The New Kindle

What's better than spending $359 on the new Kindle 2? Letting someone else (i.e. MWM) spend that much, than taking the original model for your own, for free!

We must admit we were pretty jealous on our last trip as we lugged our heavy, overloaded carry-on stuffed with different books to read, to see the MWM, walking unencumbered through the airport carrying just his Kindle. He was able to have a dozen different books with him, while only carrying one little lightweight device.

While the new version is pretty sweet, we will enjoy our hand-me-down for awhile.
