    ValenTime- I’m going to call it that now too :) You’ll L-O-V-E your Kindle, that was one of MoMo’s birthday presents this past fall and she is simply addicted!

    I still love the tactility of reading and turning paper so resistant to the Kindle. Like the story of you and your old friend..

    I have a Kindle. It is beyond fantastic for someone who lives 200km from the nearest book shop.

    Enjoy!

    I got a Kindle for Christmas too! They must have been the “it” gift.

    I finally got around to downloading something a few weeks ago – I had a backlog of library books at Christmas that needed finishing.

    I get about halfway through the first chapter and I see at the bottom a little message noting how many people had underlined a passage, that indeed appeared in a different type above.

    Do I really want the whole world to know what passages in books I underline?

    I bought myself a Kindle after Christmas when I didn’t get one, despite having dropped hints. (That’s okay, I got even better presents.) I love the instant gratification of thinking of wanting to read a book and being able to download it right away. I also find that I read more quickly, as the narrow “page” width allows my eye to travel down the page more rapidly. Alas, I have also discovered how to waste enormous amounts of time with the free “Every Word” game.

    And to GingerR – you can turn off the underlining feature so that no one can see yours and you do not see what others underline.

    Loved that story. Hope you had a great time at dinner.

    One Kindle feature that I really love is the search that allows one to tab through results for a word or phrase, in case I need to go back and savor the prose or ascertain a vaguely remembered detail.

    Preppy 101 – <3..

    Jody - I like paper too, but I hate realizing at 8pm that I don't have a good book to read.

    A Farmer's Wife - I imagine it's made a big difference for you.

    GingerR - I resisted and then finally gave in.

    MJ - I have to hold it landscape, because I read in a zig zag pattern, and I need room to sweep my eyes. I will avoid all free games:).

    Austyn - Thank you, both for the kind words and the little feature hint. Dinner was just wonderful.
