hey there,i just got my kindle last week & i love it! i got mine from amazon.com but the basic model not the dx,the screen is easy to read off does'nt hurt my eyes at all but you will need a lamp if your reading at night as it's not backlit. easy to use set to go straight away & tons of books to choose from. i did notice in an angus & robertson flyer that there is an aussie version out thats called something else might be worth checking out...but i am super happy with the kindle & now i don't have to find somewhere to store all my books, it's definatly the way forward think of all the trees we can save....hope that helped a bit j9
Thanks for that! Yeah I saw the Angus & Robertson catalogue also and that's what made me think more seriously about it. I think though that I would like the bigger screen...more dollars, but that's where having a birthday very close to christmas comes in handy LOL.
I'm glad you mentioned the lamp as I hadn't thought of that. I think you might be able to buy a clip on one though?
Anyone else got any other info to share?
