If I had a Kindle I think I might use it quite a bit but I'm not sure! I can read the news, opinion pieces, op eds - you name it, if it's on the www, I'm liable to read it - for hours! Finally, when my legs cannot take sitting anymore, I move to the chair and ottoman, or most often, my bed and read a 'real' book for hours. Reading from a screen is easy, so if I can ever afford it, I"m sure I will get a Kindle or something like it. As Trish303 commented: "I love my kindle for the fact as soon as I'm done reading I can get a new book right then. also being able to free books ..." I would very much like that, living as remotely as I do in Alaska! Libraries might always exist, but like the great one in Alexandria long, long ago - they can burn when civlizations crumble. Even if I can't afford all the current technology, I believe it is here to stay. However, just in case, let's have both!
