Got a Kindle today. Specifically, a good friend sent me a Kindle Paperwhite as a gift.
Time from opening the box to purchase of first book ("To Sail a Darkling Sea" by John Ringo): about 10 minutes. Evaluation so far: easy to set up, very easy to buy books, great for reading. Also, TSaDS once again shows that Mr. Ringo has a solid position on my "shut up and take my money" list of authors.
Oh, and Baen has a bunch of free Kindle books, too. This is both a good thing (Yay! Free!) and a bad thing (for the lovely Mrs. Robb, who commented, "A football widow only has to put up with loneliness for a season, likewise a hunting widow. But a bookworm widow is pretty much out of luck...")
So, essentially, yeah, this is like pure crack cocaine to me. I give it an 11/10, A++++, would buy again, now leave me alone because BOOKS!
Oh, and apparently you can jailbreak these suckers. I may end up doing that, if I can be sure that I can restore it to factory condition and not void any warranties or anything. I would very much like to see what they are running under the hood...
