Thought we didn't get to talk much, great to see you in Ventrilo!
I started writing the whole story out about the Kindles, I guess I never posted it and it got closed or something. I'll have to do a follow up in my Kindle post.
I give it way thumbs up, having the locations to download tens of thousands of full novels as we do today, and good software like that Calibre Ebook Software, any ebook machine would be nice, but I love the features, clarity and other stuff talked about - and with the lighted leather cases, they have a good thickness to them and feel like a book in your hand.
I haven't had time to read in 12 years or more, been doing audiobooks mainly, but I'm finding sometime to read again, even if its mainly the dozen or so national new papers waiting for me each morning. If you ever need details, you likely say the link at least to the Kindle 200 page user guide in pdf and Calibre (pronounced like a bullet term) and see the power of these tools.
Great Youtube Videos on each, I'm a big fan of searching Youtube first, look for real reviews and people's feedback. Always find what I'm looking for too - gotta love Youtube.
