Last winter my boss bought the Amazon Kindle, and shortly after let me borrow it for a trip. Like most people I was a little skeptical, but since I love electronics and books I gave it a try. And I loved it. It's a little expensive for me to buy one for myself, especially since I always get books from the library, but I love the eco-friendliness factor. It can hold upwards of 200 books, so it saves a lot of paper (and room), and money since the e-books are cheap. It is also quite pleasant to read off of, and you can even highlight sections, take notes, and browse the internet.
