OK, so since this is the reading thread, I'll ask this here.  Does anyone have a Kindle (from Amazon) and if so, what do you think of it?<br /><br />Lori

My sister's husband's father ('s brother's cousin's uncle's college roommate) has one and he loves it. She thought about picking one up because he raved about it. I think it's for morons.<br /><br />1) You don't actually own any of the books you purchase. ie, you can't sell them once you're done with it.<br /><br />2) The book costs are outrageous. It's not even like they have to spend money on printing paper or crap and the damn paperbacks still cost something like $5-$6. You're only getting a couple bucks off tops and that's after you've bought their expensive ass machine. You'd think they'd cut you a real discount.<br /><br />3) Technology will always get better. Never be a first adapter and always wait for the followup version.

<br />On the Kindle - if you're a voracious reader, or are thinking of giving it to someone who is, I can't see them liking it (too expensive per book, as Henwy pointed out).  However, for someone with unique needs, esp. visual impairment, it could be just the thing.  I imagine it can display the text in a large font - heck, I'd hope it can actually read the text aloud.  There also may be a good selection in foreign languages.<br /><br />

I don't trust anyone who continues to write books after they're dead. All it means is someone has more greed than sense.
