Any of you that have the KINDLE, I so want to be you!

The AMAZON site says:

Slim: Just over 1/3 of an inch, as thin as most magazines
Lightweight: At 10.2 ounces, lighter than a typical paperback
I could put it in my purse and carry it anywhere.

Wireless: 3G wireless lets you download books right from your Kindle, anytime, anywhere; no monthly fees, service plans, or hunting for Wi-Fi hotspots
Books in Under 60 Seconds: Get books delivered in less than 60 seconds; no PC required
Paper-like Display: Reads like real paper; now boasts 16 shades of gray for clear text and even crisper images
Long Battery Life: 25% longer battery life; read for days without recharging
Anytime, Anywhere!?! WOW!

Storage: Carry your library with you; Holds over 1,500 books
Be still my beating heat...."1500 books," that would last me at least a couple weeks!

Read-to-Me: With the new text-to-speech feature, Kindle can read every newspaper, magazine, blog, and book out loud to you, unless the book's rights holder made the feature unavailable
I could listen to it in the dark or in the car! YES!

Free Book Samples: Download and read first chapters for free before you decide to buy.
Decide whether I want the book before I buy it.....what a great idea!

Large Selection: Over 300,000 books plus U.S. and international newspapers, magazines, and blogs available
Low Book Prices: New York Times Best Sellers and New Releases $9.99, unless marked otherwise
New releases for only $9.99....what a bargain! I think I'm in love...again!

Maybe Samuel will buy one for his mom someday....I can dream can't I!?!

I love my Kindle. I get so much use out of it! It was definitely worth the money. I hope you get one soon, because they are the best!

You know, a friend of ours let us borrow his for quite a while. I can't say I was overly impressed, but I'm not one to read on a computer screen...I prefer the periodical in my grubby hands!
