e-readers are awesome gadgets. I have a Kindle w/ a keyboard. I haven't been using it much this year...brain is shifting and I have little focus for even leisure reading. =\ But it's a dependable little thing. I doubt I'll bother upgrading unless it breaks. It has a case that makes it look like a slim hard-cover book, with a built-in light. The battery lasts for a month if I don't use the light!
