Ditto....I love it and can read it in full sun or shade!! I can lead or borrow books. I did get a tablet,Xoom from Motorola for xmas and love that!! Especially for my KNITTING magazine!! Angry birds are time well wasted!! ;p

I'm considering getting a Kindle, but I don't really know much about it. (Technology impaired).
Okay, when you buy a book, is it yours forever? And, do pictures show up? And, most importantly, can I buy knitting books? (And here, pictures are paramount). Thanks for any info.

Yes, if you buy a book it is yours forever. You can keep it in your Kindle or you can delete it, but you can get it again if you want. You can see them and move them to different Kindles or manage them on Amazon on your computer.

The Kindle Fire is the only one where you can actually see pictures in color like you want for a knitting book. The Fire is kind of a baby iPad type device. It doesn't do or have all the same things iPad has, but it's often enough for some people.

The original Kindle e-readers are in black and white are are intended for reading books like novels for the most part. They sometimes show illustrations or drawings, but not in color. So if that is important to you then you might want to consider the Kindle Fire.

There are pros and cons to both types. The e-reader is wonderful in bright light, but you can't see it in the dark unless you have a good lamp or added light. I have a book cover with a built in light. The Kindle Fire is great in the dark, but might be hard to read at the beach.

So check out Amazon, too. They've got lots of info.
