I’m still hoping for a full color Kindle to be released this fall/holiday season. Then I might bite!


Amazon should advertise those 1.8 million free ebooks. That definitely raised my interest in the kindle.


Until they can sell them for $50 or less, most people will be buying books.


When I bought my Kindle 1 a couple of years ago, I thought that it was too expensive to outpace books. After using it for a couple of weeks, I soon saw the advantages (especially when on vacation) and I have not purchased a single paper book since.
