    I have had mine for 9 months and definetely would buy it again. I ordered in January and got it in February just in time for my birthday.-I love being able to just go online and order what books I want and have them almost instantly.

    Not only would I buy it again, but I want to buy it for everyone I know.  If only I had the money to do that!  I think everyone should have one!!

    I'd buy it again in a heartbeat. I also think everyone should have one. I've convinced my Dad to get one for my mom for Christmas and my daughter will be getting one from Santa. All of will be registered to the same account so we can share books.

    I certainly would buy it again and if I had the money I would buy at least one per household of my family, plus my dear friend Laura.

    Got mine in April and then bought one for my husband in June (he was starting to get a little toooo interested in mine and there are some toys I am not willing to share!). Realized a few weeks ago that I have reached the point where it is difficult to even remember Life Before Kindle. I am addicted to this thing.

    I got mine in August.  Gertie K is my new best friend and I'd definitely adopt her again.

    I had mine a month and would absolutely buy it again!  Now I wish I could afford to get one for my husband, my mom, and my daughters!!  (Then they might understand more when I keep wanting to slip away to read!)

    Kindle is 10 days old today and I would definitely buy again.

    I just wish my parents could have had this amazing thing in their lives (Mom has passed and Dad has severe dementia).  They were both avid readers and would have been thrilled with this technology.  Actually makes me sad when I think about it as reading was such a huge part of my family life growing up and as a result I have a great emotional attachment to the very act of reading.

    I got my Kindle in May. I only wish that I would have ordered it in Dec. instead of wasting 4 months

    Mine arrived Nov 6th and I would buy again.  Would be lost without it because it feels like I've had it forever.  Wish I could buy one for every reader I know.
    That which does not destroy me-has made a fatal tactical error!   You keep campaigning for a azz whoopin', you gonna get elected.  
    It is not enough that I succeed. All who oppose me must fail.         You're never too old if you can still cock your pistol.

    I let Oprah help pay for my Kindle,  sort of.   I love it and would miss it terribly.  I wish I could afford to give my niece and two nephews one for Christmas.  My gr8 neph.  age 8 is already borrowing mine.  I don't let him leave my side though.

    I lied a little, I chose 1-year+ (and I would buy it again), but it won't be one year until Thursday.

    Can I be forgiven for a little white lie?

    You just touch a tender spot in my heart, Xia... My mom still reads, but her mind and eye sight are beginning to fail and my dad stopped reading when the dementia got worse. He just watches tv now. I got my love of reading from them. Books were always a big part of our lives. I see this love of reading being passed on to my grandchildren and it warms my heart!

    I've had mine since January and I wouldn't know what to do without it now.

    I just wish there was someone else in the family that liked to read as much
    as I do so I could buy them one.  I'd do it in a minute.  Most of them think
    I'm nuts carrying this thing around with me.

    Still awaiting mine...

    As I said in some long lost other thread, I think Amazon could give away Kindles and still make a fortune off their book sales.  Maybe a limit of 2 per household with proof that more than one person lives there.

    Goodness, just goes to show just how special the love of books and reading is.  You and I are complete strangers and yet we have something so significant in common.  (I love this board!  :) )

    I did/do my best to pass the love of reading on to mine, too.  In fact, I'll never forget when my teenage son ******************************************.  That just blew me away.

    Gosh, I'd sure like to get that book on Kindle as I've never actually had the chance to read it.

    Angela, Xia -- you touched my heart, too. I lost both parents late last year, my Mom in Sept and my Dad in Dec, and both of them were avid readers. I know it's due to them that my sister and I read as much as we do, and when I got my Kindle I immediately thought of both of them. My Mom was never very computer-literate, but she could easily have managed the Kindle. And it would have helped her get through those chemo sessions, and the after-chemo not-feeling-so-great days.

    Sigh. I do miss them, and I wish I could share my Kindle with them.
