I Think I Want One: Kindle 2: Amazon's Wireless Reading Device

I think I want one of these. Although I feel like if I get one, I will be betraying my beloved paper books. I'm weird, but I love the smell of the paper and the act of turning the pages. But I like this b/c it's much more sleek: 1/3in in profile, lighter: weighing in at 10.2 ounces, and chic. And you know I adore things that are chic. :0) It's wireless, so all you do is purchase your "books" from the actual device anytime; anywhere; no monthly fees or searching for Wi-Fi hotspots, they download and you're good to go. You can also download newspapers/newspaper subscriptions and magazine issues. It's 3GB and can hold over 1,500 books!

Think of how hot this is for traveling or my fellow, fly NYC ladies taking the train to work. You have your whole library on this sucker and don't have to lug multiple books, magazines, etc. in your bag. It's a pricey investment but the "books" are cheaper than what you would pay for a brand new paper book.

I don't know if this would be the end all be all for me. Paper books will always have a special place in my home for them. But I think I would def like this for traveling. When I'm traveling, I always have books in tow to read and they weigh my bag down. This would eliminate shoulder and back pain. LOL. Do any of you have one? If so, share your reviews/opinions.

More faces to beat to get this too!
