    Has anyone purchased or even seen the video for the new electronic reading device by Amazon (no, I don't work for them :))??

    I showed it to my 13 yr. old son and he wants one and he's not even an avid reader, I have to push him!

    It's prety incredible; Amazon sold out in hours and they are backordered. It sure makes carrying books noexistent!

    Be sure and read the comments - of course, there are those who love it and those who are disappointed.
    Also, I didn't know there were other devices out there like the Kindle. Just thought I'd say that. :)

    Wow, that's pretty cool. But I don't think I would spend $400 for one.

    I think I'll tell my mom if she can find one for a bit less before Christmas that I would like one for christmas. :) I can't see paying that much for it when I can sometimes find those books for even less than 10, but I am curious....

    I did see this about a month ago and I was meaning to post something on here about it. I think it is so cool. A little pricey since you still have to pay for the books but super cool anyway.
