One thing I've noticed about the fire is Amazon doesn't want you to think of it as an e-reader. They don't even show a picture of the reader app on the Fire's webpage. I don't know if it's because Jeff Bezos put down reading on a tablet so much that now he has to live up to that. It's very frustrating because many people read on their tablets just fine. I have it on pre-order. I'm looking forward to some of the early reviews.
I had a nook color, but returned it because of screen bleeding. I'm wondering if I should have just exchanged it for another one??
