My husband gave me a Kindle for Christmas. I am in love. I opened it Christmas day. I have read 19 novels since then. While I still love holding an actual book in my hands, I can't tell you how much I enjoy this machine. The text size is adjustable, so when my old eyes start getting tired, I can keep reading. The screen is very easy on my vision and the device is lighter than most books. There's even an experimental voice option, but I prefer reading to myself.
The only thing I've found so far that I'm not happy with is that it seems that the e-versions of the books have more mistakes in them than the print versions seem to have.
