I have had my Kindle for almost a year now. I ordered it a year ago tomorrow… I think it was the first day you COULD order them.
Anyway, here’s my assessment: The Kindle is the best thing EVER! I’m reading more because of it, and my ONLY complaint is that it is awkward to use with a book that has footnotes. Here are some fun Trixie Kindle stats:
- Books purchased on the Kindle: 87
- Pages I read electronically instead of on paper: Approximately 26,000
- Trees I saved: 1/3 (A bit disappointing)
- Cost of the Kindle: $399.99 (the price has since dropped)
- Money spent on Kindle books: Approx $750.00
- Money SAVED buying the digital version of books: $757.47
- 1st book I bought on my Kindle: "The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao" by Junot Diaz
- Book I’m currently reading on my Kindle: "Just After Sunset: Stories" by Stephen King
- Most expensive Kindle book I purchased: "Not in the Flesh" by Ruth Rendell. Price $16.02.
- Least expensive Kindle book I purchased: "The Complete Works of Sherlock Holmes" for 99 cents.
All hail the mighty Kindle!
