Be a little hesitant that I would like to read books on a tablet. Thought I would lack the feeling and the scent of a real book, that it would not be as good simply. Now after plowing 5 books, I can say that it is not true. Certainly a small part of the mys factor is gone, but the flexibility of it makes me read much more and has with me the cheek almost everywhere. It took about one chapter in the first book before I "forgot" that it was not a real book.
I was also a bit hesitant that one would need to use Amazon's own services to get over the books, but can also confirm that it is how good to transfer books via usb cable (which comes with). There are also lots of online services to convert both other e-book formats and pdfer to the kindle format.
Has now owned it for about 4 months, and during that time used it daily, and charged it twice. And the amount of books I've read has gone from 1/2 book a month, to between one and two books per month.
Had easily bought it again.
