Have you seen this new gadget called a kindle 2? Well, it might not be new, but it's new to me. I think it's nifty and this might be a nice gift for Jimmy because he reads so much. Of course I could use it too and I might get into reading books that I don't normally read. Let me be honest here. I only read whatever I can find on my computer.
We have a problem with over flowing book shelves and this gadget might just be the answer to de-cluttering our house of the many books that are scattered everywhere. I swear to you...this is true...Jimmy has bags & bags of paper back books stored in the building outside, we have so many books. He normally takes books he has already read and sells them to a used book store and brings home more.
Think of all of the paper that can be saved, and all the trees by doing all of our reading of newspapers, magazines & books on the kindle. Has anyone tried it? If so let me know how you like it and if you feel it's worth the price.
I do see one draw back with this device. There will no longer be any newspaper to wrap dishes & breakables in when we move or store them, or to line bird cages with if this thing catches on.
