Kindle
So I’m probably the only person in the world who still doesn’t own one of these things. When I read an Ebook, I download it on my laptop. I’m leery of paying $300 for a device I’m not even sure I will like. I know. I know. I’ve heard. They are the best creation known to readers right now.

I can even admit the other night a Kindle would’ve come in extremely handy. I was jonsing to read. Just curl up on my side on my couch and get lost in a book. Now I have a bookshelf of books, but I wanted to read something new. If it hadn’t been my night to have the kids, the solution would’ve been simple. I’d got my butt up and driven down to BOM. As it was, the kids were with me already tucked in for the night. So I settled for re-reading my favorite scenes out of New Moon, lol. That night a Kindle would’ve been nice.

I am seriously thinking about tucking money away to buy one in the next few months. I do have a few questions. I love to read in bed, turned on my side for hours on end. Is it easy to do with a Kindle? What about outside? It’s a computer screen. Can you actually see to read it if the sun is blaring above? I love to read outside while the kids play. We have a pool this year and I know we will be spending a lot of time there. But I can’t see the laptop screen to write. So I figure the Kindle will be the same way. How is the charging power on this thing? How is download speed of the books?

I know this is a lot of questions, but there is a part of me that totally refuses to pay $300 to read a book. But I am seeing the advantages of buying one. I wanted to hear from people who actually own one and see what they have to say about it.

I really wish there was a place where you can rent one to see if you even like the damn thing. That is my biggest fear. Dropping 300 bucks and then hating the device.

Thanks all!

    You are not alone, I have looked at more than just the Kindle. I can't see paying that much for it, regardless of who makes it. Nook, Kindle, Sony etc. You still have to pay for the books you want to read. For now I'll keep downloading to my netbook and spend my money on other things.

    I keep thinking, what if I drop it? I can drop a book, no big deal. The netbook is heavy enough to keep on a flat surface. An e-reader....hummmm...not to sure about that one. I am a klutz after all! LOL


  2. I'd love to hear the answers too, Esme. I have an ebookwise right now. A little clunky compared to all these new offerings, but it works and it was comparably cheap. I've dropped it with no ill effects, a benefit to its heftiness. lol But I admit I have Kindle envy. :)
