I'm sur that the Kindle reader is one of the most important and usefull inventions of the XXI century. I carry it always by me. It is my best friend. It would be perfect if one could not only read books but also hear music on it.

Some Kindles do have audio capabilities.

Nah....I have my phone for that. I find (in my advance years) that I don't enjoy having music on while reading.

I'm the same way. As a teen I could do homework with the tv and radio on. Ha, the brain isn't like that any more.

It could be like the guide from the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and also be free.

A perfect Kindle? One that floated in the air in front of me, and had retinal control.

I need one that comes with unlimited money so I have more time to read.

Yes, but you'll only be able to read at the same time if you've got eyes in your toes :-)

I would like the Power On /Wake Up button to be placed on the top of the Kindle Paperwhite....or upper right side. Collections within collections

For example: a collection called Action Thrillers, and the sub-collections by author.

I loved my Kindle Keyboard, and I love my Paperwhite. I take my Kindle everywhere.....

There has to be some way to do it if Kobo has it on their new devices.

I think the perfect Kindle would be a KK with a Paperwhite screen. I wouldn't even need the keyboard as long as it had page turn buttons and TTS.

Add the 3G option to the basic, that's all I ask.

Kindle is (are) perfect.

Although ... on a thread years ago someone (possibly Frank Tuttle?) claimed to own a Kindle which scooped kitty litter when not otherwise occupied. That'd be nice.

I get tired of people thinking a device would be perfect if it were made to their specs. I won't pay a cent to get sound on my Kindle and, for me, that would be a negative. I also don't want to play games, have a GPS built-in, a 12" screen, or color.

I just want to read books.

You know, I think people who want to "build the perfect" anything are often disappointed. I'm acquainted with two different families who each had the opportunity to design and build their homes from the ground up, "...with everything *exactly* as we want it..."

And both families, after moving in, of course loved their homes, but STILL, even spending years in the design process ("I need an outlet here, and here, and here, so I can move my desk under different windows based on the seasons and the view."), they both still had issues.

"Yeah, I wish I'd had this window put 30" farther that way."
"I wish we'd put an outlet in the FLOOR in that room for the..."
"I thought the double oven was a great idea, but I wish I'd put them separately, one here and ..."

I don't think there's a perfect anything.

What is perfect for us today may not be a year from now. Time changes many things, including our needs and wants.
When my parents remodeled the kitchen in 1978 they had a microwave installed in one of the cabinets, never thinking about the day the microwave would need to be replaced. The blue tub/shower looked wonderful in 1981 but not so great 30 years later. Also, it was not very practical as my parents got older and preferred a walk in shower.

Indeed. My house now, the kitchen was remodeled by empty nesters. To gain counter space, they put the microwave over the stove top. Which is fine, except if you have 8-12 year old children who are old enough to use the microwave for simple things.

Things that my son might have been able to make for himself if the micro was on the counter, I didn't want him lifting down, hot, while standing on a stool. *I* am not even that thrilled pulling hot things down from over my eye level. ETA: Because if you fumble it, it all lands straight down the front of your body.
