I just got my Kindle reader yesterday (02-04-11) and i've got to say that it is amazing. I am most definiterly not a computer whiz/electronics expert, but this product is so easy to use. It will definitely come in handy when i am travelling and the "one-hand" page turning from either side makes it easy to hold.

I was given my Kindle for Christmas from my daughters. I had a little problem at first because we have a dish but after some assistance from 3 very nice people at Amazon and my nephew I was set up and have downloaded lots of books and read 4 or 5....I don't wish to go back to holding a big book again. The Kindle is so easy to use and holds your place. I just need to find out how to put the books I have read in to a group to separate them and I will be happy. (lol) Everything is quick about the Kindle even charging it only takes no more than 3 hours for 4 weeks. It is great and I love it . Thanks again to Amazon and my daughters for the most wonderful gift.

Annoyed by "samples" when the 90% is an introduction by someone other than the author. No way to get a feel for the author's style and content from one Kindle page at the end of the introduction.

Most of the time that hasn't been the case--for me it's been only with something literary.

I do love my kindle! Didn't think I'd be a convert from paperbacks...not that I've totally converted. I still want a hard copy authors can sign.

Your retail outlets ARE LETTING YOU DOWN. Tried three Staples and two Targets.
Target customers ARE NOT Kindle "types". No service, no knowledge, no credible on
site product presentation. What are you thinking? Walk into ANY B&N. There it is--
the Nook kiosk....always with a knowledgable associate present and and array of accessories. Your outlets have almost no accessories. It's a joke!!!! Seriously, take
the time to just walk in Target/Staples and request info and a demo--then try B&N.
????? Well, where would you buy an 'e' reader? That's what I thought. I love my Kindle
but will probably never gift one, not when I have the service, knowledge & selection
provided by B&N.

I enjoy my kindle, and it functions very well. However, the kindle is the only E-reader not compatable with library files. Thus everything must be purchased through amazon. I also purchased a "nook" . I find the nook is more versatile than the kindle. If i could only have one, it would be the nook....sorry kindle

I love my kindle BUT do not buy the cover that hooks in to the kindle. It causes the kindle to brown out and you have to constantly reset it. back page button broke. Other than that, I love reading on it!!!

I have had my kindle for almost a year and a half and love it! However, it has been shutting down on my in the past few months and then I have to start all over to find my place once I retrieve the book. It just freezes up and is very frustrating.

I'm not up on the the technology out there, but when I got my Kindle as a gift. I thought you have to be kidding me. I thought you can't teach an old dog new tricks.
Was I surprised. Easy to operate, easy to read. No more trips to the Library or Bookstore.

Just got my first Kindle. Amazon staff were great walking me through the down loads as I do not have wireless. The selection of books is mind bogling and I love my Kindle very much. It is sooo amazing that so many books can be stored in such a small device that is light weight and is as clear as the book pages you read. I am hooked. Thanks Amazon and keep up the great work.

I got my Kindle a couple of months ago - Brilliant product!! This is deffinitely the future for book readers. Only got one complaint about my's not waterproof, therefore, can't read it in the bath. Looking forward to the time when all Kindle readers will be touch screen and in colour.

Best Mother's Day present ever and I am in my 80's. I started reading the evening it arrived 5/12 and have to force myself to put it down. My daughter bought the 3g model so I am free to roam. It is a dream to use even the experimental internet access which became my road map home after getting turned around on the road.
My sincere appreciation for producing an excellent product with services,
Edith J

I love my Kindle. I never want to hold a regular book again. It is so easy to use and I can turn the page from either side of it.

Just purchased my Kindle and saw a few posts that make me uneasy about whether I made the right decision. Time will tell. The right hand page turners get in my way when I am reading so I am constantly turning pages back and forth. It's difficult to hold this thin e-reader but I do like it pretty much. I've only had it one day so I need to give it more time.

My wife and I just purchased two Kindles. They are amazing instruments. The one thing I wish they had is a back light for reading in low light situations. Other than that we are very happy with our purchases. MLM

I received my Kindle for Mothers Day and I am enjoying every day, I am a avid reader and this was the perfect gift. It is so easy to obtain books and actually so much cheaper than buying.

Since I bought a Kindle last Christmas I find myself reading so much more. I can download books, both classics and currents, in a minute and they cost less than in the bookstore. I can also switch back and forth among my favorite books. And I love the way it's so light and portable. It fits right in my totebag. I purchased a pretty "skin" to personalize my Kindle, and people ask me about it wherevere I go. I love it! My only complaint is that I bought the cover with the light so I could read in dim places and that makes the Kindle much heavier. Why can't the Kindle have a built in backlight?
