omigosh, I'm in love with this thing! I have really bad back trouble and reading books for me became an issue because I couldn't get comfortable. I have read 4 books in 2 weeks and Im so glad I bought this thing! It's amazing. I have a little one, so I can only read at night when she goes to bed, but let me tell you the kindle is worth every dime! By the way, the 4 books were James Patterson's , of course.
