We are moving towards more touch screen style e-readers, this market is about to explode. But I think a Kindle will keep me happy for at least 5 years.

And then there's the Kindle app for the iphone which i use all the time.

Battery tests show the Kindle battery fully charged to last a week! Also it comes with a USB cable and an AC USB adapter so you can recharge it by computer or wall.

It's also easy to use mobibook to convert html/pdf/text to kindle format and drag and drop audio books into the Kindle via USB.

I find myself reading so much more now that I got the Kindle. I say go for it.

I use mine every night when I'm laying in bed
Haha, Amazon owes me money!


Oh don't be hasty buying a case there are good ones and bad ones. So be sure to talk to me before just buying a case real fast!

You got it pal, I might have to wait till Christmas for a Kindle., But I will definitely check with you before I get a case for it. Thanks in advance for helping me out.

Just make sure not to use a case that has prongs that fit into the Kindle because they can cause breakage in this case and do irreparable damage. The cases with loops for the corners are safer.

Sometime the beginning of November. It's really good so far...it is an autobiography on his life, but Carlin writes it funny and tells funny stories, so it's not lame or anything.

I just bought The Living Dead which is a bunch of short stories and is edited by John Joseph Adams. I could not be happier, I've only read two stories so far but im loving this book so much. And I ended up getting a autographed copied which is pretty cool.
