As an avid reader, I never thought I'd fall for a smart speaker, but the Echo Dot (3rd Gen, 2018 release) has me singing a different tune. This little gadget packs a punch with its voice-controlled Alexa assistant, which can play music, read audiobooks, and even tell you the weather. It's like having a personal assistant without the salary.

One of the best things about the Echo Dot is its versatility. Whether you're into John Grisham or Warrior Cats, Alexa can recommend books or play audiobooks to match your interests. Plus, with Amazon Kindle books, you can easily read books without having to lift a finger. Literally.

But it's not just about books and music. The Echo Dot can also control other smart devices in your home, like turning off the lights or adjusting the temperature. It's like a magic wand for your house. Accio thermostat!

One downside to the Echo Dot is that it only comes in a few colors, including Charcoal, Heather Gray, and Sandstone. But let's be real, you're buying it for the functionality, not the color scheme. Plus, with a price point of $19.99, it's hard to complain.

Overall, the Echo Dot is a must-have for anyone who loves epic reading and convenience. It's perfect for busy bookworms who want to multitask, and it's a great way to bring your favorite books and music to life. Just don't forget to thank Alexa for all her hard work.

- Affordable price point
- Versatile with a variety of books and music
- Can control smart devices in your home

- Limited color options

Bottom Line: If you want an easy way to listen to audiobooks while you cook or control your smart devices without leaving the couch, the Echo Dot is a great investment. It's like having a personal assistant without the hourly rate. I give it an 8 out of 10!
