  • Excerpt: The Kindle is even better than I expected. I am reading more because it is easier to use. I can change the type size and it is easier to read in low light. I travel quite a bit and it makes all the difference having a lighter alternative to a book.

I absolutely love the Kindle 2

  • Excerpt: While it can be annoying not having a backlight, it reduces headaches that can come from computer lighting. I read much quicker and easier than having a big bulky book you have to lug around, and you can quickly get books if you cannot go out to the store.

My Amazon Kindle 2

  • Excerpt: I must say, this is one of the best gifts I've ever received.  I have a zippered cover with pocket and actually carry it as a purse.  I can read any place while I'm waiting for what ever!  I like the price of most of the books and even the free ones.  I also like the samples of books before you buy, and it's definately lighter than regular books! love it, love it, love it!!!!!!!

Conveniently Eco-friendly

  • Excerpt: I got my Kindle for one Christmas and I have to say that this was one of the best gifts that I have gotten. I use it all the time expecially since I'm on the train and carrying books around can get tiring. Also I never know what to do with the book when I am done. I hate throwing it out but I dont know what to do. I think its a convenient way to save a couple of trees and read electronically.

My Kindle Experience

  • Excerpt: I received a Kindle as a gift. And I really love it! It's so easy to download books, and its great to be able to get samples before buying. My only downside is using the experimental internet. When I try to connect to facebook on it my Kindle freezes and it takes awhile for it to reset. But if I stay off of facebook its fine!

The Amazon Kindle 2 is far lighter than my normal bookbag.

  • Excerpt: I am an English student with a minor in the sciences. Last semester, I subluxated two ribs with my bookbag. I was carrying four books of poetry, two theory books, and a science textbook. I was simply asking for back problems. Now I have a Kindle. Many major literary works are available--some of them for free from Amazon. One of my science textbooks for next semester is available as an ebook, and I can even choose to buy individual chapters.

Missing backlight

  • Excerpt: Now, I realize the point of the Kindle is to simulate a book page as closely as possible, and that the technology makes it so that eye strain is minimized.  However, I really wish there were toggle option to turn on or off a backlight so that the Kindle can just snuggle in bed with me at night.  This is the main thing I wish were available on the Kindle. Secondly, the text-to-speech option still needs quite a lot of work.

Easiest way to enjoy a book!

  • Excerpt: When we purchased the Kindle we didn't really know what to expect.  The Kindle is light weight, slim and is very easy to download the book you want to read. It is compact and easy to store so you can take it almost anywhere.  To work, shopping or even while traveling on a plane.  If available, you can download your school book - what a great idea.  No waiting in lines, waiting for the mail to receive a book that has been beaten up and seen better days!

not just a e-reader

  • Excerpt: I bought my kindle 2 about two monthes ago. It bring me a lot of fun. It gave me chances to read more books. It is light and easy to carry. I'm thrilled with my Kindle. I find reading much faster because you can adjust the size of the print, so my eyes don't get tired. Ability to get the meaning of a word, fantastic. Downloading a book in seconds. It is not only a e-reader, but I can also plan some words game with my kindle 2.
