In love with my new Kindle 3

When the original Kindle released, I didn’t bite. I decided to wait until version 3. That wait ended this past week. My new Kindle 3 arrived on Thursday. It was worth the wait.

To catch some of you up to speed, the Kindle is a wireless reading device. It holds books like an iPod holds music. And, just like an iPod, it does a lot more.

At some point in the future, I may share a more comprehensive review of the Kindle. But, for now, let me give my first impressions of the new device.

After I purchased my first iPod it was only a matter of months before I stopped buying CDs. I can easily see how having the Kindle will likely mean I’ll only purchase and read electronic versions of books going forward. Books are cheaper that way. And, honestly, it’s a lot easier for me to have several books available on my Kindle than trying to carry books around in my book bag when I travel.

Just in case you’re curious, Kamelot?s Poetry For The Poisoned was the first album I downloaded to my iPod. And Sun Tzu’s Art Of War was the first book I downloaded to my Kindle 3.

Any other Kindle owners out there? What do you have to add to this initial review?
