If you are considering buying an eBook reader and live in Australia, there are a few choices you can make.  Several brands of eBook readers are available on our shores, but after thorough research, I ended up buying an Amazon Kindle 3, and am very glad I did.

The Reasons I Chose Kindle

  • The words on it’s “E Ink Screen” have the look of real print on page.
  • I can read it in full sunlight. Can’t do that with my iPad or mobile phone.
  • My Kindle 3 is so light, I can hold it for hours without getting tired.
  • I can be lazy about charging it…battery lasts for about a month!
  • The Kindle can store thousands of books…this is great because so many brilliant free books are available.
  • It can read all my PDF files.
  • I can browse the web with it (in Black and White of course).
  • I can “loan” my Kindle books to all my other friends who have Kindles…and I can loan their books, for up to 14 days at a time.
  • I can make notes and bookmark any page for easy reference.
  • The Kindle can read to me (with a slightly robotic voice) when I’m too lazy and it also plays my audiobooks.

Amazon’s Best Seller

Amazon has recently started to ship the Kindle to Australia.  The Kindle is Amazon’s bestselling e-book reader, as well as it’s all-time best-selling product!

After the decision to buy my Kindle was made, my next step was to research my options.

I found that the only “official” way to buy one is from Amazon USA, who promise delivery to Australia in under a week (provided they have it in stock).

I did find one or two Australian stockists, but their prices are almost $100 more expensive! I figured they are buying the Kindle from Amazon and adding a big margin to the price – however, they do offer overnight shipping for the desperate.

Fast Australian Delivery

True to their word, my Amazon Kindle arrived on day 6 icon smile The Amazon Kindle in Australia

Many of my friends have asked me if all of the features of the Kindle are available in Australia, such as book downloading, reading PDFs, and Internet access.  The answer is yes!

Click here for information about the specific models, but rest assured, the Kindle you buy and have shipped to Australia comes fully functioning, and able to access the entire range of features our American friends get (apart from the minor feature of “blog subscriptions”, and some eBooks and magazines which are limited in distribution to US and other areas).

Accessorize

Don’t forget to buy an Australian power adapter (handy, but optional, as the Kindle can be charged off your laptop or PC via USB cable.  You can get one at a discount if you buy an adapter at the same time you buy your Kindle).

Another essential is a Kindle cover or case, which is essential to keep your precious Kindle safe from mishap.  The Kindle’s screen does not produce any light of it’s own (which is why it is so easily readable in full sunlight), and so you might want to go for a reading light, which clips on to the Kindle itself.  You can even get a nifty case that has a reading light built into it!

After I got my Amazon Kindle, I went back to Amazon and was utterly amazed at the massive range of accessories they have for the Kindle!

Amazon ships Kindles to Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, Western Australia, Tasmania, South Australia, Victoria, Queensland or wherever else in Australia you might be.

    “My new favorite action hero”

    Vanessa Michael Munroe is a dangerous loner who bears emotional and physical scars, reminiscent of Stieg Larsson's Lisbeth Salander. Like Salander, Munroe is adept at acquiring…Read more

    “lost me about 2/3 of the way in”

    “Couldn’t put it down!!!!”

    This certainly isn't a traditional sappy love story that Sparks usually writes. Sure it has the love story and it's set in North Carolina, but he puts in an element of danger. I have read all of his books and I love them all, however I am definitely tired…Read more

    “Good escapism”

    When I pick up this sort of book, I don't expect my world view to be changed, or to become enlightened as if I'd just had a near death experience, what I expect is to safely escape reality and the cares of the world for a little while. Save Haven is just…Read more

    “Awesome Ending, Perfect Title”

    I am a huge Nicholas Sparks fan and have read all of his books. I have felt mad, happy, and sad, with some of his books, but they are all amazing. I think this is one of his best. DO NOT peek at the ending of this one. I have a friend that does this…Read more
