Amazon Kindle 3
Advantages: Lightweight, battery life, screen
Disadvantages: Bookstore prices, no light
Ever since I bought my first Kindle I have been in love. It has turned me from a nonreader into a reader. The Kindle 3 is lightweight and feels effortless to hold in your hands. It can hold thousands of books and the battery life is phenomenal. Amazon states that the battery can last around a month and I would easily believe that. For those who haven't tried out e-ink yet I would definitely recommend they see it in person. Reading through the Kindle is just like reading from a paperback book and doesn't cause my eyes any strain. I know many people often choose the iPad as opposed to the Kindle but for long reading sessions you can definitely tell the difference in the strain of your eyes. My only complaints with the Kindle are some of the issues with the store. While many books are cheap, some are the same price or more than their paper counterparts. I would think that there is much less work to put these books on the store, so why charge the same price? A built-in light would also be nice for this device which I suppose you can get through the additional book cover, but this is near $50! Overall I have been thoroughly happy with my Kindle purchase and it has gotten me to read more in the past year than I have done in awhile.
Summary: An excellent and affordable reading device
