I got an early birthday present from my mom--my sister's birthday is 5 days before mine, and Mom got us both Kindles. Now, I have been eyeing this thing since the day that Amazon rolled it out, but the price tag was just too much for me. I kept waiting, thinking it would go down...and it did, but only by about 10%. Still too steep for me. But Mom got one for herself a few months ago, and loves it so much that she got them for my sister and me. Woo-HOOO! This thing. Is. AWESOME. Does anyone else have one? So far, my favorite thing about it is the fact that I can just think of a book I want to read, and then have it IN MY HANDS in a matter of seconds, no matter where I am! Another really important factor for me, as a true book junkie, is that it's going to really cut down on clutter, especially around my bedside table. I usually have a leaning tower of literature in that area, stacked and stacked until it topples over, and then stacked some more. Now my stacks are all contained in one little handheld unit! I love my new toy.
