LOL

I want an e-reader.

So, if you have an e-reader will you please tell me what you have and if you like/love it? Is it easy to use? Easy to read? Easy to get books on? And anything else you can add would be greatly appreciated!

Dh says the Kindle is good (we don't actually have one, but he was reading up on them....) he says the downside is that you have to have an active subscription for it.

It is going to be my late Christmas present (yay for taxes LOL) But I am so worried that I am going to get the wrong one and it will suck....they are still fairly new and I am not very electronical.....erg!

I have a kindle and my MIL has the sony reader.  Kindle hands down.  The sony is not as user friendly.  I can download wirelessly from anywhere with the kindle.  She has to plug her sony into her computer to download. 

If you buy the kindle make sure to turn the wireless feature off unless you're downloading books.  The battery lasts forever when the wireless is turned off.

Pretty much a little device that can hold a ton of books and you can read all of the books on LOL

Google it! They are pretty cool!
