This is a great invention with some major shortcomings and a few disappointments but overall I think the kindle is a great tool and I will use it for many years to come. I have even heard many say that it encourages them to read more, and that may be true simply out of the convenience that this device delivers. Cons (Minor annoyances) 1. I would like to get all my books in my house converted to digital books. 2. Amazon needs a Netflix subscription model that gives me access to read any book I want. …

I have been using the Kindle 2 for a couple of months now. I didn't plan on buying it; it was a birthday present. If asked prior to receiving it, I would have said that I didn't want one. Not because I don't read, but because I look at a screen all day long and there is something special and unique about holding a book while reading. Nevertheless, I resisted the urge to return it and decided to give it a shot. Now I love it for a number of reasons.      Convenience. …

Books at Your Fingertips
The Amazon Kindle is a great electronic reading device. If you like to bring books with you when you travel, but you have a hard time deciding what to bring, the Kindle can help you with this problem. You can take 100's of books with you and can even purchase new books where ever you are. Connecting to the Kindle Store is free and the cost of most books is $9.99 or less.      Some of the other nice features about the Amazon Kindle include the ability to change the text …

Kindle 2
Well, you know...Amazon wants to change the world. Owners of Kindle 1 you can rejoice...Kindle 1 was the revolution - Kindle 2 is the evolution. I was a first generation Kindle owner and upon hearing the news that Amazon was releasing a second generation a little after a year of the first release seemed disheartening...but after several discussions I began to come around to the idea - we do live in a technological rich society, after all. Shortly after I got to test the kindle 2 I was convinced …

SO addicted to my Kindle!
Purchasing a Kindle was by far the best decicion I have ever made when it comes to my reading! I love how portable and lightweight it is! I am able to store thousands of books on it and it will always keep my place. If I keep the wireless off, the battery will last me a week or more. I read for hours at a time and this helps me with my carpel tunnel pain as it is easier to hold. I don't have to pry open pages in order to read my current book. I also have hundreds of free books on it, many of …

It's been a long time coming for me, but I now has it!      I've been reading books on my phone for some time now.  It's just easier than carrying around hardcovers or making sure I don't spill too much on the paperbacks, which seem to have a magnetic pull towards paper.       Kindle is a great substitute for any other on the go reading medium.  It's easy to load and open books on the device, as well …

The Kindle has been the king of the ebook reader market for a couple of years now. Amazon's sheer market force is what helped the kindle succeed as much as it has. Aggressive pricing on ebooks has also helped the adoption of electronic media over physical media.     How did I like using the Kindle? I felt that the screen refreshed slowly and that the device was a bit clumsy for reading books. I must admit that I do not own a kindle, however, I have played with the devices extensively. …

Hey, after months of research and deliberation, I have chosen NOT to buy a Kindle. Why? In southwestern Montana (from Missoula to Butte), it is nearly impossible to get a wireless connection! We thought we had the Kindle 2 (U.S. version) figured out. It uses Sprint and I knew people who had a Kindle who had no trouble downloading their books. Lo and behold, when Amazon launched the Global wireless version, only in the fine print did we find it uses AT&T's network, which might as well be NON-EXISTENT …

I received a Kindle last Christmas and It's been one  enjoyable book after another.  I started off with the :    1) "Count of Monte Christo" (amazing even the3rd time around),    2) "Empire of Liberty: A History of the Early Republic, 1789-1815" (long but still interesting),    3) "Wolf Hall: A Novel", Hilary Mantel (very enjoyable, remarkable story of Henry VIII and the one man         who wins …

   I got one of these several months ago with the hopes of being able to put a decent amount of school reading on it. The price of an etext compared to a hard copy is much cheaper if you read enough to make the purchase of an ereader worth it and after doing my shopping I think the Kindle is the best. I'm sure an ipad will do the trick too, but I hate Apple products and they seem like more hassle than they are worth to a person like me who is happy with their laptop. Anyway, this product …

I just don't know what life style this would be usefull for?!?! Just another screen to stare att...

Ok hate to mess with the experience that is cracking a fresh or antiquated spine but having those words at your finger tips and not the weight of hundreds of books, cheap access to many books, I think we've moved to this as a new chapter.

I love the Android Kindle app. I've wanted a Kindle for awhile, but couldn't justify the cost. Now that my Droid has the Kindle app, I can get all the benefits of having a Kindle without actually having to buy and carry one. I always have my phone with me anyway, so I don't even have to pack anything extra!

I put this on the same level as the sony reader, but it lacks a pretty important option... Expandable memory! But its a cleaner looking device, works great and is simple to use.

I'm old fashion I prefer the feel of the paper and the way it smells!

I don't actually own one but I've heard really great things regarding the comfort/eink vs the iPad. Looking to get one of these soon AFAIK

I don't go anywhere without my Kindle!
review by . May 25, 2009
The kindle 2 from Amazon.com in a wireless device that allows you to carry thousands of books with you wherever you go. It's great for quick reading while in waiting rooms, long car rides (unless you're driving! lol), and  especially on vacation. I am currently reading the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon, and it is simple to just wirelessly download the next book when I am done. I have also downloaded Aerosmith -Gold- album to the kindle as well, and it plays decently for what speakers it …

Dedicated electronic or e-paper readers have been around for a while. They provide all the convenience of reading electronic content with the ease of reading that is associated with reading printed material. However, the high price of these devices, the low selection of books that are available in electronic format, and the hassle of having to connect your e-reader to the computer in order to get any content onto it were all the factors that mitigated against the wider adoption of e-readers. All …

I decided I didn't like it.    Why? Well, one of the main reasons I bought the Kindle DX was because I like to follow trends in publishing and discover NEW titles. However, the book search (conveniently divvied up according to category) ONLY displays books in BESTSELLING order...a search I NEVER use here on Amazon.com!    I wanted to find books according to release date...this happens to be very important to me (although it probably wouldn't be to most people …
