Hey, my name is Lindsay and i am the proud to say that I have a k1 as part of my family. I just got my kindle in Dec. and I was kinda sad to hear about the k2 but I still love my k1 and I think I'm gonna hold on to her for a long time. I live in frosty MN and I often worry about her freezing while on my journey. All of you getting a k2 keep me updated on what you think about it vrs. the k1. I am so very temted.
