    DH got me a Kindle for Mother's Day. I love it. I hate that he spent that much money, but I love the Kindle. He also got me a $25 gift certificate at Amazon.com. I bought 3 e-books and still have about $17 left on it. I have downloaded a ton of free books too.

    Lucky you! What a wonderful gift!

    I have wanted one for a very long time! But, I have the free version for my iPhone and I love that! If they made more textbooks available on the Kindle then I would most definitely buy one!

    Enjoy!!

    I don't think I'll ever get one, I love the smell of books. Maybe if they could make a Kindle that released the scent of a brand new book when you turn a page...hmm...

    Anyway, my sister has a Kindle and loves it, I hope you like yours as much as she likes hers.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I am only kidding, Penturner - I myself call those novels a mutts book but with the s on the other end. Do read them, too. [​IMG]


    Actually I was very surprised that most classics are free for download. Plus - well I am a skinflint - penny pincher - I have only purchased on ebook so far, but I have 4 pages of downloaded free books and they are books I would not normally "pay" for and take a chance on. Most have been excellent - just finished The Equivoque Principle by Darren Craske - fantastic cast of characters. Before that Atomic Lobster Free (with bonus material) by Tim Dorsey.

    I think it is great that there is an app for the iphone.
