Well, I got a Kindle.
We were going up to North Georgia and I was about to buy some books to take with me and my guy said, "Let's get your Christmas present now and put that money toward an eReader."
So I ended up with a Kindle. So far, I really like it except the BUY button is too easy to hit by mistake! I accidentally bought a book I wouldn't have (I was trying to download sample chapters) but it was only $2.99 so I wasn't out much money. And supposedly we learn from experience.
On the plus side, I was able to use it immediately and for a tech wishIwere like me, that's saying a lot.
I read some book samples, downloaded a few books and hey, presto! I had something to read!
