The new Kindle better than iBooks?

Amazon recently launched the new generation of Kindle ereaders. Which is an ideal digital reading device for those avid readers who may wish to carry their ever-growing libraries (storage capacity up to 3,500 books) with them, where ever they may go. After reading up on it for a number of hours and sleeping on it for a few days I decided to buy one finally.
Just recently, and I mean recently I brought mine.
The 6″ wi-fi version. One of my favourite pass time is to read interesting novels, be that islamic or on general topics/subjects.
One of the great thing about it is the fact that you have access to a wide range of Islamic content available on the kindle unlike the other ereaders which are currently on sale. Take for example, the iBooks. Apples attempt at having a built-in eReader on the iPad, iPhone and the iPod. This has very limited islamic content on it. Which are authored by muslims, although one can find articles, notes, books written on Islam by non – muslims. Not only that, the amazon kindle uses the latest eink display which is ideal for the eyes, as it does not cause any eye strains after long usages unlike others on the market, especially the iBooks of Apple’s (talking from experience). Although the density of the light can be darkened, nonetheless it still strains the eyes as the whiteness, or the sepia mode still radiates a strong light. Anyway my post here is note down the Islamic content which can be found on the amazon kindle. As i found it quite hard to navigate to my desired materials on the kindle, namely the islamic contents. Here you can find islamic contents. However when i say islamic. Not all the books, articles, notes are written by muslims. some are in fact, written by ‘anti Islamist’ to coin a new word. so the choice is in your hands. My opinion is, as this is fairly new more muslim books will be added/appear on to the kindle store, it is just a matter of time… inshaAllah

Islam is in the spotlight now more than ever before and this has caused people to question the faith itself and none more so than the new-age modernists muslims, largely from the convert western countries who are hell-bent on reforming Islam and its traditional values. This blog is a small space in the vastness of the internet where the fight to preserve, uphold and dignify the traditional inherent human values, are proactively argued against the onslaught of modernist propaganda and hate. Covering topics from current affairs to life-enriching inspirations, though to the traditional teachings of the pious and the awliyah of the past and the present.
