Last week Woot! had a pretty good deal on the Kindle 2. While I was waiting for eInk devices to drop to really low, $40 bucks off the regular price was something I couldn't pass up.

So I've spent the evening with the Kindle and I like it. Amazon has a nice selection of free books, as do google books and other sites.

The screen is crisp, the eInk refresh is fast and barely noticeable. It is much better looking than the touch Sony device I had looked at earlier this year. Though admittedly the touch screen film is supposed to dull the text sharpness slightly.

I look forward to enjoying lots of books on the Kindle, which, by the way, will sync current page locations with the Kindle app I have on my tablet, should I ever need to read in the dark!
