Forget Kindle Covers, Use a Flex Filofax instead!

I use my A5 Flex by Filofax as a portable writer's desk which houses my writer's notebook, my personal journal, and my Kindle eReader. 

You can read more about my portable writer's Flex-desk in my previous post - How I use my Flex by Filofax

I like to keep my Kindle with my writer's notebook because I always forward articles from the web straight to my Kindle using a Kindle 'push' extension on my Chrome toolbar.  I also email all of my edited manuscripts straight to my Kindle so that I can read through them as if they are eBooks, which is a much nicer experience than reading a word doc on my laptop.

It's so useful to have access to all of my research and written work while I am out and about, taking notes on buses and in coffee shops.

I would suggest always storing your Kindle eReader in one of the inside pockets of the Flex, to make sure it doesn't accidentally slip out and fall to the ground when you are carrying it about with you or taking it out of your bag.

If you are contemplating getting yourself an eReader I would definitely suggest getting a Kindle.

  1. Zara - Thanks so much for doing this post! I have yet to buy one; was hoping that you might respond re: my question on the Fire fit. Thanks for researching it! Well, reading all of your posts about the Flex had convinced me that I *need* one. I love the way that you are using yours and can't wait to get my own and I'd be happy to drop you a line to let you know how it goes with my new purchase!

    1. You're welcome - thanks for inspiring it! I try to respond to all questions, so if I'm taking my time its probably because I'm doing my research or writing up a post on the topic :)

      Looking forward to hearing about your new Flex...



Thanks for your comments and getting involved! :)
