So far I have probably 18 books on my Kindle. I have been going CRAZY downloading books from the Amazon website, however most of my books have been free. I did click on the wrong book once and had to pay $8 for a book that I didn't mean to, but what ever.
I love that it will fit in my purse. I can take half my library with me everywhere. You can also play on the internet with it, but that is pointless for me because I can do that on my phone.
However, I really like the screen, and I like how easy it is to hold. I thought when I first bought it that I might have made a mistake, but really, I love it. It's crazy light, and like I said, it FITS IN MY PURSE. I take this think everywhere with me. I really do need to get a cover for it though, in case anyone that is reading my blog wants to buy me a present. I am afraid that I am going to scratch the screen soon without one. But I am searching for the perfect one ;)
So my point is, the new Kindle is only like $139 now. Of course they wait until two weeks after I buy mine, and three days after I throw away the box to come out with the new one, and the next model. But it is so freaking worth it. And books are way cheaper on the Kindle. And did I mention, you can carry it in your PURSE. But, dad, since you don't carry a purse you can carry it in your satchel, cause, you know, Indiana Jones carries one ;)
