Your explanation help me understand the way to use "loudly" and "aloud".


I am not a good reader, so I do not know whether the device is useful to me or not. But, it is very interesting to try it in several ways.
