I had been looking into the kindle myself, but like Michael, I have an extra room devoted to my book collection, haha, but one of those would help keep my truck from becoming an extension of my library, magazines in the doors and books on the seat. My dad got a kindle for Christmas and he seems happy with it. Apparently, you can only have one book on there at a time? Downside for me, if I read a book I really like, I have to own a copy. Upside, a lot more portable when I travel, 'course, guess you can't have it on a plane anymore
but good luck with your choice.
