#3dchicks Entry-Level Kindle Comes with 8GB of Storage Now? #amreading

Kindle 8GB

Over the past few months Amazon has started shipping 8GB versions of the entry-level Kindle, which is currently on sale for $64.99, and they aren’t even charging extra for it.

The device originally came with 4GB of storage space, and that’s still what Amazon advertises on the official product page and on their Kindle comparison tables.

However, there are a number of reports at reddit and in recent reviews posted at Amazon that state the Kindle comes with 8GB of storage space—it even says so on the box.

The Kids Kindle is the same model and it has always come with 8GB instead of 4GB. Maybe they overproduced it and are now selling them without the kids branding? Or perhaps they’ve simply switched to 8GB for all versions of the entry-level model?

Either way it’s a nice free upgrade.

#3dchicks Do you keep an e-reader updated to the latest firmware?

E-Readers normally update themselves when a new firmware update is available. This process normally occurs automatically when you are connected to WIFI or a hot spot. There are only a handful of devices that make you visit their website to download the patch file and load it on yourself, but they tend to be older devices, others only run an update if you visit the settings menu and fetch it. Do you prefer to have your e-reader updated automatically or not at all?

The run of the mill update often introduces new features,  enhancements or bug fixes  Amazon,  Kobo, Supernote and Onyx Boox tend to do it on a monthly or bi-monthly basis. Boyue, Sony, Tolino, Pocketbook and Remarkable do it less frequently. Barnes and Noble might do it once or two a year, if that. Most issue them automatically via WIFI, others give you a nag screen, prompting you to run it manually. Older devices from Bookeen, for example, ask you to update by visiting their website, downloading the file and then sideloading it on your device.

Series: The Legion, Book 2

Genre: Paranormal Romance


To save her, he’ll sacrifice everything.

Born a dream reaper, Steele Ezo, a powerful half dragon, half human, is struggling to find his place in the Drakon hierarchy. He is ready to accept his fate until he realizes the next victim on the Reaper’s hit list is the sexy thief who’s caught his eye.

She’s supposed to die.

He’s forbidden to stop it.

But their inexplicable connection makes it impossible to step aside.

Abandoned by her family and abused by local enforcers, Ravyn Walsh lives life on her own terms. She’s created an underground sanctuary for the oppressed citizens of Burgess, and she needs funds to keep it running. When a lucrative job—stealing an ancient dagger—lands in her lap, she doesn’t hesitate, not even when a smoldering tattooed stranger attempts to stop her.

A dagger that can raise the dead is a powerful tool—one that could change the course of history. As they fight to keep the dagger out of the wrong hands, Ravyn will be forced to embrace the truth of her heritage, while Steele will find himself torn between saving a life that isn’t meant to be saved and denouncing the power he was born to wield.

Book Review

Sylvia Hubbard
Trust brought a lot in the short amount of time it took me to read this book, which was a couple of days. I couldn’t stop wanting to know what was next. Brilliant storytelling, characters and plot.
Ms Lawson brings page-turning intrigue and I highly recommend you grab up this book now.


I don’t think the pandemic was real to me until our district announced school closures. That same day, I bounded up the steps to my local library, on my way to return books, and found a sign on the front door. It said that the library was closing in a few hours. Indefinitely.

Though this made perfect sense, I felt a twinge of panic. My daughter and I typically found ourselves at the library two or three times a week, dropping off books, picking up new ones. What would we do with ourselves now? How would we get the next book in the Hilo series? What would I read??

On the other side of the circulation desk, library staffers were grappling with their own questions. What would it mean to close the library? How long would it last? How would they sustain themselves? And how could they continue to (safely) serve the community?

A new survey has revealed that people in the UK have almost doubled the amount of time they spend reading books since lockdown began, but instead of dystopian fiction readers are turning to the “comfort” of crime and thrillers.

Nielsen Book’s research found that 41% of people said they were reading more books since Boris Johnson imposed the measures on 23 March. According to the nationally representative sample of 1,000 adults, surveyed from 29 April to 1 May, the nation has also increased the amount of time it spends reading books from around 3.5 hours per week, to six. Just 10% of adults said they were reading less.
