I love my Kindle,
This is THE best gift for the person who reads a lot!
My husband gave me the money to buy myself this as an early birthday present because I read so much. Even he agrees that it is the second best gadget in our house (the first being my iPod!) I love it to bits and always carry it with me (even in it's leather case, it fits easily in my bag)
My only gripe is that even with the 3G and Wireless off, I am only getting about 2 weeks of battery power, but that might be due to the ammount Im reading.
I love it because it's handier than carrying a load of books around.
My husband loves it because there are no longer stacks of books around the house!
