I love to read. I love the smell of book stores, and the feel of a newly cracked spine, and the way books look after they've been thumbed a few 20 times. I was totally against buying i kindle. I thought eventually people would stop buying books, and those amazing bookstores that i go and wander in would just die out. The concept made me sad.
And then i got a kindle on my phone, and i fell in love to the point i now have a full on amazon kindle 3G. I simply love the practicality of the thing. My favourite book which is about 1500 pages thick is now slimmed down to 1 cm wide. And not just that book, it has a capacity for 1000 books. I probably will never reach that capacity, but my possibilities are endless.
As it's 3G, i can connect to the amazon bookstore wherever i am, and simply pick up a new book if i get bored of the one i was currently reading. This is usually great, but i do have about 5 unfinished books because i haven't gotten around to picking them back up again.
I also love how it just slips into my handbag, in its black leather case, easy to find, easy to hold and i don't need to worry about pages getting bent or torn, or my keys making indents into the book.
The kindle in my opinion is idiot proof, the fact that you turn a page with a button, that your thumb practically rests on as you hold the kindle in your hand says it all. The battery life is brilliant and lasts for absolutely hours. Imagine those plane journeys and all that extra space i save by not taking about 5 printed books with me in my carry on :)
The only fault i have with it is in the dark you can't actually see anything on the screen, prompting me to go spend an extra £45 on a case with a Backlight in it. but even then, it was money well spent and i'm truly over the moon with it.
