Friends, Romans, Countrymen, lend me your...

...kindle! A good friend of mine has put a lot of trust and faith in me and lent me her kindle so I can read a few of the books she had downloaded on it!

While I can understand the convenience of the kindle or other e-readers, it sure makes the statement "curling up with a good book" redundant but books like UnderThe Dome by Stephen King would be wonderful to read on the kindle. The hard cover is over 1000 pages so its not a good book for curling up with! You might break your nose if you fall asleep reading as many people are oft to do. The kindle would be great to take with you to the gym if you planned on using any exercise equipment or if you're a big commuter. Very handy and convenient.

But the jury's still out on whether it'll compare to curling up with a good book. I'll let you know!

Definitely no comparison! I love my Kindle, but it's just not the same. I use mine to read books that I probably wouldn't keep if I bought, and also for when I travel. I often travel for 2-week blocks, and rather than lug a ton of books with me, I take one for the plane, one for the ride home, and use my Kindle the rest of the time. It's great to own one, but I love the feel off the book in my hands.
