My New Best Friend The Kindle3

Kindle Wireless Reading Device, Wi-Fi, Graphite, 6" Display with New E Ink Pearl Technology
A few months ago my friend Leslie got herself a Kindle Since she was like me finding her shelves over stuff with paperback books.I was still on the fence about ereaders I love to go in to the book store and browse the shelves and look at the cover art.I didn't know If I could see my self reading from a machine. Over the last few months I have enjoyed listening to Leslie tell me all the neat books she found for free and how much fun it is to use. The instant gratification of having a new book dowloaded is really the key here. Once I decided I wanted one the question was Which one? The Nook had just come out with the Nook Color and it had some cool features such as coupons for Starbucks when you go to the localB&N and free books as well. But the downside for me was I don't like touch screen devices. So when hubby asked me what I wanted for Christmas I said I just want a Kindle. He wasn't able to get it ordered in time for Christmas,due to his work schedule so it arrive today. I did recieve a Amazon gift card from my in laws which I saved it for the big day. Once I got it all set up I went to work downloading the free books I wanted from the free list, such as The Traitor's Wife, Heidegger's Glasses, Sweetie and The Year She Fell.
With the gift card I purchased a few books that have been on my wish list for awhile such as For the King's Favor, Royal Flush, Royal Blood, The secret of Elizabeth Tudor the Vampire slayer, and Alison Chase's new book Outragesly Yours.
This little guy will be going with me everywhere from now on having some many books to choose from away from home is just bliss.
Needless to say I am just in love with this little gadget it's light weight, easy to figure out and fun to use.If you are on the fence about purchasing one I wouldn't wait much longer jump right and join the fun!
