I like the Kindle - sort of

Nancy White

Although I have not yet used Amazon’s new Kindle ebook reader, I like the idea of it. Having a dedicated device with a long battery life that allows me to read books, newspapers and blogs sounds great. I can imagine using it first thing in the morning to read the headlines and some stories from my favourite newspaper and several blogs that I follow. Being able to download books on demand and keep them on the reader also appeals - I normally have several books on the go at any one time.
