loved this from the first moment i saw this..but it's a bit expensive..i 'll wait for a while in case the price will lower..anyway, it's a great idea..for people like me, who when i go somewhere for a weekend and carry about four of five books, plus magazines, plus newspapers, this would be a relief..it would nice also if it would be a little more evolved and would probably add a language choice, so a person who talks two languages can have the selection..just a noble wish..anyway it's nice as it is..

this is great! However, this would be the ultimate gift for my mother, who reads all the time, my question would be how are these books priced and once you have this marvelous invention what is required such as cables?, batteries? and how long the charge if required would last.

I have seen quite a few books for 5.99 and 6.99 for the kiddle. Which is a huge savings because to actually purchase the book it is 12 - 15. Also, once you buy the book it is yours until you delete it. There is not a rental fee or anything to that effect on regular books. I am not sure how the newspapaer works. Hope this helps.

thinking about this for our mother who lives to read, but whose vision is not as good as it used to be. Does anyone know how large is the largest font?
