Ooh. Was looking at my dad's Kindle yesterday envy

The free Pride & Prejudice is annoyingly typeset, though. Full caps instead of italics, making emphasised speech look kind of absurd.

Not that I'm bitter about not having one, or anything.

You can download free e-books from torrents as well if you're handy with that sort of thing! But be sure you are careful, most books will have copyrights still valid, but I managed to get a huge load of copyright-free books (including many many classics!) from torrent sites, many bunch them together too! smile

Yay! Mine has just arrived. Now I am over the stroking stage (for now - but is so pretty this may only be a temporary lapse) I would like to call upon the might of Mumsnet to recommend me some books! Thanks in advance.
