I just finished reading A Thousand Splendid Suns for my next book group meeting. Reading it on the Kindle was pure pleasure. I'll be showing my Kindle to this group of friends (with whom I have been meeting for over 13 years) next week. It will be interesting to see this hard core group's reaction to this technology.

Whatever, I'm still sold. Now I'm reading The Stand which I read years ago. I always wanted to read the longer version, but I don't think I would have purchased a paper version. Managing a large book is such a pain, but holding the Kindle is easy.

Also, I'm a big Azimov fan. I've purchased the Foundation series to read again. There are other books I've enjoyed and want to reread. I think the Kindle will help me do that by making the second purchase less costly.

If only I didn't still have such a huge number of paper books yet to read! Sign.

I have a stack of paper books that I hadn't read yet when my Kindle arrived on June 6th. Still haven't read them. Have downloaded a few on Kindle and read that version though. I just don't think I can go back to dead tree books for pleasure. I've only purchased travel books for a trip I just took and books on calligraphy in paper version since I got my Kindle.

I can see myself buying books on the Kindle that I have in paper, too.  But, I am proud that I did finish one of my paper books this past weekend.  We'll see what the future holds for the rest of my pile(s)!   :)

I am looking forward to the Book Klubs beginning in January, but I really wish I was still back in Houston so that I could take my Kindle to my Book Club there!!

Send that group over here - we'll help you convince them to get a Kindle!

Really cool to me is that I'm carrying around about 200 books right now - no more finishing a book and not having another to hand!

I still read paper books too but if a book I'm reading is extremely large and/or fairly cheap Kindle-wise, then I'll get it on my Kindle anyway. Anna Karenina, for instance, fits both those criteria. I can't imagine trying to hold that giant up in bed!

Although I am not in a book group, I shared my Kindle with my mom's Mystery group.  I didn't get the feeling they were impressed.  I don't want to read a DTB, but had to buy one the other day because it was not on Kindle.  We'll just see if I read it or not.  I have already replaced DTBs with Kindle versions and enjoyed them on Kindle.
