Just got a Kindle for my birthday (the $99 one with ads and a keyboard). Took a while to get past the WiFi problems of not accepting my password, but all seems fine now. Have downloaded a ton of free books, classics I never got around to reading (Red Badge of Courage), interesting titles by no name (yet) authors, and one on how to get more free books. So far I really love it. In an ideal world would have asked for an ipad2, but pensions being what they are...nah.
