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.
