Let Mikey try it! (for those of a certain age that remember the Life cereal commercial).
to the bravest guy in the world! I'll be waiting for the price to come down around to $100. It will, sure as tomorrow's sunrise--but it might take a while.
I like gadgets too. Hey, I'm sitting at home downloading lectures to my iPod while recovering from a virus (picked up in Ozarks from a grandson). But, yikes! (not a minced oath to my knowledge). If you don't mind reading on an electronic screen, why not just use your laptop? My library has expanded since computers: Logos Libronix; Ages; WordSearch; Pradis; P.C. StudyBible, QuickVerse, e-Sword, Puritanica, not to mention Still Waters Puritan Library. Plus, since joining this board, I have discovered tons of great PDF's for free! My working library is on this laptop is somewhere over 7,500 volumes, most of them for pennies on the dollar or entirely free. Going to the Kindle would seem to be a step backward. Although, honestly, my investment in PC-based resources will make me a dino as well when it comes to the next best thing coming along.
I AM DOING IT!!!! I AM GOING TO ORDER A KINDLE THE 1st....I would do it sooner.....but I kind of got into it with Megan over spending this month. So count down 3 days....I am "jumpin" the cliff!.....I will give you guys the PB review!
Is there anything like Kindle that will allow you to unload your own pdf library to it?
, O sort of like this "challenge" I AM THE BRAVEST CAT IN THE UNIVERSE!, really, somehow, it gives me sort of a justification for getting one!
Hate to do the "double-post" but one thing I like is that it IS an independent device from my PC. I like that about this product! No wiring it up to my Mac, no "hovering" near my router. I think those are good selling points!
There's a review of Kindle in today's Los Angeles Times. Go to Los Angeles Times - News from Los Angeles, California and the World. It's in the Business Section. It mentions an important rule: thou shalt not buy the first version of the product...
It looks like the Sony Reader will let you do that.

I know about the "other" Golden Rule, I had one of the first iPods, it was horrid! BUT it is cool to say I had had one, that is part of being a guy, having the first one on the "block"!
GONNA GET IT! Megan said that is what she wants to get me for Christmas, I said, "Cool!"
I ordered my Kindle! Bad news! They are sold out and will have o more till after the 24th!
This is interesting. I am sure hacker types will discover more little tricks.
Opinion: Amazon Kindle does e-mail and more
UPDATE: I am based on some advice from some techie friends to at least wait until the 2nd generation of Kindle. For Christmas, Megan will be getting me the new iPod that will allow me to purchase Albums and songs while away from the computer! 16gb!
Until then you can keep up on developments here:

Reallly ashamed to admit this because it cost SO much but I do read a lot and I am on the move a lot.
I went ahead and bought a Kindle.
I got mine today. I LOVE it. I am tempted to blow up the television.
BUT this is what I want to encourage those of you who are writers to do.
Get your book available on Kindle. The Amazon website is begging for writers who want their stuff converted to eprint.
There isn't enough reformed reading available to download and there needs to be. There is a Sproul book or two but meanwhile people can get all the Joel Olsteen and Rick Warren they want.
As I understand it you get a much larger cut of the money than the other guys give you.
But I think "The King" is super cool!
