    for reading. I was bother by arm pains when I read in bed with the Fire. I thought it was because of the weight but I've discovered that it's the action of constantly swiping the touch screen that does it.
       The Kindle e-reader is also better in bright light.
       The Fire is a wonderful toy, though. Not only is it a decent reader but also a decent mp-3 player and, in a pinch, a handy way to stream movies. Lots of useful apps, too.

      keyboard. With four cats coming to visit while I read, there is just too much accidental swiping of the Fire as I try to adjust it to see around one or the other of them.
