This time last year I absolutely hated them but now I have my own and I love it. I got all of Charles Dickens' work for 99p and it is great for all the classics. It's really easy to read in bed too. However, I know it's destroying book shops and the whole publishing industry - which is rather worrying for me as I want to be an author. Yet I can't stop myself loving mine - what does everyone think?
I don't have one, but my sister does and I think they're great. They are so much easier to carry around, and it saves space when packing for holiday. You shouldn't worry about it affecting authors - they still get money from people buying the digital editions, and real books probably won't die out within our lifetimes.
I have one and it's great for travelling. I read really quickly so it save a lot of space that would otherwise be full of books. I have the complete Sherlock Holmes and Hitchhicker's Guide to the Galaxy as well as lots of others and Amazon do free books for them as well.
I don't think they'll ever destroy book shops- Kindles are good, but its much more satisfing to hold the book.
I also want to be an author! (As well as farming)

Yes, I use it for travelling to save space, and I have to say that I always buy my favourite books as books. The best thing for me is how easy it is to buy a book - I can download in 30 seconds when I read about one in a magazine or forum.
By the way I think the pigs on you picture are really cute :)
Thanks! I'm helping raise them on a farm near by in Hadlow Down. They're called Ethel Dora Colin and Bob. (my brother and sister named them)
They are really cute names! But Dora makes me think Dora the Explorer which made me laugh ( but then again I once named a lamb on a farm near me wooly jumper!)
