Speed reader

I'm a big reader, and always have been. Now that I usually only read before bed (aside from whatever I read during the day online), my habits have slowed considerably. The downside of a reading habit is clutter... there's just not enough room for all the bookshelves I would need! I do go to the library on occasion, but I love visiting bookstores and even the book row at Costco to find new reads.

If I had a spare $399 lying around, the first thing I would have to spend it on is the Amazon Kindle. This contraption is seriously cool in my book. (ha.) Upon first release, Amazon could not keep it in stock - but now, as of today - it's back!

The Kindle is a "portable reading device with the ability to wirelessly download books, blogs, magazines, and newspapers." The device is about the size of a paperback book (weighs even less), and features a display that resembles electronic paper to reduce eye strain normally incurred from electronic displays. Currently the Kindle store contains over 110,000 books, plus newspapers, magazines, and blogs, and is growing every day. That's a lot of reading!!

You know, $399 is a lot cheaper than a nice bookshelf full of books...
And, Brian is out of town right now...
