Amazon dropped the price of the Kindle by $70! If you have purchased a Kindle in the last 30 days then you can get a refund of the $70 (send a message to customer service).
I have thought about getting the kindle, but I just can’t decide. Now that the IPad is out I wonder if I would like that more (of course the kindle is now $311 less than the iPad). There are so many free books for the kindle. Plus, the paid kindle books are generally much less than the “regular” books.
You can get a kindle cover that will make it seem more like a book when you are reading it. If you normally wear glasses to read you can just increase the font size!
