Does anyone really want to read this?

Happy Belated Birthday- to me! (and a real b-day wish, too)
There was a package waiting for me when I got home from the library yesterday.  I opened it and found a Kindle, a belated birthday present from my sister.  She's only 13 weeks late this year, a new record!

To be honest, I never really wanted a Kindle.  I love books, the feel, the smell, the sensations, but I'm going to give it a try.  There are a couple of new historical biographies that I want to read, so once I figure the little bugger out, maybe I'll download them and give it a try.  If any of you LJers out there own a Kindle (and I'm sure many of you do), please let me know what you think of the thing.  Pro or con, however you feel.

Also, happy real Birthday to jackiesjunkie.  I hope you had the special day you deserved, sweetie.

Happy birthday, dear heart!

And I promise you, you will LOVE the kindle! :)

Though you probably won't stuff it full of J2 RPS like I have....*g*

I gave up on SPN fic a while ago, mostly I read Glee (don't laugh at me, Roxy) and Stargate SG1. I'm still a little leery about this, but I'm going to give it a try. Assuming I can work it, of course. Never underestimate my technological ineptitude.

I only got my kindle shortly before christmas, but I do love it a lot already!! I just need a nice sleeve for it. It is so light and small and so many books fit on it. ♥

Once I'm sure I can use the darn thing, I'll probably by some sort of sleeve or cover or whatever accessory is necessary.

Yeah, it took me a little to figure it out. The only real disadvantage is that I don't dare taking it with me in the tub. Books fall in, you let them dry. Kindle falls in.... :(

But other than that I love it. :D

*hugs* Thanks sweetie.

One thing I really like about my ereader (a Pandigital Nova) is that Amazon has a ton of free books you can download.

The free books for the Kindle are not impressive. Nothing I want to read, other than the classics I've already read, and a whole lot of softcore porn.

Have you checked out the free kindle 100 on the store page? I've found some decent stuff. Some drek too, of course

I did, but I wasn't too impressed. The amount of classics is nice, but I've read most of them. I'm mainly into history and biographies, and there wasn't really anything there that appealed to me.
