My wife and I both have them and like them a lot. They are great for run of the mill books, mysteries etc. You can keep literally thousands of books on them and an unlimited amount more at Amazon. Classics are mega cheap. My wife really likes romance novels and can download and start reading another as soon as she is finished with one. The only caveats I would have are these: if you and he like books with illustrations they show up very poorly on a Kindle eg maps in a history book. Second, you cannot see the screen well in bright sunlight and they are not backlit. ( I can read them well though in dim light because you can make the print large.)
