11. I LOVE my Kindle!
I have had a kindle for over a year now, and I love it! The big plus for me is that you can subscribe to blogs and newspapers on the kindle, and it's really cheap. I get the NYT News feed, which is quite extensive (several long articles, updated several times a day), for $1.99 a month. That's a steal! I also love the fact that you can browse amazon's vast book selection, download samples, and if you decide to buy a book, you just press a button, and 60 seconds later you have the complete book on your kindle! So much easier than hooking something up to the computer. Also, you can do basic web browsing with it, nothing really picture-heavy, but enough to e.g. check the weather on yahoo.
