The use of the Kindle in third-world countries is one of the smarter ideas I have read about in the recent weeks. When people in the United States donate reading book and textbooks to children in countries like Ghana are only able to provide one copy. With the Kindle, you can share share the same textbook with other Kindle users to a certain extent. Not only  is the price to purchase the book cheaper, but the books do not store up space that can be used by schools to put in other equipment. The Kindle also gives children access to the Internet, so they can be informed on other news in the area and increase the level of education that they are currently receiving.
