I didn’t totally “get” the Kindle. I’ve heard the rave reviews from friends (including trustworthy book lovers) and even played around with one earlier this year. However, I did not fully appreciate its greatness. Until now. Amazon.com lowered the price…I scooped one up and love it! I was somewhat skeptical because I love paper and the feel of a book in my hand. I got over that quickly as I realized how much easier it is to read a book on a 10.2 ounce device than it is to carry around a 2+ pound hardback. I will still buy actual books, but the Kindle is going to really help me manage my overflowing bookcases.
