    Question Some Help Please.

    I want to buy a Kindle or something along those lines as I am fed up humping books around when I travel. I love reading and go through 2 to 3 books in a normal week and when on holidays I can go through 1 to 2 books a day. My laptop is fine for the internet etc. so I am just looking for something to read books on or ideally also store/play music, would really appreciate some advice.
    Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened

    Kindle is a very good option

    iPad and tablets get very heavy after a few pages
    Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.

    I really like the kindle, the ease with downloading books is great, finish one 5 minutes later you can be starting another, plus depending on what you like some can be got as cheap as 99p stg.

    I hate the idea of ebook, but had to get a book asap and only option was kindle app on iPad, I have mini and didn't find heavy I wear glasses for reading and found size just perfect I found iPad or tablets more useful than a kindle itself, for music emails browsing..etc.
    Good bye Ireland!

    I have a Kindle Paperwhite. It is not expensive (somewhere around 135 euro), and I think it is still the best e-reader. It just works, you can read it in the dark, and the battery will last an entire holiday.

    I think it is well worth having this as well as any laptops / tablets etc, because it is so much better to use.

    Kindles are a waste of money IMO. Get an iPad mini. Much more functional.

    I have a kindle fire, it's kind of half tablet-half e-reader and the battery life is amazing.
