Talking Kindle review

I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I certainly am NOT going to stop going to the library to get free books. I do love the feel of an actual book but the Kindle is pretty dang cool!

It might be the small things but, for instance, I read a lot on my lunch hour from work and having the Kindle lay flat and not have to bend the binding of the book or put something on it to hold it open while eating with 2 hands is awesome! lol It is nice to just hit the arrow and flip to the next page. It is cool to see your progress in the book in % read at the bottom.

Any questions, just ask! Anyone else have an e-reader?

I am tempted... Being able to eat easily with a book is very appealing.

I think you would like it Rudi. As long as you think of it as "in addition to books" experience, then it rocks! It would be quite expensive to have to BUY all your books! I will use it for "favorite author comes out with a book and I need it RIGHT NOW type of thing", cheaper than buying the hardback book. I will ask for Amazon gift cards for my birthday for sure! And there are a lot of free books out there too. I plan to alternate and still make plenty of trips to the library but it is nice to have an alternative. You would do well if having one book reading at home and your Kindle with you on the go in your bag. And then we could swap books too! Have you researched at all for Kindle vs Nook vs other e-readers?

I got the sony ereader last year and I love it too. You can also download books free from your library with a lot of the readers and they just disappear after the allotted time that you borrow them for. (I haven't done that yet or figured it out, but have heard you can).
