  • I just wanted to take a moment to write that I love this blog. I hadn’t heard about the Kindle until the Kindle 2 came out, at which point I bought one immediately. I am a notorious impulse shopper, but this is one purchase I would never have buyer’s remorse over. The Kindle, in any form, is an amazing device. I love the battery life and I’m able to read voraciously. As soon as I finish a book, I can get the next one in the series almost instantaneously. No more driving all the way to the store or waiting on endless library lists!

    This blog is the perfect companion to my new found obsession. The prose is easy to read and the writer is personable, just another fan like me. Thank you, Kindle blogger. Job well done!
