Well, I’ve had my new Kindle for one whole week. What are my impressions so far? First and foremost, this device is great for reading. The screen is very easy on the eyes. The size and weight make it really comfortable for reading for extended periods of time. And it’s great for reading in bed since you don’t have to worry about shifting a book around to hold the pages open.

So far, however, I haven’t started tearing through books. I’ve been reading The Host by Stephenie Meyer, but I’m only about halfway through it. My excuse for this is that I’m spending an inordinate amount of time just playing around with the device, downloading samples and testing the web browser. I suspect that I’ll actually start reading on the device more regularly this week since some of the newness has worn off.
