Summary: The new kindle is definetly the best one yet. I like to read but at a slow pace and my sister reads at a fast pace. We used to share a kindle 2 (I use the word share loosly because she would always steal it from me) after my old original kindle I handed down to her was stolen. Now that I have my new kindle 3 she uses the kindle 2. I would have not gotten the newer kindle if it were not for this. If you currently have a kindle 2 it is not worth buying a new one just yet but if you have the original kindle I would recomend it.
I am a high school student and I do use my kindle for textbooks. The school I currently go to had major budjet cuts and can't afford to give each student a textbook to keep at home. I would never take my kindle to school (my sister had her kindle stolen because she did) but keeping my textbooks at school and using my kindle at home saves me from carrying about 30Ib. of books to my home and back every day.
I know that I am only a high school student but I have an online store that sells bumper stickers, t shirts, and other cheap stuff to help me get money for college. Every 6 months I have to take a week long trip to Orlando (I live n the pan handle of Florida) to pick up the products I ordered and to make sure my order is correct. During this trip I don't even need to pack my kindles charger.
The only cons I really have is that the buttons to tur the pages are smaller which is something I am really getting used to. This really isn't a con but the just imagine reading a romance novel with text to speach lol. All of the pros are listed on amazons site. Also if you are definetly getting the new kindle get the one with both wifi and 3G because it is free 3G wireless and your only going to pay an extra $50 for it. If you are still not sure about what company your going to buy an e-reader from choose amazom because of the price and extra features it allows. My dad had sony's e-reader but returned it because the touch screen is a little blury and can get annoying. The nook is also a good e-reader but the touch screen really just sucks power out of the battery. Also the nook does not have as many books available as amazon does and it does not have a web browser.
