    Wow! Amazon came out with a beautiful new kindle - the kindle fire. Looks like a small Ipad. I couldn't resist. I'm on the waiting list.

    Besides the new model, they've revamped last years models. They are now touch screen.

    Also, a Wifi Kindle is now only $79!

    I bet there will be a run on these because Christmas is right around the corner!

    My husband just gave me an I-pad. I love what it can do, but am afraid of the time I might spend on it. Just like this board.

    The new Kindle Fire doesn't have the e-Ink technology. This e-Ink makes reading on it very comfortable for your eyes. The Kindle Fire has color however. So there is a trade off for readers. I will stay with the current Kindle for now.
