My DH got me a kindle for Christmas. I wanted it because we go on motorcycle trips and there's not much room for extra things and I love to read. While we haven't taken any trips yet, I still like to read it. I also love the feel of the books in my hands, so when I really get the urge, I pick up one of the books I have at the house or go to the library and get my fix.
Best of both worlds.
I am not very happy about the price of new books though. The ones I looked at were only a $1 less than a paperback. Not like the publisher has very much money invested that the price couldn't be lower.
I also have games downloaded on my kindle, so if I'm not in the mood to read, I can play games.
