I have no delusions that an electronic device is going to play a major role in my and my family’s survival if TSHTF. With that in mind – I love my Kindles.
I enjoy the many conveniences that technology today can provide. This includes GPS, hi-tech cell phones, Blu-Ray, and the Internet. Over the past year I have been using an Amazon Kindle-keyboard for reading several books. I have found the Kindle to be simple to use. With it I have bought and stored many books as well as other documents. Battery life has been incredible. I have generally charged the Kindle about once a month.
If you are not familiar with what a Kindle is – it is basically an electronic book reader. Books can be bought and stored on the Kindle. That is not all. The Kindle can also store music and audio books. Still…..that is not it. PDF files can be transferred onto the Kindle once hooked up to a computer. So – with the Kindle you can listen to your favorite music, sit back and read your favorite book, and also read any PDF you wish. Pretty versatile.
Enter the Kindle Fire.
November 15th I received a new Kindle Fire. This new Kindle is quite different in that it displays in full color and is capable of video. It can do everything my older Kindle can do and so much more. All my books from my old Kindle transferred with ease. Now – I have the capability to watch movies, store and read magazines, as well as browse the web. The Kindle Fire also has access to thousands of apps so I can check weather, my email, and create tasks and reminders of things I need to do.
Now – “What does this have to do with survival & preparedness?” many may be asking. The simple answer is “maybe nothing”.
I just got finished reading The Survival Template. I am currently reading The Tehran Initiative. I have several other books on my digital bookshelf waiting. My point is – the Kindle Fire is a great way to store books – both preparedness-related and not. I also have transferred many PDF’s on my Kindle Fire for future reference and reading.
There are many preppers out there that have bought and stored away several Kindles jam packed with preparedness PDF manuals, books, and other documents. Often packed in .50 cal ammo cans – these Kindles can be re-charged with a small solar system and information can be referenced when needed.
The Kindle is not for everyone but I am enjoying mine.
