That's a great price!!! Sorry, I don't own a Kindle, but I'd like to acquire an e-reader (kindle, nook, or iPad) So, I can't comment on my experience with one except from what I hear. And that is...
Cost of each book is lower, relative to that of the iPad.
Extensive e-book library.
The screen is easy on the eyes, has no glare, and can be read well in bright sunlight.
only available in monochrome.
Sole function is a reader and not versatile like the iPad.
By the way, would you care to share how you found such a good deal? I'd be interested at 50 pounds.
Isn't knowledge more than just the acquisition of information? Shouldn't the acquired information be correct?
