Wink More e-books bought with a Kindle?

Since I've got my Kindle, I've bought and download more e-books than before.
My first e-reader was an iLiad and I bought some books, but it was rather expensive, so I downloaded lots of free classic books.

But now, in the evening, I often sit with my iPad; look at the guy under the tree in the Kindle apps; night is falling, stars appear. Then I go to ' Shop in Kindle Store' and there it is: it welcomes me ' hello, Desertblues' , we have recommendations for you'.

I know, it is marketing, but hard to resist. So I look at the recommendations: yes, there's one I want. Hm, under 10 dollars, even less in euros; here I go----one click away from book-bliss. ..and again and again.

I try to keep a check on things and will download a few free books; also recommendated. When downloading these, I feel very sensible.
The expensive ones go on my wish-list.

But in all, in spite of the low book-prices of Amazon, I find me spending more money on e-books than before (not to mention the Oberon-covers) and I wonder: am I the only one? What are your experiences? Can you all keep a hold on yourselves ?
