Get one Waterlily!
I love to read but just don't have time or the cash to go to bookstores and spend:
1. Easily $100 on 3 or 4 books
2. Secondhand books are exy now too!
So a kindle has just made it so much easier and cheaper for me

Definitely get one! I love the portability of it. And how I gon't get tired of holding up a heavy book in bed. Plus if I fall asleep reading it I don't crumple pages or get awoken by thudding the book on my face. I don't like it when... the battery gets low at the best part and I have to get off my lazy butt and plug it in!

Hi I have just got a kindle and it's the best present ever! I also am/was a book lover and had shelves and shelves!! I'm sure you will love it.
I haven't had any trouble downloading books. I don't have a 3G one just wifi. I use network at home it's easy. Kindle also have a happy hour each day and the books are very cheap too. When you set up your account you should find info for it.
I also know another site where books are cheap for download but I'm on my phone so i will post link later.

The Sony you can purchase books via borders and angus Robertson and it supports more file file types according to DH. I bought the cover with built in book light too which works great.
I love my new e-reader!!!

I'm pretty sure the book depository has e-books for the Sony e-reader.
(I live on that site) and I know I have seen the Sony e-readers for sale on there so just presuming you can get the books too.

Its the top 100 paid/free books on Amazon. I check it once or twice a week and find heaps of new books. Some books arent available here in Australia. Anything by Steig Larrson (Girl with the dragon tattoo etc) isnt available here. You can click on the link and it will tell you whether or not you can buy the book. There are a few other bigger authors that are also not available here
This doesnt worry me, the books are a bit too exy for me anyway. If I really wanted to read one I would go and borrow it from the library.
