Does anyone have a Kindle? As an avid reader I am starting to run out of space in my apartment. I can't throw any away as I have too many favorites that I go back to from time to time. So I was thinking about getting a Kindle.
Does anyone have one? What are your feelings/experiences with using one. I'm all for embracing modern technology, but I do like the feel of a book in my hands.
I would only be using it for leisure, not study.
You can give Kindle books as gifts, but I believe the publisher has the right to say "no", just like with the text-to-speech function.
And if you have the right software, you can convert non-DRM files into a format usable by the Kindle.
I have a feeling you're confusing gifting with sharing. The publisher can disable sharing. I know: I have a dozen or so titles available through the Kindle store.
Ordered one last weekend.
Thanks again guys, lots of good feedback.
I just checked Amazon.com. There is a button to click that says "give as gift" on Kindle books.
The Kindle handles PDFs just fine.
has anyone used the new Kindle's recently released? I was thinking of getting the bottom end one, or maybe the kindle touch.
