    I enjoy reading, and I received a Kindle as a gift last year. A year passed and I've gone through seventy books from Amazon on that device, as well as several others. When I travel, the Kindle accompanies me. I'm never bored on long flights in waiting rooms or airports. I'm very pleased with it.
