I broke my Kindle.
Have an iPad with Kindle app, but I like reading on the Kindle screen. So I'm getting a replacement.
If my eyesight weren't as bad as it is, I'd totally be one of those people against the e-readers. But, holy $hit, I can enlarge the text on these things and read without straining my eyes, and you have no idea how awesome that is!!
I got the Kindle first, right around the time I was finishing the diss. Everybody talks about how nice it is to be able to read for pleasure again, at least for a little while, after finishing the diss. For me, with the Kindle, that was true on a whole other level.
Unwittingly, the tech industry invented something they hoped to make money off of from the general public but also ended up with something incredibly useful for a minority population.
No complaints here...
