      I like the kindle but I do not own one. I used to own the Sony PRS-700 but it was broken by a family pet. I dont like the fact that the Kindle is not open source but is prioritary to its own site. I already have books in PDF, EPUB and txt formats that I would not be able to use with it. I'd like to add these books to it via a memory card or download via a computer but the write-ups I have read say no. Add this stuff in the Kindle and it's a combination that would be unbeatable.
