I was given a Kindle before Christmas and I have to say that I am a convert.  I love my books, and suspect I will always love to be surrounded by books.  But, the Kindle is much more of a success than I had imagined. And, a must for travelling.  I loaded all the Jane Austen's.  Lovely.  Pride and Prejudice and Emma down and Sense and Sensibilty about to be tackled.  I cannot tell you how much I have enjoyed re-visiting these old stories.  An absolute joy...
