I've been thinking about getting one for reference-type books like health stuff. I have so many books I really don't want to add to them!

I have lots of free Kindle books. I have discovered some marvelous writers that way. I have also downloaded some pretty awful (in my opinion) books that way. At least with free books, you aren't out any money if they are bad.

With few exceptions, I purchase books for less than $5. And there is a Deal of the Day where a book (sometimes a few books that are related somehow, either by the same author or of the same genre or whatever) that is discounted. Some just happen to be books I have been wanting to read anyway.

Some libraries offer Kindle books for loan. I know the library in the next town over does this, but I haven't checked to see if the one in my town does it yet.

Books can also be loaned to a friend or family member, but for now, the book can be loaned only once and for only 2 weeks, then it goes back to you. I have done this once, when I loaned a book to my mom.

The Kindle Fire is a full-color touch screen, and sells via Amazon for $199; the $79 is a single screen, similar to the old computer monitors. It's great for reading and some very basic games: it's the one my bf has. Last time I was at OfficeMax, they had some Kindles -- you could look at them there at least.

I have a Kindle Fire and I love it!

There are thousands of free books that you can download from amazon....a couple weeks ago I downloaded 43!!

I've actually only paid for one book so far- the rest were freebies.

I have a new Kindle Fire and like it much. I do SP on it but not through the app. I do it through the Web. I also use my computer but at least can also check on SP with my Fire.

I am such a ludite I just want to read the hard copies. Besides books are free at the library.

I have the Kindle app on my iPhone, my iPad, and my PC. Love it! The books are usually cheaper than new, although occasionally I still love trawling through a second-hand bookshop and reading something that is pre-loved!

I have just bought a kindle touch and I'm very impressed with it. I have the app on my ipad but it is much heavier and the battery doesn't last as long. I still have to explore what I can do with the kindle. Exciting! There's a kindle group on SP too which gives useful ideas.

I have a Kindle Touch 3G. I also have the Kindle for iPhone app. I read more on my iPhone, as it's smaller and always with me.

My Kindle Touch is good for downloading the local newspaper, though I do lose most pictures and the comics that way (this may be a problem just for this particular newspaper; others may include all content their print version has).

I have the original kindle and the kindle fire. I love them both. Originally when I got the fire, I was going to put children's books on it. But I found the fire just a bit heavy for long book reading, so that is what I use the original for. Also, if I am going to be without wireless, I pack the original.

I have a Kindle Fire, which I really enjoy. I don't care too much for the SP app for it tho -- it doesn't work as easily as being on a computer does, but the Kindle is great for other things.

As long as I have a wireless connection, I can easily check my email anywhere, play games, check Facebook (I'm guilty), and read books.
