    My birthday is coming up next week and my husband presented me with my present today... a KINDLE!!!!! For an obsessive reader like myself, there could be no better gift! I often find myself with two or more books going at a time, so a kindle is perfect for me, no lugging numerous books around or trying to find the one I left laying by the couch or in the garage or next to the bed, etc. I have already gotten two titles that I was unable to get at the library or bookstore (one was out of print, the other was only available in hardback and was therefore $25 if I wanted to order it). Hurray for the kindle!

    I love that a lot of the classics are free. I haven't read many of them since high school if at all. I even got the complete works of Shakespeare and most of the founding documents of our country. This is amazing!

    *gasp* traitor!! I refuse to get one on principle.. they dont smell like books.. they dont look good on my bookshelf.. and its just one more glowing rectangle to stare at.. I read to get AWAY from my 20,000 screens I stare at every day...

    Am jealous of the freebies though.. I just spent $13 to buy Dracula..

    Quote:They don't glow. The screens are dark, they look like paper. It's the future! And you don't put it on your bookshelf because you have a thousand and one books in it!
