Would You Use This?

The Amazon Kindle was released in France this morning. So far the only kindle books available on Amazon are in English which means that, unless they start including books in French, the sales will probably remain limited .

While I was talking via Skype with my sister-in-law she asked my opinion about this new device. She had read an article about it today and was considering getting one.

Being an avid book reader I have mixed feelings about the Kindle. I suppose it is tempting to be able to store and easily access hundred of books. On the other hand I reckon I would miss the paper and the feeling of a book, not to mention the fact that it can’t be used on Shabbat.

Do you own a Kindle or have you ever tried one? Do you think you might ever succomb and get one?
