I got the kindle for Christmas, yes as a gift right before K2. No I can' afford to buy K2. that has not stopped me from downloading tons of books. I have "bought" lots of free books and what I thought were just a few other books. I just went and added up my purchases and they come to $100 in just two months. Granted, I have 30 books or so but I can't (read that,"I don't want to") stop. I haven't even gotten to all of them yet. What is your average monthly book budget? I want to explain to my husband that this is normal and NOT too much.
