    kindle owners?

    I have been reading about Kindle ereaders on another forum and it appears they may have almost got the formula right to make them a good alternative to carrying umpteen books in my camper. I also love books and once I have them on my bookshelves find it very difficult to let them go!
    Does anyone have any experience of these good or bad?

    I too have been looking at the kindle, but the books which I read are not free, so the advantage would be many books into one, I normally read a book aday when I am away so that is about 50 books, I generally carry about 10 then swap the best I can.

          I have bought a Kindle recently and love it. Very easy to use and takes up little space. Have as many books on as want. I like the fact that you can alter the size of the text.
          Still waiting to collect our R25!

            Amazon have got the Kindle working very nicely, and people seem to love it.

            However it might not be suitable if you enjoy seeing your books on a shelf. I tried to persuade John to have one, but when we investigated the books he likes to read, they were quite expensive on Kindle. He also confessed that if he downloaded a book that he really enjoyed, he would just have to go out and buy the paper edition too! So we are sticking to proper books for the time being.

            I do have a Sony E reader that I 'inherited', and can download library books for free (a service not available on Kindle), but I find the choice of titles available a little limited.

              I received a Derbyshire County Council news sheet today.
              It seems that the e-books loan facility at the County Libraries has taken off like a rocket.
              At the bottom is a footnote that Amazon refuse to let their Kindle versions be available.

                  I've had my Kindle for over a year and I wouldn't swop it for the world it is brilliant, if you search Amazon you will find thousands of books that are free or less than £1, I have found loads of new authors I wouldn't have even looked at but with the kindle prices being average 70p I have download oh lets just say quite a lot I was one of these that loves my book cases, having 2 wall prrox 4m x 2.4m h filled with fitted bookcases and still full even after giving away approx 500 books recently.

                  I still love my proper books but love the kindle especially when going away, I no longer need to carry loads of books, when I went on holiday to the US recently I just took my kindle, I read over 15 books but only had to carry the kindle in my handbag a great relief with weight restrictions.

                    I really want one too but was put off by the cost of books. After reading Kipsy's post I am interested again.

                          Hi all

                          Don't forget if you are interested in buying a Kindle from Amazon you could do your favourite forum a massive favour by buying from the link below. It won't cost you a penny more but it will earn precious pennies to help us fund our running costs for the forum and website.

                          Thanks
