Does anyone use their Kindle to listen to music while they are reading? Do you find adding music easy?
Ditto on the above: Kindle for reading; I-Pod (and/or CD's, or tapes, or actual records) for music. My thought is that it uses WAY too much space, and can't hope to duplicate the sound quality of the I-Pod...particularly when the latter is sound-docked in the BOSE system for same.Linda Cannon-Mott said:I only use mine for reading, I use my i-Pod for music.
And you thought I was a geek!!!!magehammer said:I put the Dungeons and Dragons soundtrack on mine which is 24 instrumental songs to be used as background music at the gaming table. It works great for reading fantasy novels on the Kindle as well.
I find reading to instrumental music, Raiders of the Lost Ark soundtrack, Conan the Barbarian soundtrack, Star Wars soundtrack, etc. adds an additional layer to the reading experience.
Transferring music is as easy as plugging in your Kindle to your computer and dragging MP3s from your music to it.
I have a 4 gig card, so I have no problem with room.
Mmmmmm...... icing!Vampyre said:While the kindle can play music, that isn't it's primary purpose. There is no way it can compete with gadgets designed for playing mp3s. I just look at it as a little extra icing on an excellent product.
From my point of view the only other MP3 player that can compete with the 120GB iPod (space/price ratio) is the 120 GB Zune. Beyond those two most of the MP3 players don't even have enough room for all of my music (I currently have 14.81 GB's worth of music on my computer, and I have at least 100 more cd's to put on it still), the few that do have enough room for my music cost way too much, and leave very little room for video.Vampyre said:While the kindle can play music, that isn't it's primary purpose.

Or I could use a pair of Sennheiser headphones. http://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-HD-202-Headphones/dp/B000065BP9/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1227842894&sr=1-7Bacardi Jim said:Orrrr.... you can put on an album or CD on the "stereo" and nestle down in your chair in the adjoining room and read/listen the day away without nasty bugs in your ears.
