Succumbing to Kindle

April 27, 2011

Big news: I bought a Kindle.

It arrives on Friday (fingers crossed). Despite conflicting feelings about e-readers, I decided to get one because I’m going to be traveling in May/June (in Italy! with my sister!) and want to read on the trains without having to haul a bunch of heavy books around, including travel guidebooks.

So, why a Kindle? a) it’s cheaper than the other e-readers (the new version is $114) and b) I had a gift certificate to Amazon. Color would be fun, but it’s not worth +$100 more.

Do you have an e-reader? Has it changed your reading or book-buying habits?
