If you don’t have a Kindle, a free app is available for computers, laptops, and smartphones through all app stores on your device. I’ve stopped bringing printed books on my hikes due to their weight, and highly recommend using an e-reader app like Kindle on your smartphone to save on weight. Using the Kindle app allows me to bring several books with me at a time.
