The Kindle

So I've looked at the kindle every now and again and thought about buying one. To have as many books as I wanted all stuck on one little light weight screen sound really awesome. The main problem I have with it is that I already own TONS of books, and they aren't transferable to the kindle. In other words I have already invested a lot in "dead tree" form media.
Also you can't buy "used" electronic books. So kindle books will always cost the same, give or take.
Just a thought as I avoid finishing my last paper before internship.

My wife has a Sony Reader and loves it. She didn't get the Kindle because she wanted something backlit. I think the Kindle has much better contrast.

It would be great to see this as the way text books go in the future. Spines everywhere would rejoice.

You're right, though. The books aren't cheap.
