Yippee! My Kindle 2 arrived!

Kindle 2

 

 

Yes, I'm gadget crazy, and Yes, I'm an avid reader. I bought Kindle 1 when it first came out, it cost $399 but I've saved $900 in about 14 months, so I'd say that was a good deal.

The biggest disadvantage of Kindle 1 was that my kids couldn't read the books I bought, because I wouldn't let go of my Kindle.

I love the Kindle for traveling - it saves so much weight - and I always carry it with me. The new one holds 1500 books instead of 200 and the downloads are taking about 7 seconds.The new one is thinner and lighter, and has other improvements as well.

The really neat thing is that I can have all of my books (or some of them) on BOTH of my Kindles, so now I can use the new one and my kids can read the books on the old one.

If you read a lot - or if you want to give a gift to someone who reads a lot - go to amazon and buy the latest and greatest Kindle for $359.

S.A. - It's fine on the eyes - just like a book, except that you can choose the font size.

I think you should give you old Kindle to one of your kids to encourage their reading...I'd recommend your youngest son!  :-)

Rob - by checking my blog you pre-empted my "surprise" for tomorrow. My plan is to keep it at the office for my two agent children to share, with my rule that Travel Trumps.

The nice thing is that current (yes, the Clive book) and future book purchases can be on both Kindles at the same time, as long as they stay registered to me. So, if you buy a book for the Kindle, I can read it, and if I buy one, you can read it.
