Advantages: Portable, great battery life, easy to read
Disadvantages: No keyboard, feels fragile
I'm a big fan of reading, but I often like reading either big books that are a pain to lug round, or
One of the things that really sold me on a kindle in the first place was the size and portability. Its small enough and light enough that I can easily put it in my inside jacket pocket and carry it around all day without noticing. Which is great for if you end up waiting round for things lots! Its also just the right size to easily hold and operate with one hand, weather sat in a chair, or lying in bed.
As a computing student its also a great way of carrying round my reference books and although it doesn't store as many books as some other kindles, or e-readers on the whole, it still manages to store an awful lot of very large books!
The other great thing about the kindle is the e-ink screen, I spend all day staring at computer screens and after some time it becomes hard to concentrate enough to read a proper book, but with the e-ink screen the strain is greatly reduced and its easy to concentrate in the same light conditions you can read a book in.
The only down points with the kindle are fairly insignificant, this models lack of keyboard can be annoying, but the number of times you actually need to use the keyboard are few. The only other down side is a personal problem, it feels very fragile, and breaking it is a serious worry! Otherwise this is almost as good as a book!
Summary: A must have for anyone who wants to read on the go
