i have had a kindle for about 18 months now.would prefer not to read the old fashioned way anymore. the kindle is the best present i have ever been given. its lightweight and can be read anywhere without worrying about sunlight . i have eyesight problems and its the best thing that i can make the text bigger when my eyes get tired. am waiting for the kindle fire to be released in the uk so i can have that . books download in seconds so have never been short of something to read. if i get caught out and forgot to take it with me i can read my book on my phone and it takes me to the place i was up to , no more bookmarks. love it

After sayin for such a long time that I didn't want one and that I prefered the feel of a real book in my hands, I was given a kindle for christmas. Now, I wouldn't be without it. The ease of use and quality of the screen is spot on, just like reading a normal book page. One plus point that i find is that you don't even have to hold it, I can just have it there on the side and it's perfectly readable, unlike a book where you have to hold it open. Thats not to say i'm too lazy to hold a book open, it's just handy not to sometimes. The battery seems to last forever too, probably because it's not back-lit. Well worth having in my opinion.

I to think the kindle is brill , best thing is if you r not in mood for book u r reading u just look for something else, no trip to town or anywhere all done in seconds in the comfort of your own home. Loads to choose from i thought my dansette record player was best ever present but kindle is a real contender lol xxx

I'm like Stegga - said I'd never have one as I love the feel of a real book but I couldn't be without mine now. Love it!! Best thing I've ever bought!

This might be of some interest to you.
£79 Kindle with code. Use discount code TDX-7PKF at Tesco Direct* and get £10 off when you spend over £75 - making usually £89 Kindle just £79 (collect free in-store). Code valid until Wed 1 Feb. When buying from Tesco you'll also get Clubcard points.

Code also works on 3G & Wi-fi Kindle Keyboard*, making it £139 (see below for spec).

I think Tesco are (they definitely were just after Christmas) selling the £89 one in store with a free cover which is worth £20!

I've had one for about 18 months and am still very pleased with it.

The only negatives are that there seem to be more typos than in a normal books, and not all books are available in electronic form. Hopefully this will get better.

The battery life is great, provided you remember to switch the wireless bit off after downloading it. The books are a few pounds cheaper than a paperback too, and some are available free. Most classics can be obtained from the Gutenberg project free of charge for instance.

Amazon let you try reading a sample before you buy it which is useful, and if you make a mistake and buy a book you don't want it can be returned. It's rather easy to press the wrong button sometimes.

If you fall asleep whilst reading it, it too goes to sleep after a few minutes, remembering where you had got to so that when you switch on, you are returned automatically to the page you were on.

Be aware, also, that if you buy the £89 one, you don't get a charger. However, as it uses a miniature USB connection you can charge it from your computer if you have a suitable cable or buy a cheapo charger separately.

Good luck. Hope you like it as much as I do.

We got my mother in law one for Christmas

In all honestly we was very disappointed

I thought it would of been bigger and touch screen which this one wasn't

Plus it's as light as a feather, mother in law was made up And loved it but I won't be getting one I'm afraid .
