Advantages: Syncing to your phone and not having to take 6 books on holiday!
Disadvantages: Poor internet functionality
I've had a kindle since they very first came out and i absolutely can't live without it now. I was a little worried that i would miss the thumbing through of a book, the touch and smell of the paper but when our first holiday came round and i had 4 books to fit in my suitcase along with 6 pairs of shoes etc i realised the beauty of this device. Not only did i only have to pack 1 item, with many books in but also if i saw one adverstised that i fancied or i ran out 10 days into our holiday i could just up load another one, pretty much wherever i was! Also if i had 3 chapters left of a book just before i was going it wouldn't mean taking a book that i would be finished with by the time we took off!
The best thing is the syncing with my iphone, i can pull out my phone and read my book on the train or on the bus and then when i get home it automatically syncs with my kindle (vice versa) and i'm at the right page, amazing!!
The internet functionality is poor but if your desperate you can use it and i did back before the iphone, now i never use it other than to download.
Summary: Space, time and weight saver for the avid reader.
