Ace, however, is not.
The main objection that I can see is the steep price. The latest version is $359.
While books are easy to carry, and I do love the feel of a book, the smell, the touch of the paper, the weight of the volume and all that, the Kindle has the advantage that you can also increase the size of the type, and you can have a library of 1,500 books right in it.
But that means I won’t have a handy excuse to go browsing at bookstores, one of my favorite pastimes.
Anyway, my birthday’s not until September, so there’s time to decide.
Have any of you bought a Kindle? Are you happy (or not) with it?
