The Errata section on its own, would need a fork lift truck.

Yeah I know what you mean, there is something nice about a book in your hand, but since I got my kindle I have found the only thing I miss is being able to quickly flip the pages forward to see how far I have to go until the end of the current chapter (always like to stop reading at a chapter end!). Another bad thing is how easy it is to buy an ebook - I now have about 8 waiting to be read, but at least I do not have to decide which ones to take on holiday with me - I can take them all!

It is a shame though that you can't pass the ebooks on to a friend or to charity when you have read it.

I like books too, but i'm definately getting a Kindle too - will be good for when on the train, going on holiday, etc - but i'll still keep a book or two at the side of my bed.

Any views on how this measures up against the soon to be released Kindle? Worth cancelling my pre-order?
#11
I had a kindle and I accidentally killed it a bit. Decided not to get the new one as, be warned, if you intend to get one for academic purposes, you can't cite page numbers etc.
#12
Going for the Kindle too, better equipped, cheaper books, but heat added - I am all up for a price war!
#13
Amazon are continuing to follow the proprietary format lock-down following the financially successful but consumer-restrictive Apple model. I think I will wait until books follow mp3 music and abandon DRM. At least with other readers you can access the library ePub books. Kindle is cheap because books for it are expensive.
#14
Ordered the Kindle Wifi as well, seems better as it has a 4 week battery life. Couldn't see the need for the 3g version...
#15
It's a good price for a nice device. However, I can see it going lower as it is out gunned by the new Kindle WiFi.

Kindle also has the advantage of free Kindle apps for PC, iPad, iPhone and Android. So you can read your books on multiple devices and it keeps track of what page you are on.

Kindle also supports PDF and if you do a search for "e-books" on a certain popular auction site you will by surprised by the results.

Good device, fits in a suit or jeans pocket. Bit peeved as I paid £139.99 only a few weeks ago.

Kindle is good for wifi but do you really need your ereader to have a keyboard? I prefer the look of the Sony reader.

Ebook selections are a bit limited (sometimes cost more than the discounted hardback!) but I suspect this will change over time as I can't see Amazon being able to get ebook exclusivity deals with publishers for too long before regulators step in

If you are buying them, the ebooks for the Kindle on Amazon are a LOT cheaper than those on the Waterstone's website, and cheaper than the paperbacks on Amazon too by almost a 1/3rd (at least for the ones in the Top 10 I have bought).

You probably don't need one but it would be pretty useful for dictionary lookup (new Kindles have the OED built-in), Wikipedia lookup and for searching (searching is pretty useful, for example if you want to quickly jump back to the point in the book where a given character is introduced because you have forgotten whose uncle they are supposed to be or whatever). You can use it for email too but email is a tertiary function at best.

I just checked. It's not the OED but the ODE which is completely different (I had never heard of the ODE). But it should be British English (aka English).

Got mine for the same price at WH Smith (in store) so could play with it straight away and not have to wait for the post! Love it!
