I'm die hard against Kindles! They are evil! And I am scared I might really, really like it.

I've had an Amazon Kindle 2 since November (when it became internationally available) and I love it to death. I take it with me everywhere I go. For Kindlers with Audible accounts, did you know that you can get a complimentary audio digest of either the New York Times or Wall Street Journal? I enjoy listening to the paper while I drive. I can't praise the Kindle highly enough. If you're interested in purchasing one, feel free to ask me anything. You can also join for a wealth of information and answers to your questions.

Anyone else have any other reviews about a e reader they picked up?

Nice, thanks for the info!

Cool, just hook it up via USB cord then?
Comment by Coeus on December 7, 2009 at 8:43am
Yeah, good point, having backups would be really nice. Not that Amazon is probably going anywhere any time soon, but could come in handy if you were in an area where you couldn't get a signal. It relies on a cell phone network doesn't it? I can think of quite a few places that cell phone reception is dodgy at best.

True, Coeus. Not to mention the fact that if, at some point, their server goes down, you'll have lost your books unless you have a backup copy.

The problem with just relying on a certain service for books and not being able to put your own on your device (through means such as an SD card) is that while they may have every mainstream title you are looking for, they certainly won't have everything. I regularly download white papers that apply to my field and some can be quite lengthy and it would be nice to be able to read them on such a device. Even if a service did have things such as white papers, it would be silly to pay for something that you can get for free on your PC.

I'm a long-time Amazon customer, but the Nook is looking a lot more attractive to me than the Kindle. B&N does have a desktop reader as well, and I believe Amazon has it for the PC, with the Mac version coming on board later.

What I wish for with booth readers, though, is touch screen capabilities. Someone showed me their Kindle and it looks as though you have to use button to do the highlighting of text, whereas with the Kindle for the iPhone, it is touch screen. I do a lot of highlighting with non-fiction books.

The SD card sounds pretty good for the Nook, but having your books on the B&N or Amazon server should be enough, right?

Yeah, I had heard some of them had an SD card slot, but I wasn't sure if that just expanded the storage to increase the number of ebooks you can buy from their service, or allowed you to put the card in your computer to put some books on it and then read them on the reader.
