Most people haven't answered. I think there are almost 6000 kindleboard members.

Actually only going on 4000. . . .but that's still a lot who haven't voted!mlewis78 said:Most people haven't answered. I think there are almost 6000 kindleboard members.
I agree. I'm 29 (really!) for another month and a half or so, and most of my friends who are my age treat me like some crazy person who needs to be humored when I start talking about my kindle.Jen said:I think it takes a certain kind of person to be into the kindle in the first place, and when I was around 18 (and through college) reading for pleasure was not my thing. However, I am 28 (for 12 more days) and absolutely love it. I am surprised though how many of my friends have been unimpressed with it and don't really get why I spent so much 'just to read books'. I love my ipod, but only want it to function for my music. I love my kindle, and only want it to function for my books! It's amazing how many people just don't get that!
I don't know if I'd draw that conclusion. You might be right, I just don't know. I mean, it's a totally NON representative sample. And older folks are, frankly, more likely to be able to afford to buy the Kindle. And probably more likely to hang out here.jimp1947 said:I think this poll is confirmation of the fact that young people are reading less.
I think we read more, but I hesitated saying that earlier here because I don't want to offend younger adults here who obviously do read. Most young people had cell phones before I bought mine, even when the service providers were charging $1 a minute.Tripp said:OK, I just "voted". I will always be 39, but for purposes of polling accuracy, I didn't fib "SIGH" and checked the correct decade. I agree with others, the higher average age is probably due to the "elders" having a few extra disposable $$$.
Okay, I too am 39!!Tripp said:OK, I just "voted". I will always be 39, but for purposes of polling accuracy, I didn't fib "SIGH" and checked the correct decade. I agree with others, the higher average age is probably due to the "elders" having a few extra disposable $$$.
