So, I bought a Kindle awhile back, and I like it much more than I thought I would. I've loaded more than twenty books onto it, yet it's half the size of the paperback I'm currently reading. Btw, this one, The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay, is excellent, but it's not available as a Kindle book for some reason. It's gotten to the point where I sort of dislike reading anything on paper (it's unwieldy and the type is too small) or laptop (the electronic glow is both tiring and jangling); I only want to read stuff on my damn Kindle! I also bought the fancy cover with built-in book light (shown here sticking out but not lit), which works great. This is the ultimate reading-in-bed device.
