Got the new Kindle about 6 weeks ago. Love it! It’s small and light, and yes, the e-ink is really good. The Kindle came in a box with a piece of printed plastic over the screen which had quick instructions on how to use it. Or so I thought. It was just plastic. The “printing” was the screen.
Okay, so it isn’t sexy like the iPad, doesn’t have colour, no apps and a rubbish keyboard. But, it’s cheap, lightweight, lasts a long time before recharging, and so easy to download new books. And,… nobody else in the family wants it because it’s boring. So it’s mine, all mine. Don’t need to share it with anyone.
