Julie, Falkirk Gadget lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use and better than having a pile of books beside the bed!
Bad points:
I got this one as you can listen to music at the same time but would be better if it had no keyboard like the Kindle but still played music as it is a little bulky like this.
