I haven't received any new unsolicited sample since my original post of Aug. 30
By the way, I read on both the Kindle 3 and the STR and the STR is definitely way more ergonomic to use. With my wrists problems, my body tells me right away if something is not ergonomic. The STR is lighter and generally just more comfortable to hold and turn pages. I love the rubberized skin of the STR. I can read with this ereader for hours.
But if BN does not stop this practice of sending unsolicited samples, I am jumping ship as soon as Amazon comes up with a touch Kindle e-ink.
