Almost no one that's replied here has actually used a the Kindle or Sony. People assume they just wouldn't like it. That's odd, considering that most of the people here spend all day glued to a screen! I think that someone needs to defend an ebook reader in general and the Kindle in specific: - Carry a large selection of books in a small space - Get new books at any time, in seconds (the Kindle) - Get a large selection of newspapers/magazines for less money and clutter (the Kindle) The current generation isn't perfect, but it's easy to see how improvements in the screen, design, and cost will make it a ubiquitous device one day. If you like to read and want easy access to a huge selection of written materials, both of these devices are excellent. They may have minor flaws, but they're minor for the average person.

Time to take stock. Go home with some office supplies.
