    Nice to know you've based your decision on some research of what the Kindle actually is!

    I have the app on my android (well I did) and I used it all the time. Read way more books.
    I'm hopefully getting a Kindle for Christmas, it'll be handy for me seeing as I travel a lot and can never decide what book to take, now I can take them all!

    I don't like the idea and don't plan on buying one. But I'm sure my attitude will change in the coming years - you can't stop progress, maaan.

    I'm actually aiming to skip the Kindle stage and move straight from paper books to downloading them into my head in a couple of decades.

    Sure, but that's the whole point of ebook readers like the Kindle: they aren't backlit and have adjustable font sizes. If you're going to argue for books, at least understand what the enemy is!
