When I was in Boulder last week, a colleague mentioned that he had a Kindle, so I got a chance to play with one - it's a lot smaller than I imagined and not as bad looking as I had expected from reading reviews.
Anyhow, I was so smitten that I ordered one there and then to be delivered on my return to Seattle the following day.
It has seriously changed how I read.
I have always have been a prolific reader, but every time I went anywhere I struggled with the decision about what books to take.
Now I just take everything.
In addition to books, you can email your kindle PDF files (amongst other formats), so I've sent a bunch of papers to it, including the Larrabee paper.
