So, I’m back to my Kindle 2 thought…
My husband and I have talked about it several times since I posted my blog the other day, and we’ve decided that we’re just going to have to pass on it right now. We started wondering about feeling like we had to justify the high price tag… and how I (as a compulsive collector) would feel like I had to replace all of my books in the Kindle format. And, once I did that… what would happen with all of those Kindle books if the actual gizmo broke?!?
I would have to look into it, but once the warranty runs out, I am assuming that we would have to buy another gizmo, since all of our books would be in that format. (I think that’s called a Catch 22, endless loop type of a deal!)
I reminded my husband that I thought it would be a nice gift for him, not me. He assured me that he does not want one, as he feels like he would have to be particularly careful with it, since he wouldn’t want the hassle involved with having to replace it before he could access any of his books (which would all be in the Kindle format) if the gizmo broke… even under its warranty time, he wouldn’t want to have to wait until a new gizmo arrived.
So, I guess for now, we are going to pass on the Kindles and stay with our “real” books.
