My Kindle 2 arrived on Wednesday, late in the afternoon. I was very fond of my Kindle 1. I never had to hold a heavy book. I could read late into the night without eyestrain. I could take 40 or 100 or 300 (and more) books with me and still only be carrying a little over 10 oz.
I debated whether or not to spend the money to get the new device, but when I got a little more back on my tax return than expected, I decided to splurge. I’m so glad I did. This is not just a minor adjustment. Amazon really upgraded this ebook reader. You can poke around the blogosphere and find many more detailed analyses than this. Suffice to say, I’m a very happy customer.
If you love to read, you won’t regret owning the Kindle 2.
