Kindle Voyage vs $79 Kindle Comparison Review (Video)

For this review I’m comparing the Kindle Voyage with the $79 entry-level Kindle. I put together comparison reviews for each one against the Kindle Paperwhite a long time ago, so I figured the high-end model and entry-level model needed to get their own turn as well.

Kindle Text-to-Speech Review (Video)

One of the features that Amazon offers for Kindle ebooks that not very many other companies offer is text-to-speech.
