I enjoyed reading it and agree. I know at some point I’ll try reading a book on the kindle, but I can’t imagine anything replacing my love for curling up in a real comfortable chair, sipping my coffee with a good paper book to read along side. It’s somehow just more personalable. Don’t tell anyone, but when I was a little girl, I used to love to ride my bicycle to the library, pick out books to read…but 1st, I’d have to smell them all! Hee hee! Sometimes now when I pick up a book I may get a familiar smell and it brings back memories from my childhood. A kindle can’t replace that!

In spite of my general appreciation of ebooks, there are dissenting voices. Here is a piece called Why the Kindle is a Really Bad Kisser. The author is clearly a hardcopy woman. [...]

The kindle is great for a fast research,but for leisure reading a book is so much better. You are right it can save you money and trees.

Since I have to lie down because of my back, I have to hold what I’m reading. Not easy for 900 page books, which aren’t usually in Kindle format. That may cause me to get a Nook if I get a real reader because it’s supposed to have a curved, textured back that feels good in the hand.

It’s only a little bigger than a 17″ laptop.

I didn’t think I’d ever have a use for an MP3 player but now I use my Cowon all the time. I even read some books on the 2″ screen. They were PDFs for review and I converted them to text. No Kindle yet but I can read the books on another ancient device. I like books better also.

That I needed to have and hold the CD and the liner notes….until I made my first purchase on Itunes. Now I LOVE digitized music (and I am a musician by trade!) I can find more cool music for less than ever before.

I like the idea of the Kindle (I like the idea of trying to spare some trees since no one wants to make paper out of hemp!), and I like the idea of the convenience of the Kindle as with the Ipod and digitized music.

I was gearing up to buy a Kindle and then was given an Ipad and I am not looking back! I may never buy a paper book again. Again, I used to be the guy who wanted to hold the book etc. etc. but there is something about the Ipad that actually lets me disappear even further in the book than with a real paper book. The Kindle does not accomplish this disappearing act as well in my opinion.

And the Ipad allows me to work with a book a lot easier (notes etc. etc.). As I am right now doing with a book on poetry.

But I don’t see the death of real books anytime soon! I am surprised at how quickly I have adapted to digitized reading and music. Much quicker than ever thought I would. Interesting…

I was wondering while reading if the Kindle had too small of print for aging eyes.

I think you saw the advertisements because you downloaded some sort of “deal”. I’ve never had an advertisement on my Kindle and it’s connected to Wi-fi all the time.
When you have Prime you can borrow books on your Kindle. I like that especially if it’s a book you really don’t want to keep on your shelf but you have to read it. Also, I use it to listen to audio-books. Not the text-to-speech, but from Audible.
I would also point out that those who have sight issues (I have an aunt with macular degeneration) can make the font size really large so that they can read it. You can’t do that with a regular Dicken’s novel.
