Do You Kindle?


I don't, at least not yet, but I have a feeling I'm falling in love...




I have to admit Amazon's Kindle does attract my attention. It's still a little expensive for me as yet, but I have it on my wish list and will keep an eye on the price, hoping that in a year or so it might go down. Don't tell me I'm wishful thinking, please, I couldn't bear it.




So anyway, I went to visit the Amazon Kindle page and found that Amazon have sold out of the little machine, which surpised me. I watched the little video and was very impressed with it's features, and Kindle was pushed up a bit higher on my wish list! :o)




I was even more impressed and surprised when I saw my historical WWII romance, Broken Hero, was available for Kindle. Does that make me no longer a Kindle virgin?





So if you do Kindle, drop me a line and let me know how you like it. I promise I'll not get too jealous.




hugs, Anne.~

Hi Anne,

I don't Kindle, but my DH finally fixed my PSP so I can read eBooks on it. The only problem I have is the program I have only reads html's and most of my eBooks are Pdf's.

Hugs, Danette

I have the ebookwise and I'm happy with it. yeah got to do some converting but I love the bigger size and backlight! I don't think the kindle has that. Too I saw a couple sites post about new ebook readers so I'm watching that. I wonder if you have all these ebooks that you already own, if you can read on a Kindle if you got one?

Danette, alot of my PDF's I convert to text then put into my ebookwise. I did that before with a PDA, cuz the PDF's often didn't work good in the PDA's. Whats a PSP? A PDA is like a palm, small thing (I hated the size, strained my eyes).

I don't Kindle and don't intend to at this point. I read ebooks on my Palm T/X, which is small enough for my arthritic hands to hold comfortably in one hand, and use that same hand to "turn pages." I can read multiple formats, use it for all PDA functions, internet, music player, etc. It has a mini-version of Microsoft Office for updating/syncing documents with your desktop. It's backlit and fits easily into a pocket or purse. If I were to spend as much as a Kindle costs, I'd put the money toward a laptop, instead.
