I owned a Sony ebook for over 3 years and always wanted a Kindle but felt like I made my bed. I got so fed up with the cumbersome Sony store and ordering the high priced books then having to move the little icon from my library to the reader and on and on.... It was such a hassle. The books were too high and there was no audio books or magazines. Why did I wait so long? I made the plunge and now I can't live without the thing. I am so much happier now. I have my audio books, my reading books, and my favorite Alfred Hitchcock magazine right here in my pocket. No hassles with the Sony store trying to get the web site to log me in, no gasping at the price of a book, no more hassles at all. I am in Love.......
