About a month ago I switched over to Google Chrome for web browsing, and I'm very happy I did. And recently a friend made me aware of the "Send to Kindle" Chrome extension. I wasn't sure how much I'd use this extension, but I installed it anyway. I find I use it a lot. It makes sending an article on the web to the Kindle a snap, and I miss it when the only option to view an article in its entirety is PDF which the extension won't send automatically to the Kindle.
But why would I want to read anything on the Kindle that I can read in my web browser? First of all, I very often want to read things of interest later. Sending the article to my Kindle lets me read it when I'm relaxing in the evening or at other convenient times. Second, the Kindle is great for reading period. It's not a great web browser, it's not a phone, but it's just great for reading. As I read it's so easy to look up unfamiliar words and add to my vocabulary. It's easy to add notes. And for longer articles, it keeps my place so I can pick up right where I left off. With my busy schedule that's important. And it keeps things "in my queue." When I read them, I either save them to some collection if they are that good or delete them and they're gone. My reading is efficient and organized.
