I got a Kindle 3 recently, and have read one book using it. I'm liking it so far. The e-ink screen is very readable and easy on the eyes, and the device is light and comfortable to hold. I haven't used any of the special features -- adjustable text size, bookmarks, highlights, notes, dictionary look up -- but it's good to know that they are there, and I expect I will use some of them eventually. I think my main source of reading material will continue to be regular paper and ink books from the library, but the Kindle will be useful for books I want to read that the library doesn't have. And I may find myself using it more as time goes on. I know that was my experience with my iPod Touch. At first I wasn't sure that I even needed it, but now 95% of my music listening is done on the iPod.
