I agree about advertisements. I actually had no idea what I was in for when I bought a kindle with "special offers"! Now I have to look at pictures of hamburgers , flip flops, movies I don't want to see every time I open my "book". Congrats Amazon. You can reap the rewards for ripping off your customers in novel ways. I am going to buy real books, my books,that feel good in my hands. And I won't do it at Amazon! Don't buy a kindle
I can't believe all the sheep bah-ing about how you can pay more money to get out of "Special Offers". Kindle is supposed to be an alternative to reading printed books and as such it should never have been a venue for sneak advertising. Wake up, sheep! If Kindle Users united, we could force Amazon to provide real services, such as the right to resell our Kindle books.
