I'm thinking about getting one, but it's too expensive right now.

I like paper books. They make me feel smarter when I have a stack of books on my shelf.

Reminds me of the arguments between Vynil VS. CDJ.

How does it work? Do you have a backup of the book on file somewhere in case the Kindle breaks? I have a coworker with one, and she said she loves it. I findmyself reading a lot these days--I read for two hours over coffee this morning (would have been longer except I forgot the parking meter was only for one hour
), would the battery survive something like that? How much cheaper are the books? Can you get all types of books--like text books, too?

I think those were all of the questions I had about it.

Textbooks are supposed to come out in the near future with the Kindle DX. I really like the Kindle, just don't have the money to buy one.

I like the kindle but I love having the physical copy. Makes me feel like I'm close to finishing the book.

I will get a kindle but only buy books I'm kind of interested in. If I know a book is really good, I'll buy a physical copy or I'll buy thephysical copy after reading it cheaper on the kindle first.
