Recap: $30-$50 Discount On Kindle’s, Two Airline Offers & The Fine Print

 

I purchased my paper white when it first came out (I had another Kindle before that) and I’d say it’s probably been my best travel purchase that I’ve made. I love ‘real books’ but I read a lot and carrying multiple books at a time when travelling is a nightmare. If you use our links we of course get paid, but I really don’t care if you use them or not – Kindle’s are great and I’m a fanboy.

Especially since Kindle’s should be Kindles 🙂

Ok maybe it might seem very trivial but that last point on Kindles kinda summed up why I started following DoC. I really like this blog for the impartial, thoughtful recommendations, with conflicts of interest generally well disclosed. Unlike certain bloggers who just try to push Chase cards and put in plugs whereever possible, I truly get the feeling that DoC is trying to recommend what he thinks is best – putting himself in the customers’ shoes, so to speak. You may not always agree with him, but he doesn’t try to force it on you. Just plain relaying of information, with pretty decent analysis.

I understand this is a business, so I don’t blame the other blogs for selling cards; after all I’m not paying anything so I really have no right to complain. But it’s refreshing and at least comforting to see a blog like DoC in the increasingly commercial travel blogging space. I’ve been coming here for a year or so and I’ve learned a lot from this site, so take this as a heartfelt testimonial. Thank you Doc.

There are ways to save webpages/articles and send them to your Kindle to read offline. I use a free service called Instapaper that will strip out everything but the images and text from an article and save it to your account. You can then send these to your Kindle to read later.

It’s pretty great. When I don’t want to/don’t have a book to read I’ll send a bunch of articles I’ve saved to read later to my Kindle and just read those.

I guess I should mention too that they do have a browser built in but the experience isn’t that great. This isn’t like an iPad, it’s really just meant for reading.
