Advantages: Light, fun, useful
I got a kindle for Christmas 2011 and am never without it. I immediately downloaded 18 books for it, all of them were classic books and were free, saving me around £100. At £89 I think it is great value, considering how much use I get out of it. The screen is fantastic, it looks just like the page of a real book so staring at it for hours doesn't hurt your eyes at all, and it is so easy to use. The battery life can last up to a month, so you should only have to charge it 12 times a year! I can't wait to take it on holiday, and not to have to lug around a stack of books. Unfortunately, because it is so light, it is quite fragile. After owning it for one week I noticed that the e-ink had started to 'bleed' in the corner of the screen, without me banging or dropping it. It looked like a big blotch of ink and it started to spread, making the words on the screen illegible. Thankfully I returned it to John Lewis who exchanged it immediately with no problems. My newer Kindle has had no problems and I don't know how I used to get by without it!
Summary: A fantastic invention, well worth the money
