i would love one,and have come close to actually buying one but then i think i would miss going into waterstones, spending hours browsing and buying books...
then getting home and exploring them,and holding a book and turning the pages,theres nothing better than the smell of a new book ;)

i would love to know how you get on with it,its shame i cant try one out and see how i go.

You are absolutely right that there is something magical about a book. And i love spending hours in book shops browsing too. But the Kindle is fantastic! Its light and lives in my handbag without weighing my bag down, so i can read my current book whenever i get a few minutes, and its so easy and quick to download books from Amazon, and cheap too.

Im thrilled to bits with the kindle, it wont stop me buying books but its just so convenient to have and use. The only thing that i dont like is that it isnt backlit, but then neither is a real book. It would just make reading it easier in poor light if it was. I guess that would be a big drain on the power though, so would be a useful option to switch on and off as required. Battery life is very good though, i think i read that the battery should last a month before needing to be recharged. I certainly havnt had to recharge it yet and ive had it a week.

I read a lot on holiday, so its going to be a big advantage to be able to take a dozen books with me, without having to worry about the baggage weight.

I'm soooooooooooo jealous but have promised myself a Kindle for my b/day in a few weeks IF I stay on track with my weightloss lol :))
I have the kindle app on my phone and a couple of free books that I find amusing are 'Blood Sweat and Tea' and 'More Blood, more sweat and another cup of tea' both by Tom Reynolds. Basically they are his memoirs as an ambulance driver in London. I also have downloaded the free versions of the Jane Austen classics, they are my old friends :)) Enjoy your Kindle xx

so ive been looking at the kindle and also the ones they have in waterstones... just harmless browsing at the moment ;)

dont know which one i like best... i have a waterstones card and collect the points so thats a plus for waterstones :rolleyes:

im trying to weigh up whether i would use it that much and would i rather spend £100+ on that or £100+ on actual books hmmmm

Compare the prices of the Kindle books on Amazon, to ebooks on Waterstone, half the price through Amazon, easily half price. And that makes the Kindle a real bargain.

I have a Sony Ereader and absolutely love mine. I have never read so many books since buying it. It goes everywhere with me, so whenever I get 5 mins I can have a quick read. Fantastic! I love the Sophie Kinsella books and Stieg Larrson Millenium Trilogy.
