My birthday is later this month. As a surprise, my wife brought me a Kindle. I know this, not because she told me; she didn't. In fact she refused to tell me. But I was able to guess correctly from the clues she let drop. Once I guessed, she admitted it.
I'm sure I will enjoy using the e-book reader. I certainly can use it to debug the Kindle version of my e-book.
Interestingly enough, a friend of mine, another writer, got a Kindle for his birthday in January from his wife. It does seems that 2011 is the year of the Kindle. I'll be sure to post a review of the device here once I receive and start using it.
I am very interested to see if the claim Amazon makes, about being able to read text of the screen in bright sunlight, is true. I say this because I am thinking about purchasing an iPad and the commercial Amazon runs showing this capability really slams the iPad but good. Of course, the iPad does a lot more but I'm trying to determine what e-book format to investigate in.
So I may have many more gadgets to play with soon. Technology, can't live with it ...
