    Yeah, I use the Kindle app on Samsung tablet and my LG phone. Kindle Unlimited is like free books. Up and coming authors etc. Most of the ones I’ve read are pretty decent out of Unlimited.

    I have used a lot of different devices and the Kindle fire is the best bang for the Buc out there.Sounds like Joe thinks they are just book readers.
