AMAZON KINDLE 2
The Amazon Kindle is a device designed to make electronic reading possible (and hopefully convenient, easy, enjoyable, and perhaps better -- for some, now, for others, eventually -- than reading from dead, smashed down trees). It is thin and lightweight, and uses "electronic paper," which should be easier to read than a computer screen. There are more than two hundred thousand books available now. Newspapers, magazines, and blogs are also available.
Version 1 of the Kindle sold pretty well, and Version 2 of the Kindle begins selling today.
The Kindle loads books wirelessly and automatically in about a minute, with the cost of transmission already included in the book's price (which can be lower than the printed book).
It features text-to-speech, so listening to the book is also an option, which in some cases can be invaluable.
Here's the link for more information (and purchase details too, if you wish):
