Are they as good as they seem?
I second all the positive reviews......... my wife bought me one for Christmas, and I love it.......
I'm re-acquanting myself with the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and have got many funny looks on the train when I laugh out loud at something.....
Shame you can't buy Kindle books from other people's wish lists yet. Not sure how the Tantra book will go with the Kindle though Beebs
UK, just bought the 8 I'd chosen, thanks
love my kindle to, best pressie i ever received. Am an avid reader and I think I've actually read more since getting one. Got about 100 books on mine, keeping me out of trouble
I'll be looking for it at the end of the month
The Kindle didn't perform too well in this test.
that's a class test.
Nothing wrong with books and I really appreciate them, I'm a librarian and author, my wife is also a librarian. I got a Kindle because we've just had a baby and had to make room in our small house, painfully a lot of books went. So practical reasons mean that I can now store my new books in a lot less space.
E-readers whatever the make won't be for everyone.
The ebooks do seem very expensive. I was looking at Cathy Cassidy books as my eldest is going through her novels at the moment - on Amazon you can get the book cheaper than the kindle download. Then I had a look at a couple of cycling biographies - Lance Armstrong and Robert Millar - same thing cheaper in paperback. Then I had a look for the novel I'm reading at the moment - it's a penguin modern classic so not exactly obscure but they don't even have it for download.
I can see how they suit some people - if you travel a lot maybe -seems a shame as I like the idea of being able to access lots of books cheaply but it doesn't seem to offer that for the sort of stuff I would read.
