Right now Amazon offers the [easyazon-link asin=”B008SYWFNA”]Kindle Fire HD 7″, Dolby Audio, Dual-Band Wi-Fi, 32 GB – Includes Special Offers[/easyazon-link] for $199. I can’t live without my Kindle. If you are the type that says that you need to feel the paper and weight of a book to feel like you are reading let me tell you something: I used to say the same thing! But then I got a Kindle and am now a complete convert. I can’t imagine holding an actual book anymore. Holding the spine so the pages are open seems to awkward now! Plus I have a library of hundreds of books right at my fingertips. I have yet to meet the person that says they regret buying a Kindle.
