I had both the Kindle and Aldiko readers on the Droid, that that was good enough for some books to carry around for reference ... but then ...
Well, but then I was offered a free Kindle (2nd gen it turns out) with my credit card. What the heck, I took it.
It arrived yesterday and only played around with it a bit (testing some publications I had converted to epub/mobi for work purposes) before my wife took off with it to read her book club book (Sinclair Lewis's Main Street).

Minitel: "The new art of communicating worldwide". Before there was widespread use of the Internet, there was Minitel. Just ran across my old account handbook. Great services like: Eaasy Sabre (flight info, $.20/minute); Wall Street Quotes ($.20/minute); Send a Western Union Mailgram ($.10/minute).
