Kewl. Btw does anyone use it for University books? I heard they give 'em all in digital format, and I really don't dig reading off LCDs.


A lot of the books i need to read are obscure and not available on Kindle to my best knowledge, but all PDF's that i need to read can be put on it.

If you're in the USA, the Nook is far and away better than the Kindle in my opinion. Try them both out before you decide.

I have the Kindle. It's awesome. It looks just like a regular book on screen. A bit of software called Calibre is great for adding books you've forgot to pay for.

Be prepared to send your kindle back when it breaks. My mum has been through 4 since Christmas. Great when it works mind you!

The Kindle uses an e-Ink screen which is easier to read off of

No, Europe due Middle East.. kinda.

And what's that with Kindles breaking down? I've had it with my xbox360, replaced it four times after breaking down.

If you get a cover for it, it probably wont break. I have a Kindle and love it to death. As someone said above, Calibre is a great program for converting books to different formats and it's free. I downloaded a torrent of like three trillion books and I use it to get them on my kindle.

I'd recommend it.

I wish you were also somehow an art major so you could draw us the face you make when you have to read said books

I've had my Kindle since last February and haven't had any problems. I personally find it superior to the Nook, but of course that's just my opinion. The screen is just like reading a book, so you don't have to worry about LCD glare and eye strain.
