i have a simpler version and different brand of the kindle that can only be bought in the U.S.
i love it. i love it because i can't go to the library for long with my son and im the kind of person to browse when im there. so you can browse at home and skip the library. but if your a library go-er, you may not want to spend money on books anyway.. i dont generally buy books, but now im forced too.. so thats a downfall, and if i was gonna buy a book id like it to physically be on the shelf. but you tell yourself kindle books are cheaper and you'll always have that book in your computer.. mt other beef is
unlike a physical book, if it dies (which battery's can be faulty or any number of issues) you can't read for the day if your out. ive on multiple occasions found that i had forgotten to charge or the charge didn't take and was left totally bookless for hours when i had expected to do some heavy reading.
that being said, if my reader crapped out on me, id buy a kindle in a heart beat.

I have had a Kindle for about a year now, and I love it.
My fiancee and I both have eyesight problems when reading computer screens for too long, so the Kindle is great! No backlight! And because its actually electronic ink, it never strains my eyes. I have a cover with a light in it, so I can read at night in bed anyway, and easily.
Books are also cheaper than buying paperback when buying Kindle e-books.

I agree with those who prefer to have a tablet, to be able to do other stuff, as well. But other than that, those whom I know have Kindle are mostly teens (bought by their parents to encourage them to read) and enjoy using it.
