I really want a kindle any thoughts?

Kindels are cheaper and have alot more books, but you're talking to a Mac brat. I say go with the Ipad! A lot more functionality. - Knik  456.6 #478 8:56PM
everyone i know who has one loves it. but i'll never make the switch. there is just something so gorgeous about holding a book in my hands, flipping the pages, jotting down little notes in the margins. i'd never give that up. - GlassSlippers  363.6 #633 8:57PM
Yes it's awesome. I have like 20 disney related books on mine - SUUZinOCretiredPLAID  1036.1 #177 8:58PM
Go for the iPad definitely! So much more fun and useful! I love mine! - champers  25.1 #6513 8:58PM
Love my nook, I can replace the battery. - sewgirl  342.6 #697 8:58PM
I would miss holding a real book... And the smell lol - Melli_mo  506.1 #419 8:58PM
I totally agree GlassSlippers!!ξ€Šξ…ˆ - JessM4  269.6 #1171 9:00PM
I'm a Mac freak but I live my kindle!! So worth it - Pixarprincess  544.4 #376 9:00PM
I have 4 book shelves so I really don't want more. I hear an iPad is heavy to read on? - TulareMama  27.0 #6280 9:00PM
Depends when and where you read. If at the beach or somewhere bright the kindle is awesome. But if its mostly at home a iPad works well - jon-t  190.5 #2108 9:01PM
I have a first generation Kindle and a Nook color. I prefer the Kindle. Better for outside reading better battery life. They have more books then the Nook and most are cheaper. If I could afford one I would have bought a Ipad tho..... - Katrayher  781.0 #239 9:01PM
I also love holding a book, but I must say, I LOVE my Kindle. Wish I would have paid the extra for the 3G though! - PrincessKristin  780.8 #240 9:03PM
I love my iPad. Wouldnt even consider another e reader of any kind. I don't find it heavy and I love the backlight so I can read in the dark - Missshelly  698.3 #277 9:08PM
Everyone I know with ereaders love kindle. - KissDclown  1089.1 #167 9:08PM
My daughter loves her Kindle. She says there's no glare on the screen like with the iPad. Her dad has an iPad and she's noticed the difference on the screen. - Diznimom  225.2 #1666 9:20PM
In old school and will boycott kindles as long as possible. There's nothing like holding a book, old or new. - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #197 9:21PM
I have a nook (yuk) and an iPad I love! I read in bed with hubby asleep and need the back light. I also switch to MW when he's not looking. But first choice is always a real book. - SueBayou  2019.0 #78 9:23PM
i really want an ipad, i can do so much more on it - diznymommy84  215.9 #1787 9:37PM
My Kindle cover has a built in light, its great for reading in bed. - PrincessKristin  780.8 #240 9:41PM
Have a smartphone that can utilize a kindle and also have a few other reading apps that allow me to read on my phone. I like them. :) - ChipnDalefan  13.6 #9122 9:45PM
My mom just got one and loves it! - saratheprincess  8.9 #11857 9:46PM
My daughter has the Nook color and is addicted to it! I have the iPad and have the Kindle app. I LOVE IT! - vanessa3198  10.9 #10425 9:47PM
My mother bought me one for my birthday this year and I love it-----especially when travelling! but I still read paperbacks too!!! Nothing wrong with having both! - rickandyvonne  11.3 #10184 9:47PM
Go with the NOOK its great - LittleMermaidAriel  16.9 #8027 9:48PM
I wasn't that into iPads and then I got one. Now I tell everyone that it's awesome and you should get one if you get a chance. - Sandcar13  1408.2 #122 9:50PM
I wanted a kindle, but my hubby talked me into buying the ipad. I love my ipad, but I dont read...I play angry birds instead! If you want to read, go with the kindle. - Loca4dzny  16.0 #8282 9:50PM
BTW saves trees. ;) plus more portable. (Cases like mine where it's on a phone, ipads and such are a tad bigger but still portable) - ChipnDalefan  13.6 #9122 9:50PM
I got a nook color and I love it. It can play games and I can read books and comics off it. - Fanatix  282.4 #29 9:51PM
I love my kindle!!!! My eyes don't hurt after hrs of reading... My friend has the iPad with the kindle app, and he bought a kindle so he doesn't have the glare or eye strain. - PlaidCM  186.4 #2166 9:52PM
I read on my iPad but iBooks doesn't have everything available and the kindle does. I would get a kindle! - akpoppins  263.8 #1224 9:53PM
My mothe swears by hers. She tells me it is they best thing she has ever bought, and will die if she loses it. - harmonylove  209.3 #1884 1:16AM
I love love love my kindle! Like, big time. Didn't think id like not having a book but its really easy to use and read. You can download books in less than 60 seconds and its thin enough I keep it in my purse. I ALWAYS have it with me (which is like having a library with you!). Soo did I mention that I kinda like my kindle..? Hehe - LoveDland  336.1 #719 1:25AM
Totally agree with Glass Slipper. Those are exactly my same sentiments! Love ξ…ˆ's!! - jjdq  338.0 #711 1:28AM
Books and I don't get along. My step dad took my kindle. He loves it. I decided to wait till the kindle color to come out - jon-t  190.5 #2108 1:30AM
I can't stand reading books on LCD screens so I bought a kindle. The battery is great for my 12 hour trips to DL and I don't need to bring a charger even if I'm down there for a week. If I really want to read at night I just bring a case light or open the kindle app on my phone which syncs to what page I'm on. - dough  128.2 #3068 2:40AM
I looooooove my kindle, it is the best gift I ever received. I'm a college student majoring in English specifically American Literature and I love being able to be assigned a book in class and not having to beat my classmates to the library or the prices at the bookstore, I can just download it in seconds. my kindle goes everywhere with me so I don't have to carry around 40lbs worth of books in my purse anymore :] - Ginger  6.5 #15004 3:24AM
I debated a while on getting one, ended up with a nook. Reasons: you can lend/borrow books from friends, replace the battery if ever needed, has a color touch screen and was lighter. I didn't get the full color nook but I LOVE it. So easy to read and use - ljoy  5.1 #18347 5:29AM
I love mine!! Very convenient - ToshiStation  54.4 #4605 5:48AM
I love mine! I got it for Christmas. I have the 3G and can get new books wherever I'm at and don't need wi-fi. If you read outside, it's the only one with a non-glare screen and you can read in bright sunlight. The pages look like a regular book. My daughter has one too and if we want to share books, we just trade kindles. - AlwaysDreaming  250.7 #1341 5:49AM
I have the kindle app on my phone and have not used it.. no time for reading... - Pintraderswife  468.3 #461 5:57AM
I have the Kindle app on my iPhone and do use it. I like reading on my iPhone. It is easier to hold. Try Kindle on your smart phone first - I downloaded a free book to test run the system. - 2ndStar2theRight  24.5 #6599 6:11AM
I wasn't so sure either, but received one as a gift. The battery life is pretty amazing, it's really easy on the eyes (even in the sun) and it is pretty cool to be able to bring all your reading with you in such a tiny package. It does not crack open the way a new or really old book does which is a negative for me. - wannahockaloogie  180.3 #2249 6:18AM
My dad has a kindle and he absolutely loves it. I have a nook and I love it :] ereaders are great. No matter which one you get I'm sure you won't very disappointed :] - niickayy  23.3 #6794 6:29AM
Thank you all for the thoughts, have a Great Day - TulareMama  27.0 #6280 11:18AM
The ipad!! - sassesarah4u  133.6 #2987 11:21AM
Also the Nook color makes my eyes hurt!!! - Katrayher  781.0 #239 11:21AM
