Amazon.com strives to be Earth's most customer-centric company where people can find and discover virtually anything they want to buy online. By giving customers more of what they want – low prices, vast selection, and convenience – Amazon.com continues to grow and evolve as a world-class e-commerce platform.
Founded by Jeff Bezos, the Amazon.com website started in 1995 as a place to buy books because of the unique customer experience the Web could offer book lovers. Bezos believed that only the Internet could offer customers the convenience of browsing a selection of millions of book titles in a single sitting. During the first 30 days of business, Amazon.com fulfilled orders for customers in 50 states and 45 countries – all shipped from his Seattle-area garage.
It is by design that technological innovation drives the growth of Amazon.com to offer customers more types of products, more conveniently, and at even lower prices. Among its many technological innovations for customers, Amazon.com offers a personalized shopping experience for each customer, book discovery through “Search Inside The Book”, convenient checkout using “1-Click® Shopping”, and several community features like Wish Lists (www.amazon.com/wishlist) that help customers discover new products and make informed buying decisions.

If your household is anything like mine you need more than 1 tablet. The Kindle Fire HD 6 is just the answer to that. I am in love with this tablet. It's light weight, smaller and yet is just as powerful. I can stay organized on the go. I can access all my social media sites, favorite websites, email, games and of course read!
I love that with the Kindle Fire HD 6 you can choose different colors instead of the standard black. You can pick between black, white, magenta, citron, or cobalt. I chose magenta for mine.
I have arthritis and my hands tend to cramp easily and quickly. I have no problem holding this kindle for long periods of time. If you are in the market for a new tablet you can't go wrong with a Kindle Fire.
