So we bought my Dad a Kindle for his 73rd boythday, and he just took it to Italy for his holiday with my Mom. He loves it. Anyone here got one and if so, whatchya think? I have a passion for the feel and smell of real books, for thick, quality paper and beautiful type. On the other hand, the ability to load tons of books and other readables onto this little thing does have its advantages.
Even if I were going to buy one, I wouldn't do it now because of the emerging new versions, and similar devices by other manufacturers would need to be examined and compared as well. Then, too, there is the question of the amount of reading matter yet available in this format. Arguments can clearly be made both ways, although one thing is certain: Oprah must die a horrible death at the hands of Orcs infected with the Rage Virus. Yes, I know she's doing a good thing, I just hate her. I wish I were the vampire Spike so I could bite her and be done with it. I just know the underworld would stand up and cheer.
